    How to claim slippy stairs compensation


    Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common accidents to cause injuries that could lead to a claim for personal injury compensation, and stairs can be surprisingly hazardous. Slippy stairs could lead to a slip and fall that could cause serious, life-changing injuries, and if somebody else’s negligence has caused your accident, you could find yourself in a position to claim slippy stairs compensation.

    At the end of the day, business owners have a responsibility to ensure that anyone visiting their premises is safe (under the Occupiers’ Liability Act 1957), so if you have been injured outside a business, the owners could be held liable and ordered to pay you compensation.

    Injuries caused by a stair fall

    Stairs that are slippy from ice or snow could be a hazard for anyone entering a public building such as a school or shop. Even stairs inside could pose a hazard if liquids have been spilt and not cleaned up. If you’ve slipped on a flight of stairs and fallen, here are a few of the most common injuries that could be sustained:

    • Head injuries if you hit your head on the stairs, hand rail or the ground as you fall
    • Broken bones, such as a fractured wrist or ankle
    • Facial injuries, including lost teeth or eye injuries such as a black eye
    • Strains and sprains
    • Bruises
    • Neck and back injuries

    A minor injury such as a sprained ankle could still lead to time off work and lost earnings, which is why it’s well worth considering making a claim for slippy stairs compensation if you have been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence. You could fall on slippy stairs outside a school or shop, in your place of work or even in a car park. But at least Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so anybody who has been injured can afford to make a personal injury claim.

    You deserve compensation

    Whilst there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of slipping on stairs – such as wearing shoes with good grips – at the end of the day somebody else has been negligent, and this has caused your accident. If business owners have failed to clear up spillages or keep stairs clear of ice and snow, and you’ve been injured as a result, give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500. Our team of expert personal injury advisors has years of experience helping members of the public claim compensation for slips, trips and falls and we have been endorsed by our patron, TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen.
