    Tips to avoid falling down the stairs


    Injuries by falling down the stairs can be severe and could range from bruises, cuts or broken limbs to serious head, neck or back injuries. Preventing falling down the stairs is therefore of utmost importance.

    How to avoid falling down the stairs

    The following tips should minimise your risk of falling down the stairs:

    • Ensure there is adequate lighting
    • Keep stairs free of clutter and in good repair
    • Always hold on to handrails
    • Avoid carrying stuff while using stairs; if this cannot be avoided, try to carry the load in one hand while using the other hand to hold on to rails

    When using stairs in someone else’s home or a public place, prevent falling down the stairs by:

    • Minding your step and looking out for potential slip or trip hazards
    • Reporting any trip or slip hazards you spot immediately to those in charge of the premises to prevent others from being injured by tripping or slipping 

    Naturally, holding onto handrails and carrying loads as described above is equally important here.

    When mishaps occur

    If you are injured by a trip, slip or fall on someone else’s stairs because of clutter, inadequate lighting, or loose, damaged, wet or greasy flooring, for example, you may qualify for personal injury compensation.

    We established our law firm over 15 years ago to assist people like you get compensation for injuries by slips, trips and falls and other no-fault accidents. Our in-house team of solicitors boasts an exceptional success record.

    Operating on a no-win, no-fee basis, we can often bring claims to successful, satisfactory conclusions without the need for court proceedings. We can, however, not guarantee this, as situations and circumstances can vary significantly and no two claims are ever quite the same.

    When you call our freephone helpline, an advisor will first of all have to confirm your claim eligibility by asking you to provide them with some details concerning your personal injury and the accident that led to it. Naturally, any information you provide at this point will be kept confidential.

    Once we have confirmed your entitlement to claim, you will be offered the services of a solicitor specialising in public liability claims.
