Slips, trips and falls
Some of the most common accidents for which we help people seek compensation are slips, trips and falls.
These can happen anywhere, any time, but in most cases the people involved will just chalk the experience up to bad luck. However, under certain circumstances, such an accident can be much more than that. If there is evidence to suggest that negligence was the cause of the accident, then you could be able to make a personal injury accident claim in Stoke-on-Trent if you were hurt.
Could you have a case?
You could be able to make a claim if you can prove that the negligence of another party caused your slip, trip or fall.
For example, if flagstones in the pavement were not secure and you fell and hurt yourself, you could be able to hold the council liable if they knew the pavement wasn’t safe for use and did not fix it/cordon it off. Similarly if you slipped on a wet floor in a public place, you could have grounds to make a claim if it can be shown that someone knew of the spillage or wet floor and didn’t clear it up.
If you are unsure about whether you have a claim, take our 30-second test. This unique claims calculator makes it easy to see not only if your claim is eligible, but also how much you could potentially stand to receive. If you would prefer to speak to someone about the circumstances surrounding your accident, our lines are open 24/7.
