We have the right to expect that any public place, or even a private building or home, should be safe from slippery or defective surfaces.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of slipping, tripping or falling in a shop, work-place or even walking down the street, you may be able to claim compensation if the accident was not your fault.
Common examples include:
- Claims against a local authority responsible for the maintenance of public roads and pavements – broken paving slabs, uneven ground or objects protruding from the surface.
- Accidents at work – slipping on a liquid or substance which should not have been there, falling over an obstruction in a walkway, or tripping on an uneven surface. Even if the accident was due to a fellow employee, your employer can still be held responsible. Your employer is responsible for the actions of their employees and for ensuring that they follow proper health and safety procedures to keep the workplace free from hazards.
- Accidents in public places – you may also be able to claim if you are in a supermarket, restaurant or a shop and you slip on a wet surface or trip over an obstruction.
We are vastly experienced in acting in these types of claim and can support you through the process involved.
