Many people across the country are affected by slips, trips and falls. Sometimes they happen in public; other times, they happen at work. But if you were injured and it was someone else’s fault, it doesn’t matter where it happened – you could qualify for compensation and should make a personal injury claim.
Who is responsible for paying my compensation if I am injured in a slip, trip or fall?
If it happened at work, your employer has insurance called employer liability insurance, which will cover it. They must have this type of insurance by law, with the exception of government funded employers who pay the compensation themselves.
If you slipped, tripped or fell whilst out in public – perhaps on an uneven surface – then the local council will have its costs covered by public liability insurance.
