    Compensation for slipping on steps


    Most of us will go up or down at least one flight of steps on a daily basis, whether there are steps outside your place of work, steps up to your local council building or even a flight of steps outside your child’s school. But not many of us stop to think that steps could be dangerous – poorly maintained steps could be a hazard that could lead to a serious accident, and slipping on steps could leave you seriously injured. Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim personal injury compensation if slipping on steps has left you with a broken leg or more serious injuries.

    How did your accident occur?

    Steps are normally fairly safe and we go up and down them without thinking about our personal safety. During the winter months when there is ice and snow around, steps can quickly become hazardous if the ice and snow is not cleared away, creating slippery conditions that could lead to a fall. It’s the responsibility of business owners to ensure that steps outside their building (or even in a car park) don’t put visitors at risk of an accident – that includes clearing away ice and snow. Even spillages on steps could lead to accidents – spilt food or drinks could create a slippery surface that could leave you injured.

    It might be that you’ve suffered minor injuries after slipping on steps outside your child’s school – for example, you might have bruised or grazed knees and a sprained ankle. Chances are, you’ll still need a few days off work to recover after your accident, and that means lost earnings. More serious injuries such as a fractured leg or ankle, head injuries and facial injuries could mean weeks or months off work and even time spent in hospital. Accident Advice Helpline will take into account the impact your injuries have had on your life when we work out your personal injury settlement, and our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    Going to court

    Accident Advice Helpline has been in business since 2000 and during that time, the majority of our personal injury claims have been processed over the phone – it’s unlikely you’ll need to go to court to claim the compensation you deserve after your fall. Call us today on 0800 689 0500 and we will be able to tell you whether or not you have a viable claim; or for an idea of how much compensation you could be entitled to receive, take the 30-second test on our website right now.
