    Trips and slips injury claims


    Personal injuries can take on many forms, including road traffic accidents, medical negligence, and accidents at work. One of the most common accident types whilst out and about are slips, trips and falls often resulting in head, back and neck injuries or perhaps broken bones, strains and sprains. Whatever your personal circumstance, it is useful to understand how trips and slips injury claims work enabling you to claim for compensation with ease and minimum fuss.

    How to make trips and slips injury claims

    To be able to make trips and slips injury claims, you must firstly check your eligibility for compensation. To be considered eligible, your accident must have been caused by another person or organisation, have happened within the past three years and have resulted in the need for medical attention, perhaps a visit to your local GP or even to Accident and Emergency.

    To double check, you can use an online tool such as Accident Advice Helpline’s 30-second calculator. If you are entitled to compensation, this will also return an approximate settlement figure dependent on the severity of your injuries. Although this is only an estimation, it can be a useful way to get an initial idea of how much you may be able to claim.

    Trips and slips injury claims can cover a whole range of accidents, perhaps including:

    • A trip on broken pavement
    • A fall down a stairway
    • A slip on wet flooring in a restaurant
    • A fall on a snowy pathway

    Whatever your accident type, if someone else was to blame then you should pursue your right to compensation. Trips and slips injury claims can result from employer negligence for example – perhaps failing to ensure the pathways into work or the corridors in your office are safe. Alternatively, they may occur due to the failure of your local council to maintain surfaces such as in the case of a trip on broken pavement.
