Slipping or tripping over in public can be really embarrassing and even if you are hurt, you may just want to get up and leave to save your blushes. But what if your fall has happened because of someone else’s fault?
If this is the case you will probably be very upset and feeling let down, especially if you fell over or slipped in a public place or shop. We do understand how you are feeling, especially if your injuries are serious and have stopping you from working. We can help you to understand your legal position and to move forward.
Types of slip or trip accidents
These types of accidents may be:
• Slip on some liquid on the floor
• Trip over a mat or some loose carpet
• Trip over an uneven pavement or road
• Trip over a cable
• Slip on the floor
These are only a few examples and an accident could happen anywhere. It may happen whilst you are at work, at the supermarket or even walking down the street.
One of the key things to consider when you have suffered from a slip or a trip that has caused injury is whether there is anyone at fault for the accident. You will need to be able to show that the business owner or local authority, for example, did not do something that they were reasonably required to do to keep you and other members of the public safe.
If you are in any doubt about who was responsible for a slipping or tripping accident, you should contact us today and we will be able to advise you on whether you can make a claim for compensation or not.
