Slips, trips and falls are very common and affect many people across the country. Sometimes they happen at work but they may also occur in a public place. Wherever it happened, if it was someone else’s fault and you were injured, you could be eligible for compensation.
Who pays if you get injured in a slip, trip or fall?
If it happened in public – for example, because of an uneven pavement – then the local authority’s public liability insurance will cover the costs they incur in paying out compensation.
If it was a work accident, your employer’s employer liability insurance will cover it. They must, by law, be insured.
