    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Shanklin


    Slips, trips and falls may sound like trivial, unfortunate events, but even the most minor of falls can result in long-term pain and inconvenience. If you have suffered a slip, trip or fall due to someone else’s negligence, you have every right to pursue a claim for compensation through an accident lawyer in Shanklin.

    Slip, trips and falls on pavements

    If you have tripped and fallen on a pavement and feel that the pavement had been left in a hazardous state, which led to your accident, you will be able to claim compensation. Pavements should be inspected regularly to ensure that they are free from hazards. In practice, this means that if you wish to claim compensation for an injury caused by a pavement accident, you must collect evidence to demonstrate that the accident was not your fault.

    • You must record the defect as quickly and accurately as possible, and take down the details of any witnesses to your accident.
    • Seeking medical advice: You must let a doctor create an official record of your injury.
    • Obtaining legal advice: You should contact an accident lawyer in Shanklin before you make an official complaint to your local authority.
    • Making an official complaint: You should make an official complaint to your local authority, thus establishing a record of your accident.

    Slips, trips and falls in private places

    If you have slipped, tripped or fallen in a private place, such as a supermarket or restaurant, and your fall was caused by a hazard, such as a wet floor, you have every right to claim personal injury compensation from the owners. If they fail to live up to their responsibilities, and you suffer a personal injury in an accident that was not your fault, you may well be entitled to claim compensation through an accident lawyer in Shanklin.
