    Slips, trips and falls in Hertfordshire


    How to avoid slips, trips and falls in Hertfordshire on a night out with friends

    When you are heading out for a night with your friends, you will be thinking about where you are going, how you are going to get home, and what you want to do while you are out. When it comes to accidents, it is unlikely that you will be thinking about the things that could go wrong, or things like slips, trips and falls in Hertfordshire.

    However, slips, trips and falls in Hertfordshire are more common on nights out that you may think, with nightspots being full of hazards which could cause these types of accidents. You need to be aware of the risks as well as thinking about what you can do to avoid them:

    • Watch out for each other. If you have a minor slip up when you are out, point out to the rest of your friends what you have just slipped or tripped on so that they don’t make the same mistake. You could prevent someone else being injured through no fault of their own.
    • Wear the right shoes. Even if you want to glam up for a night out, this doesn’t mean that you have to wear shoes that are very uncomfortable, or that you can’t really walk in. Bad shoes will make you more likely to have a slip, trip or fall accident should you encounter some lose carpet or floor tiles that have not been repaired.
    • Don’t get too drunk. Try to remember when you are out of the house that the only person that will look after you is yourself, and that if you get too drunk, you are leaving yourself open to being badly injured. If you are injured in an accident that is not your own fault, and need hospital treatment, sometimes that has to be restricted if you are drunk

    If you do suffer slips, trips and falls in Hertfordshire when on a night out with friends, you could be entitled to compensation. Whether you were enjoying your night out at the cinema, at a restaurant or maybe in a nightclub, they all have a legal duty to make sure their patrons are safe from accidents.

    Call the Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, to find out whether or not you have a good case for compensation. From there, you can decide whether you want to proceed with a claim.
