Common Slips, Trips and Falls Questions

Private property can be defined as a shop, supermarket, gym, or anything owned by someone else. The owner of the property is responsible for your health and safety during the time you are there. If you sustain an injury during this time then you may be able to make a claim against them.

Usually you would not be able to claim if you were trespassing on someone else’s land. However, there are exceptions to this rule. If, for example, children play in an old, abandoned building, it could be argued that this could’ve been anticipated, and therefore if one of the children sustains an injury they could be eligible for compensation.

If you’ve slipped in the supermarket, whether on water or food, you may be able to get compensation, particularly if there was no sign indicating the hazard.

It might not be your fault, but you might be liable for the injury. For example, if you slip in a supermarket but there was a sign, it could be argued that the supermarket took reasonable steps to make sure you didn’t have an accident. Therefore you may not be eligible to make a claim. It is difficult to say definitively without speaking to you about the circumstances of the accident, so pick up the phone to talk to us now!

Yes. If you tripped on an uneven paving slab, or a hole in the ground that should clearly have been marked, you may be able to get compensation.

Signs should be visible in the dark if there is a potential hazard, therefore you may be eligible for compensation.

It is likely that you can still claim, but difficult to say without knowing the circumstances of the accident. For example, if you were wearing high heels and there was water on the floor that caused you to slip, one would have to weigh up whether you would have slipped if there hadn’t been water on the floor. The best way to find out is to call us and tell us the details.

The aim of winning a trip and slip claim is to put you back in the position you were in before the accident occurred. You will usually receive a lump sum in additional to any medical costs, transport costs (such as to and from the hospital) and loss of earnings due to any time off work that you may have incurred during the recovery period.

As each claim is different, it is impossible to say until we’ve assessed your claim. Once we have done this we may be able to give you an estimate of how long it will take.

While you may have suffered physically, we will make sure you don’t suffer financially. If your tripping or slipping accident claim is not successful, we won’t charge you a penny.
