Slip, Trip and Fall injury Compensation Claims

If you have suffered an injury due to a slip or trip and you think the accident could have been avoided, you may be able to claim compensation.

The personal injury claims solicitors team here at Lanyon Bowdler have a wealth of experience helping people claim compensation in relations to slips, trips and falls.

Am I Eligible to Make a Slips and Trips Claim?

If your accident happened because of someone’s negligence, regardless of where it occurred, you could be able to claim compensation. Typical culprits for slips and trips include:

  • Spilt drink or food in supermarkets
  • Poorly signed wet floors
  • Missing drain covers
  • Cracked and uneven paving
  • Loose carpet, mats or rugs
  • Cables trailing across walkways

These kinds of accidents can happen anywhere, while you are walking down the street, shopping in a supermarket, visiting a restaurant or even just going about your daily business at work.

But wherever you are, it is your legal right to be protected from avoidable hazards like these.

Who is Responsible For My Accident?

If your accident happened in a public place, then it is usually the responsibility of the local authority or landowner to ensure that people are safe when using their land. Or if you were injured by tripping over in a shop, restaurant or supermarket, it is the responsibility of the proprietor or store manager.

But whatever the circumstances of the incident, the specialist legal experts here at Lanyon Bowdler will help you establish whether you have the basis of a claim, and will support you through every stage of the process.

Start Your Claim Today

The repercussions of a slip, trip or fall can be difficult for the family and friends of the injured party, as well as themselves. Injuries, particularly for the elderly, can be devastating and may lead to the need for care rather than being able to live independently.

Claiming financial compensation will help cover the cost of any care, rehabilitation and medical costs, as well as compensating you for the pain suffered following the incident.

We understand that embarking on a compensation claim is a daunting prospect, and even if you feel partly to blame for your accident, you could still make a claim. Our personal injury specialists are friendly and down-to-earth, and will be able to talk you through the process before you make any decisions about whether to go ahead or not.
