If you have been involved in a slip, trip or fall, you may be affected by injuries to any part of your body as a result; perhaps including your head, back, elbow, leg or ankle. These injuries can range from minor to severe – but no matter what the outcome of your accident, you should pursue your entitlement to receive compensation if you are eligible.
Am I entitled to make a no win no fee* slips injury claim?
Eligibility to make a claim is largely determined by the following considerations, although there may be some exceptions such as in the case of minors.
- Did your accident happen as a result of someone else’s negligence? In the case of slips, trips and falls, the person to blame may not be immediately obvious – it may be a public authority, for example – so it is always best to speak with an advisor to check.
- Did your accident result in injuries requiring medical attention? This may have been from an ambulance team, your local GP or an accident and emergency clinic.
- Did your accident happen within the past three years?
If you are still unsure about your entitlement, you may wish to use an online check tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second tool, or alternatively make a call to speak with an advisor.
