Advice and Guidance

Action Following Slipping and Tripping Accidents

Many people are injured each year in slipping and tripping accidents and these can occur in a variety of different circumstances. Here are some typical examples :-

  • Customer slipping on a dirty floor in a restaurant
  • Pedestrian injured after tripping over broken paving slab
  • Customer tripping over discarded packing material in a supermarket
  • Office worker or visitor slipping on a newly cleaned and wet office floor where there was no warning that it was damp
  • Pedestrian slipping on mud on pavement adjacent to a building site where there was an inadequate regime for cleaning
  • Visitor injured after tripping over loose or worn stair carpet in a private house

If you are injured in a fall after tripping or slipping, your claim for compensation for your injuries will normally be against the person or company responsible for the place where you tripped or slipped and that is not always the same as the person or company creating the hazard which led to your injury. Depending on the circumstances, this may be the restaurant or shop, the local authority or even a householder where you trip inside their house. In each of these examples, we would normally expect the claim to be paid by an insurance company.

To succeed in your claim for compensation for your injuries, you would have to show that your opponent had been negligent in some way.  In the vast majority of circumstances, this would be fairly clear, liability should be accepted and your claim settled quite quickly.

Where liability is not clear and not accepted, the evidence necessary to win your case will depend on the circumstanes of your accident. Accident Aid will advise you about this.

If you are unlucky enough to be injured after a slip or a trip, afer you have obtained any necessary treatment from your doctor or the local hospital, steps should be taken to obtain evidence of the thing that caused you to fall. For example, it would be necessary to take photographs and measurements of broken paving or potholes before they are repaired. Accident Aid can always assist you in arranging for vital evidence to be preseved in this way.

Call Accident Aid for any help and advice whenever you wish to claim compensation for personal injuries, damage to goods and out of pocket expenses arising out of slipping and tripping accidents.
