Have you had a slip, trip or fall accident that caused you injury? Whether it happened at work or when you were out and about, you could claim compensation.
Slips, trips and falls: The basics
A slip, trip or fall accident that causes you injury may be eligible for compensation, because someone else’s negligent behaviour or failure to do something to prevent your accident could be the cause.
Such an accident at work may result from an exposed wire, for example, or maybe a wet floor that has recently been cleaned, but there is no sign to warn you of the hazard.
In a public place, similar incidents may occur, or you might get injured in a fall on an icy patch on a path that hasn’t been gritted, even though it is the middle of winter and freezing weather is expected.
Solicitors can take on your case if any of the above accidents happen to you – and of course, this isn’t an exhaustive list! No two accidents are the same, so don’t be afraid to explore the possibility of claiming compensation.
Are you eligible?
Eligibility hinges on two elements: was the accident someone else’s fault, and did it cause you personal injury? If so, you can claim. If you’re not sure, try our 30-second test, which is available here on our website. This will give you your answer, as well as an estimate of the sum of money you might receive if your claim is successful.
Alternatively, just call Accident Advice Helpline straight away.
