Slip and Fall Compensation

What is a slip and fall claim?

A “slip and fall” is a term used to describe an injury where someone slips and falls on a spill or food substance on the ground whilst on the premises of a business or home.

What types of accidents can I make a slip and fall compensation claim for?

We could help you make a claim if you’ve suffered an injury in a range of circumstances, including:

  • Tripping on an uneven pavement
  • Slipping because a spill has not been cleaned up
  • Falling downstairs because of defective handrails or uneven surfaces
  • Falling from a raised height, such as a ramp or walkway.

Who is responsible for my accident?

If you’re in a public place, it is the responsibility of the owner to make sure it is safe.

If you’ve suffered an injury following a slip, trip or fall you may be able to claim compensation from the organisation responsible. Commonly this would be a:

  • Council or local authority
  • Private business
  • Supermarket or shopping centre
  • School.

How to file a slip and fall claim

You can make a claim under the public liability insurance of the owner of the premises only if the fall:

  • Was due to the failure of the owner of the premises to take reasonable care for your safety whilst on the premises; and
  • You have sustained injury as a result of the fall.

Just because you have slipped and fell does not entitle you to compensation automatically.

You must be able to prove that the cause of your fall was as a result of the failure of the owner of the premises to ensure your safety whilst on the premises.

Can I Make A No Win No Fee Slip, Trip Or Fall Claim?

Most of the slip, trip and fall claims we handle are on a no win no fee basis. This means that there’s nothing to pay upfront, and nothing to pay if your case is unsuccessful.*

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Slip, Trip & Fall Injury?

There’s no set amount of compensation for an injury caused by a slip, trip or fall. The reason for this is because it really depends on how the injury has impacted your life.

Two people can have an identical injury but be affected differently. For example, a person who has a job involving manual work may not be able to return as quickly as an office worker.

Our lawyers have years of experience and will help you claim the maximum compensation available for your injuries.
