Slipping And Tripping Accident Claims

Whether you trip or slip on the street or at work claim, the results can be embarrassing, painful and debilitating.

Injuries can range from serious wrist fractures as the victim tries to break their fall to spinal trauma or brain injury. The type of injury received can depend on a variety of factors and each case needs to be taken on its own merits.

What types of slip and trip claims can we help you with?

Wherever you are when it happens, if you have slipped on or tripped over on an item which should not have been there, more likely than not it would not have happened if the person responsible had taken proper precautions.

1stClaims solicitors have many years experience of dealing with slip and trip claims, including:

What to do

If you are hurt in a slip and fall accident, there are several things you should do to protect your rights and help make sure you can recover what you are entitled to receive under the law. They include making written notes on the accident; getting the names, addresses and phone numbers of all witnesses and save any evidence such as whatever caused the fall. A good way to record this is to take detailed photographs of the scene at the time. Try and include a newspaper to scale and date the accident.

Report the accident to employees of the business, but do not feel pressured to say anything or give a statement before talking to your lawyer. You are not legally obliged to give a statement to a shop employee or anyone connected to the business. At the end of the day, you do not want to find that you have said something that might damage your case; the advice of a lawyer is invaluable in these situations.

While there are many factors that make falls more likely such as adverse weather conditions, it does not remove the burden of responsibility on the property owner if the property is used by members of the public or employees.
