At some point in time we have all slipped and fallen – whether caused by a slippery floor, an unseen obstruction or an uneven walkway.
Whilst Most us will just suffer embarrassment. Sadly thousands of people unfortunately will suffer personal injuries often serious injuries.
If you or a family member have been hurt in a slip, trip or fall caused, for example, by a badly maintained footpath or a spillage – whether in or out of work, perhaps in a shop or even on holiday – You may be entitled to claim compensation.
Your local council is responsible for keeping public pavements, steps and walkways safe.
Businesses such as shops, supermarkets, pubs and restaurants also have a responsibility to keep you safe from slips and trips. They must signpost wet floors, keep walkways or aisles clear and clean up spillages as quickly as possible if these institutions have failed in their duty of care to you then we are here to help.
