Slip Trip and Fall Claims
Almost every environment is susceptible to slip, trip and fall accidents, making these some of the most common forms of accidents. In some cases, injuries are caused by the negligence of another person, but can also be caused by poor conditions or a failure to abide by health and safety regulations. Accidents can lead to head injuries, back injuries, fractures and paralysis, and in extreme instances can even be fatal.

What are the main causes of slips, trips and falls?
These types of accident can occur for many reasons. However, there are a number of common hazards which can result in an accident:
- Wet and frozen surfaces
- Uneven flooring
- Unsuitable floor covering
- Low lighting
- Loose cabling
- Unsigned obstructions
It is up to those in charge to prevent these accidents from happening by ensuring all floors are suitable and free from obstruction. Also, appropriate signs must be available in case of an unexpected spillage or obstruction.
Making a claim
If you have suffered an injury at work or in a public place due to a slip, trip or fall that was caused by a person who failed to maintain a safe environment, you could be entitled to take action. The financial compensation awarded for these types of accident are intended to cover costs during your recovery, including:
- Rehabilitation charges
- Medical costs
- Loss of pay
Additional compensation can also be awarded to compensate for long-term effects of a serious accident, including psychological damages and mental distress.
