Pensioner who tripped on uncovered drainage hole awarded £5,000
Am I Eligible to Make a Slips and Trips Claim?
Wherever your slip or trip accident occurred, if it was a result of another individual's negligence you may be eligible to make a claim. Slips and trips often occur as a result of:
- improperly signed wet floors;
- spilt food and drink in supermarkets;
- cracked and uneven paving;
- missing drain covers;
- cables trailing across walkways;
- loose carpet, rugs and mats;
Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere; as a pedestrian on the street, at work or in a restaurant or supermarket. Wherever you are, you have a right to be protected from unnecessary hazards such as those listed above.
Who Is Responsible for My Accident?
Accidents which occur in public places tend to be the responsibility of the local council or land owner, both of whom have a duty to ensure the safety of pedestrians and other individuals who may be using their land.
Alternatively, you may have slipped on a wet floor or a greasy surface, or tripped over in a supermarket, restaurant or shop and suffered an injury. In these situations, the store manager or proprietor of the establishment in which the accident occurred is responsible.
The slips and trips accident claims experts at Lanyon Bowdler can help you identify the company or individual responsible for your injury, and assist you in bringing a subsequent claim for financial compensation.
