Compensation for Slipping and Tripping Accidents

Slipping and tripping accidents are often just seen as moments of embarrassment. You might be in the supermarket when your accident happens and you just want to leave as quickly as possible. However, if you find you have had a slip because of a wet surface or a trip over an uneven one, and you have incurred an injury, you may be entitled to compensation.

You imagine when you are in public places that you are walking in safe conditions, and this is the case for many public and business areas in the UK, but occasionally untreated or slippery surfaces exist in some areas and the standards can be surprisingly poor.

If you are walking to the shops, the post office, or are out for some fresh air and you have tripped and fallen, you should consider whose fault this is. You might have tripped over a crack in the pavement that shouldn't have been there, or over an uneven paving slab, or fallen into or over a pothole. The result could be a broken bone or slipped disc or other injury. The next step is to consider who or what caused your injury.

You might slip over a substance in a public place, or in the workplace. Perhaps you have slipped on ice on an untreated pedestrian area. Many slipping and tripping accidents happen in the dark, in areas where there is inadequate lighting. The Council and Local Authority have a duty to maintain street lighting as well as pavements and roads to ensure that the general public are safe from harm. If they have not fulfilled this duty and you find yourself the victim of a personal injury accident of this kind, you should seek advice about claiming compensation.

The process of slip and trip accident claims involves showing negligence of another party, followed by evidence that the injury was caused by that party's negligence. You may not know if this is the case, so the best advice we can offer you is to simply contact us to discuss the details of your trip or slip. You may find that you are entitled to Compensation.

We offer helpful, free, friendly advice to all our clients, whatever the type of personal injury case. We also operate on a NO WIN, NO FEE* basis. Contact us today for help and guidance about making a claim.
