A slip, trip or fall can happen anytime, anywhere, and it isn’t always crystal clear as to who (if anyone) should be held accountable. If your fall occurred because of an uneven pavement, raised kerb, or pothole, is the council responsible, or a sub-contractor charged with highway maintenance? Accidents at work are no less common, yet the fault is usually easier to pinpoint, especially as maintenance and cleaning staff are usually assigned to outlined areas.
If you have had a slip, trip or fall caused by poor maintenance/ negligible upkeep, our personal injury solicitors could help prove your case. With extensive experience of slip trip claims, they are the UK’s trusted resource for advice and guidance, offered on a comprehensive no win, no fee basis.
Contact us today for advice on making a no win, no fee injury claim. We guarantee your claim will be dealt with in complete confidence, and if successful, will ensure you receive the total amount of compensation, with no deductions.
Slips, Trips And Falls In The Workplace
Workplace slips, trips and falls are commonly caused by spillages, poorly maintained flooring and tripping hazards, such as cables or discarded boxes. While many people escape such incidents relatively unscathed, a small proportion go on to develop post accident trauma. Symptoms can be long and short term, ranging from mild concussion and swelling, through to immobility and brain damage.
Our personal injury lawyers are specialists in the field of slip trip claims, seeking compensation directly from the insurance company of your employer, whom by law, must have adequate liability insurance to cover workplace accidents. Although it isn’t mandatory, it may help your claim if you are able to supply accompanying details, such as:
- Photographs of the tripping hazard/ spillage/ damaged surface.
- Witness details, such as a name and telephone number.
- Whether your company operate CCTV within the area you were injured.
- A copy of your work accident report.
Even if you cannot supply evidence in support of your claim, we can still help. Contact one of our slip trip claims specialists today to find out if you qualify!
