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.

So very impressed with the professional team who looked after me throughout the last 4 and 1/2 years. A special mention to Kerry and Nathan who navigated each request to fight for my right to gain... access to further treatments and physio and to ensure medical treatment would be covered moving forward. I was so grateful I could hand it all over to you and not have to go through this very challenging time without your support.I thank you for the compassion you have provided to me, from the first contact with Matthew and Natasha, to finalisation with Kerry and Nathan.I highly recommend the team at Garling and Co for any third party compensation claims. You are in good hands with them all.read more

Emma, Rebecca and the team at Garling and Co have worked diligently throughout my workers compensation claim. The level of professionalism, support and communication has been faultless. Of particular... note has been the sensitivity displayed to me throughout the lengthy process. Worker’s compensation claims are complex and not easy to navigate, particularly when you are unwell. I do not hesitate to recommend Garling and Co to help you find a way through this otherwise unfathomable system.read more

We got the win last week and it was the best news I have gotten considering how much my life has... been turned upside down the past 2 years. Emma and Rebecca have been incredible to work with and explained everything from the start even when I had hesitation to go ahead regarding how much everything would cost or how fair it could go or even if I had a chance, but they explained everything thoroughly, so I understood it all. Thank you for making this process seamlessly easy and helping me get the win it will make things a little easy for me that's for sure financial thank you for all your help I cannot recommend you and your services enough. Thank you again.read more

Have had a rollercoaster ride with Garling and Co over the several years we have been battling the system that injured workers are faced with. The wheels of progress are slow within this system.... However Garling and co have always stood by me. Calls are returned and matters are always followed up in a timely manner.read more
