    Slipped or tripped in Uttlesford


    If you happen to have been unfortunate enough to have slipped or tripped in Uttlesford over an uneven pavement or on a shop floor, you may eligible to make a compensation claim for any injuries resulting from your accident.

    The people responsible for the safety of areas accessible to the public have a duty of care to protect you against injury. This means that they must do all they can to comply with health and safety regulations and keep you safe from harm. If they fail to do so, you will be able to sue them for compensation.

    What to do if you’ve slipped or tripped in Uttlesford

    If you are considering making an Uttlesford accident claim, you will need to seek the advice of a specialist personal injury solicitor. At Accident Advice Helpline, our professional legal team can explain the compensation claims process to you and discuss every aspect of your case, from the length of time the claims process will take right through to the size of the compensation settlement you could receive.

    All Uttlesford accident claims are associated with time limits, so if you wish to make a claim, you must contact us as soon as possible. If you fail to make your slip, trip and fall claim within three years of the date of your accident, the court may refuse to consider your claim.

    If your claim is successful, we will do our best to negotiate the best possible compensation settlement on your behalf. Your final settlement will consist of two main awards: general damages, which will compensate you for the pain and suffering you have had to cope with, and special damages, which will compensate you for the financial losses and expenses you have had to incur. In your claim for special damages, we will seek to include:-
