Tripping and Slipping

If you have been injured as a result of a trip, slip or fall you may be entitled to compensation.

Owners and occupiers of premises owe a duty of care to all visitors to those premises to ensure the visitors’ safety. Often the owner or occupier breaches this duty and this results in a visitor being injured. Local Councils are also under a duty to keep the roads and pavements free from significant defects, and where possible free from snow and ice, that may pose a risk of injury to those using them. This is an onerous duty as it involves the Council undertaking regular inspections of the highway and carrying out prompt repairs. Potholes and uneven surfaces often exist for significant periods before repair and are the cause of many injuries.

We handle a large volume of tripping and slipping claims and the following are examples of the common types dealt with:

  • Injuries caused by tripping on raised paving or potholes in the pavement or road
  • Injuries caused by slipping or tripping on wet floors, debris or uneven surfaces in supermarkets, shops and restaurants
  • Injuries to cyclists, motorcyclists and motorists caused by potholes in the road
  • Injuries suffered by pedestrians falling into excavated areas or missing utility covers
  • Injuries caused by slipping on ice
  • Injuries caused by slipping or tripping at work
