Slips, Trips and Falls

Was a slippery floor, or a bundle of loose cables, the cause of your accident? If you have been injured as a result of a slip, trip or fall that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Use our simple online claim form or give our friendly legal advisors a call and they will be able to assist you with making a no win no fee claim.

Slips, trips and falls are some of the most preventable causes of accidents. At National Accident Helpline, injuries sustained after slipping or tripping over are unfortunately one of our most common types of claim.

Making a no win no fee claim

All our claims are made on a No Win No Fee basis, meaning that if you want to claim for your slip, trip or fall, then you don’t need to worry about being out of pocket in the unlikely event that your case is unsuccessful.

Claiming for slip, trips & falls

Being involved in a slip, trip or fall is something that could happen to anyone at any time, whether it is out on the street, at the supermarket or at work. Slips, trips & falls are unexpected and sustaining an injury can put you out of action for a considerable amount of time. We’re here to help you get back on your feet; give us a call on if you want to make a no win no fee claim, or even if you just want advice on what steps to take next.

Slips and trips can occur in the workplace, for example, if health and safety guidelines are not followed and there are trailing wires or other hazards in the walkways. Likewise, if you trip over a cracked piece of pavement in the street, your local council may have failed in their duty to maintain public property leading to your injury.

What are the common causes of slips, trips & falls?

Slips, trips and falls often occur due to someone else’s negligence. If you’ve been injured through no fault of your own, you are fully within your rights to make a claim. The most common causes of trips and falls are in the workplace or in public places:

  • Supermarkets – Slips can often occur when there have been spillages and the correct warning signs are not displayed.
  • Uneven Pavement – Councils have a duty to keep public paths safe. If you have been injured after tripping on cracked, raised or unsuitable pavement that hasn’t been cordoned off, you could make a claim.
  • Workplace Hazards – Trailing wires and other hazardous objects in workplace walkways, particularly in an office environment, are a big cause of personal injuries.

There are a number of other hazards which can lead to a slip, trip or fall, so don’t hesitate to contact us today using our online claim form if you’re not sure whether you can claim.

Slips, trips & falls at work

According to the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992, employers in the UK are legally obliged to provide a working environment free from slip, trip and fall hazards.

Any employer who fails to reasonably meet this requirement is at risk of one of their employees suffering an injury, which could have been avoided. Our friendly legal advisors are on hand to give you advice if you are worried about making a claim against your employer.
