Slip & Trip Accident Claims

Slip and trip claims are among the most common in the UK. If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall, we could help you get compensation. We have a proven track record when it comes to dealing with slip and trip claims for trips, slips and falls in Council or publicly owned property .Some of the most common circumstances that lead to a trip, slip or fall includes wet floors, cracked or uneven pavements, potholes, poor or inadequate lighting, ice, snow and obstacles that are out of place or unexpected.

We have dealt with slip and trip claims for a whole range of different situations and locations, whether it happens in your local supermarket or at a sporting or music event venue.Common injuries can include fractures, strains, knee injuries and scarring. In extreme circumstances an accident can lead to death or permanent disablement.

Types of Slips, Trips or Falls

Pot Hole

Pot hole such as the one in the above pictures can cause a lot of harm and in a lot of ways. For example a car driving at speed can lose total control after going over one of these – if there is standing water you may not even see it coming. A pedestrian could be crossing the road and trip over it – this could leave to even further danger if the fall leads to not being able to move and then a vehicle comes the other way. If you’ve been affected by an injury caused by a pot hole we can help you get the compensation you deserve.

Uneven Pavement

An uneven pavement such as above can cause serious harm, much like a pot hole. Uneven pavement can catch people out especially on a busy street when upcoming dangers can not be seen. Falls to children and the elderly are a particular risk. If you have slipped on an uneven pavement and injured yourself you could be due compensation.

A Fall

Falling depending on the height an velocity can be painful and can cause a lot of injury. An example of a type of fall is on ice, a hidden dip, an uncovered hole and so on. Should you fall and it wasn’t your fault you could be due compensation for your injury and rehabilitation.

Poor Lighting

An area with poor lighting can be a danger as you aren’t as capable of seeing dangers coming – such as a slip, trip or fall. Have you been in a public area with poor lighting and suffered an accident that wasn’t your fault?
