Claiming for an accident – the easy way

Accidents in public places

Slips, trips and falls are the most common type of accident claim. If you were injured in the street, at work, in a supermarket or a restaurant or any other public place as a result of a defect or hazardous situation, you may be entitled to compensation for personal injury and also for any financial losses that you have sustained as a result of the accident.

  • Unmarked slippery surfaces, such as wet floors
  • Poorly positioned mats in a supermarket, shop or at work
  • Trip hazards, tripping over boxes or crates left out by staff
  • A hazardous cable
  • A broken pavement or pothole

There are many causes of slip and trip accidents, the above are just a few examples.

Many slip and trip accidents occur in public places. Landlords and owners of land and property accessed by members of the public have a duty to take reasonable care for the safety of all visitors. Landlords also have a duty of care to their tenants.

Many slip and trip accidents also occur within the workplace. Your employer has a duty of care to enable you to do your job safely, this includes providing proper training and a safe working environment. It’s reassuring to know however, that if you’ve been injured in an accident at work, any compensation awarded to you would be paid by your employer’s insurance company, and not by your employer

What can I claim for?

In addition to compensation for personal injury, you may also be entitled to make a claim for loss of earnings, damaged possessions and any other expenses incurred due to the accident. Your solicitors may also be able to arrange for you to have private physiotherapy and rehabilitation treatment.

  • Any other costs and expenses incurred due to the accident
