Accident Claims – Slip and Trip Injury Compensations

If you are injured tripping on a pavement or road in a poor state of repair or in a shop slipping on a wet floor, or on produce which has not been cleared up, then you may be entitled to compensation. There is a set window generally three years in which to make your claim for compensation, otherwise your right to claim could be lost forever.

We are legal experts in accident claims and we understand the different considerations in each case, no matter how long ago the accident happened or where. Each case involves different legal and practical advice and our lawyers always give their initial consultation for free.

Expert Accident Injury Solicitors

It is a sign of our expertise that we take on the most difficult cases as well as the straightforward ones.

We help you with all aspects of your accident claim, including:

  • Who you need to claim against – the highway authority, a local council, a private landowner, perhaps a tenant, or a shop – it is often far from straightforward identifying the correct Defendant.
  • How long has the hazard been there, and what evidence can be found to prove it. Highway authorities usually say that they regularly inspect and that the defect wasn’t there on their recent inspection. We help you prove them wrong.
  • Is the defect bad enough - for example a pavement trip usually needs to be at least an inch high or deep. We show you how to measure and photograph a hazard to add strength to your evidence.
  • Contributory negligence – you may face allegations that you were wholly or partly to blame by not looking where you were going. Often there is no merit in these arguments and we can help you overcome them.
