    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    True or false? To settle my case, I must attend court

    All too often, people injured by slipping in supermarkets, on pavements, or in other public places fail to claim for compensation because they believe that compensation claims are complicated, expensive and inevitably mean that they will eventually have to attend court hearings. This, however, is not necessarily the case.

    Slips, trips and falls

    Supermarkets, other organisations and public authorities are legally bound to prevent injuries to the public. It is their legal duty to ensure that all areas within their premises are free of hazards likely to cause customers, visitors and employees to fall, trip or slip. This includes keeping exterior surfaces like car parks and walkways in good repair, free of ice and snow, and so on. It also means interior flooring, stairs and other pathways must be kept clean, dry and free of boxes, packaging materials and other clutter likely to represent a risk of accidental injuries.

    Slip injury compensation

    Breaching this legal duty leaves the responsible authority liable to pay personal injury compensation if the breach leads to an accident. If, for example, a customer is injured after slipping on squashed fruit left on the floor of a supermarket, the customer has the legal right to claim for injury compensation.

    Public liability claims

    While claiming compensation does mean the injured individual has to provide evidence of their injury and prove that the incident causing their injury was someone else’s fault, it is by no means as complicated and expensive as many people believe. It also does not necessarily mean the claimant will have to attend court proceedings. The process of claiming for accidental injury compensation is made far easier by contacting Accident Advice Helpline.
