Certainly not the most uncommon of accidents, most of the time a trip can be caused by nothing else but our own clumsiness. However, on the rare occasion where you have slipped or fallen and it was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim.
A slip or trip can be caused by the negligence of others, for example, someone not moving wires from a walkway or not cleaning up a wet floor.
For example, in a public place, if wet floors and trip hazards are not marked with signs to warn the public, the occupier of the premises may be held negligent due to the risk of slips and trips that they pose.
People are sometimes led to believe that just because slips and trips are a common occurrence, they can’t really cause a serious injury. But our solicitors have dealt with cases of slips and trips that range from broken bones to serious cuts. So we understand how much a simple fall can impact on someone’s life, and if it was not your fault, why not seek compensation for the injuries you suffered through no fault of your own.
