    Winning claims following falls, slips, and trips in public places


    Slips, falls or trips on pavements or car parks, in supermarkets or other public places can lead to personal injuries of varying degrees.

    Should you sustain such an injury due to no fault of your own, the law says you are entitled to suitable personal injury compensation with potentially winning claims.

    Making winning claims

    In order for winning claims against injury by trips, slips or falls to succeed, it is essential to prove who was responsible for the accident. This involves gathering information on how, when and where the accident by tripping, slipping, or falling occurred. It is therefore essential to:

    • Immediately inform relevant authorities (supermarket management, local council authorities, and so on)
    • Note the exact date, time, circumstances and location of the incident
    • Secure contact details of potential eye witnesses
    • Seek immediate medical help

    Medical assistance will not only ensure injuries are diagnosed and subsequently treated adequately, it will also ensure evidence of your injuries for winning claims.

    Their extent and potential impact on the quality of your life will be recorded within your official medical records.

    Claiming slip, trip, or fall compensation

    Claiming for trip, slip or fall related injuries in public places often involves complicated and potentially lengthy legal processes.

    It is therefore vital to get assistance in the form of an experienced, highly trained personal injury solicitor.

    You can get such qualified assistance by calling Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500
    from a landline or: 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.

    Accident Advice Helpline

    This company is not a compensation provider, but a law firm specialising in providing legal support to victims of slips, falls, and trips in public locations as well as other personal injuries. Initial advice and assessment of your claim potential are provided free of charge.

    Claims are then dealt with by solicitors with years of experience in conducting claims against personal injuries. All members of Accident Advice Helpline’s legal team operate on conditional fee agreements, meaning if a claim is not successful, no fee will be charged.

    Compensation claims taken on by Accident Advice Helpline are however, usually successful and you should receive the injury compensation you are entitled to within a comparatively short amount of time.

    Having said this, it is typically not possible to specify exact time frames or predict exactly how much you will receive, because each case differs. Both time and awarded compensation amounts depend on individual circumstances.
