Slip Trip & Fall Injury

Slip Trip & Fall Injury

Injuries can occur as a result of a slip, trip and fall anywhere be it at work or in a public place. They are often caused by a breach of Health & Safety regulations, or something very simple such as spilt liquids on the floor. 

Although many slipping and tripping accidents cause minor injuries, others, such as falling off a ladder, or falling from height can cause broken bones and serious injuries requiring long-term rehabilitation.

Injury claim specialists Claims Direct deal with slip, trip and fall claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

If you slipped, tripped or fell injuring yourself in an accident that was not your fault, we can help. Call Claims Direct for a free consultation on freephone {{freephoneNumber}} or start your claim online.

You can claim compensation regardless of your employment status at the time of the accident.

It makes no difference if you were a full/part time employee, a temporary worker, working directly for the employer or through a temp agency; or if you were just visiting when you slipped and tripped over.

Employers are required to have Employers’ Liability Insurance to protect workers from accidents; so the compensation is almost always paid by an insurance company; and not by the employer. Employers are not permitted by law to treat an employee unfairly or to terminate an employee because they claimed compensation for a slip, trip and fall accident.

Claiming for Slips, Trips & Falls in Supermarkets & Shops

Laws exist to ensure that public and private organisations protect their visitors from falling accidents.

Recent cases we have dealt with for clients include:

  1. Compensation for a man who was injured as he slipped on ice outside a supermarket
  2. Compensation for a woman who slipped on some spilt water inside her local supermarket and broke her leg
  3. We successfully help a woman that tripped and fell over a raised piece of flooring and was injured as a result
  4. We helped an employee working in a logistics warehouse get compensation after he slipped on a spilt produce which had been dropped earlier by another employee and was injured.

Slips, Trips & Falls on Roads & Pavements

Local highway authorities have responsibility for maintaining local roads and pavements. Just because you trip up in the street or slip on a pavement does not mean you are automatically entitled to compensation. This is because the law accepts roads and pavements cannot be 100% perfect. But if someone else was at fault for your injury, then you can certainly speak to one of our lawters about claiming for compensation.
