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.Open Claim Calculator
