Have you Suffered a Slip, Trip or Fall?

Slips, trips, and falls are one of the most frequent types of injury claims. You may have slipped on a spillage that hadn’t been cleared up, tripped on an uneven pavement or fallen over an obstacle that wasn’t clearly signposted.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a slip, trip or fall and you can prove that the owner of the property was at fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

At What’s My Claim Worth we have lots of experience in dealing with slip, trip, and fall claims. Our specialist personal injury lawyers understand how daunting it can be to make a claim when you have suffered an injury, which is why they’re on-hand to offer you unrivaled legal advice and fight for the slip injury compensation you deserve.

Types of Slips, Trips, and Falls

Whether it’s at work or in a public place, slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere, at any time. Some common examples include:

  • Slipping on a spillage at the supermarket
  • Slipping on a wet floor that wasn’t properly signposted
  • Tripped on an uneven or broken pavement

Injuries sustained from a trip, slip or falling accident can range from a sprained ankle to back injury. However, it can also cause something much more serious, such as a head injury or fracture with long-term damage. If you have fallen in a public place, such as a train station, car park or school playground you may be able to claim compensation for your injury.

How much Compensation would I get for a Trip or Fall?

Our specialist personal injury lawyers have handled all kinds of slip, trip and fall claims. One recent example involved a client who was attending a Christmas party.

Our client slipped on a drink that had been spilled on the floor and had not been cleaned up. She instinctively put out her arm to break her fall, fracturing her wrist in the process.

Her employer admitted liability for her accident, but wanted to reduce any damages by 20% to represent contributory negligence, on the basis that our client was under the influence of alcohol and therefore not entirely in control of her movements and failing to:

  • Have any regard for her own safety
  • Take any adequate care in looking where she was going
  • Make adequate observation of her surroundings
  • Have due regard for the presence of spillages
  • Place her feet carefully

However, this argument was not accepted and our client received damages for £5,900.
