Trips, Slips and Falls Claims
Compensation for Injuries Suffered from Trips, Slips and Falls
Slips and Trips are a common occurrence in daily life. One of the most obvious reasons people fall over is because they slip/trip over an obstacle or defect with the floor surface.
All occupiers of land are obliged to take all reasonable care for visitors to their premises under the Occupiers Liability Act in negligence generally and under the Defective Premises Act. These Acts are separate to trips, slips and falls in the workplace following an accident at work but they can work alongside each other as appropriate.
Whether you are visiting a shop, a place of work or even on the public highway including pavements, you may suffer a trip, slip or fall resulting from an obstacle or defect on the floor surface.
Indeed, you might be an employee who has had a trip, slip or fall accident at work. In these cases, employers’ Regulations will also apply.
At Porters Solicitors, we have years of experience of dealing with accident compensation claims for trips, slips and falls.
In the past, some of the Solicitors at Porters Solicitors have advised some of the world’s largest companies in cases of accidents involving tips, slips and falls whilst working at some of Europe’s largest law firms, so it’s fair to say that we know what we’re talking about in this when it comes to personal injury claims following a trip, slip or fall and for personal injury claims generally.
We can instruct an appropriate expert to assess you and to confirm your personal injury where appropriate.
If you are considering putting forward a claim for an accident involving a trip, slip or fall and wish to speak to a lawyer about a personal injury claim, please contact us as detailed below.
We can help
We can help people who find themselves in these situations as well as many other related situations.
We work with experts who specialise in identifying and confirming such negligence and/or breach of duty and whose evidence will assist in the outcome of your claim.
Where there has been a loss we can pursue your claim through negotiation, mediation and failing these, through the Court or Tribunal system.
What to do next
The first thing to do is to contact us.
Where available we seek to invoke legal expenses insurance that a lot of people have but not a lot of people realise they have.
When you contact us we will do all the work with regard to identifying whether you have it and we will also deal directly with the insurer, which means that you can sit back and as much as possible, relax.
There are some situations in which this may not be available and wherever viable we may be able to deal with a case on a no win no fee basis. You will be provided with all material you need in relation to a no win no fee agreement should that be necessary.
We have a friendly and dedicated team and we are waiting for your call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on 0151 489 9900 (Liverpool) or 01782 20 60 20 (Stoke on Trent).
