Slip & Trip Injuries
Tripping on uneven paving or road surfaces and slipping on unclean floors are some of the most common accidents. Although many slip and trip injuries are minor, some can be serious and have long-term effects.
What is a slip or trip?
These accidents can happen anywhere at any time, including in a public place, out shopping, while in a pub, restaurant or other leisure facility or in school, college or hospital. It may be tripping on broken paving stone in the street, or slipping on oil spilt on the floor of your local garage.
If your personal injury was caused by poor maintenance or health and safety, Claims Direct will be able to help. Make sure you take a photograph of the place where your accident happened as we will need this to make your claim.
Who is responsible?
Local highways authorities have responsibility for looking after your local roads and pavements. And there are laws to ensure public and private organisations protect their visitors from slips and trips.
Just because you trip up in the street does not mean you are automatically entitled to compensation. This is because the law accepts roads and pavements can’t be 100 per cent perfect. But if someone else was at fault, you may be able to claim compensation.
