Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere – and they do, frequently. Whether you’re at work, in a public place, or on someone else’s premises (such as a shop) you could suffer a fall because you’ve slipped or tripped – and you could claim compensation through an accident lawyer in East Devon.
Claiming for slips, trips and falls
The claims process works like this:
- You call Accident Advice Helpline and speak to an adviser
- The adviser takes your details
- If you qualify to claim, your details are passed to an accident lawyer in East Devon
- The lawyer works on your behalf with the aim of securing you a payout
- If you win your case, you receive a payout
You can find out more about the process when you call us and tell a friendly, professional advisor about what happened to you.

Examples of slips, trips and falls
If you’re wondering what actually constitutes a slip and fall or trip and fall injury, here are some examples:
You’re walking in the local shopping centre and you slip on a wet patch. You fall on the hard floor, breaking your hip.
Whilst walking the dog in the park in winter, you slip on some ice and fall on the path. In attempting to break your fall, you fracture both your wrists.
You’re at work, walking across the office floor. You trip over a cable and fall. Landing awkwardly, you end up with bruises – and fracture a few ribs.
In all of these cases, an accident lawyer in East Devon could take on your case – and you could be awarded compensation.
The spillage in the shopping centre should have been cleared up, or there should have been a warning sign if the floor had recently been cleaned. The path in the park should have been gritted – it was winter, after all, so ice could reasonably have been expected. There shouldn’t have been a cable trailing across the office floor.
Clearly, the accident was not the fault of the victim in any of these cases.
