Claiming for Slips, Trips and Falls

Injuries due to slips, trips and falls are very common, and can result in anything from soft tissue injuries to severe fractures and even permanent disability.

Many accidents occur as a result of slipping on substances such as ice, snow, water, sand, grit, oil, gravel, diesel and debris. The consequences can be anything from minor bruising to serious fractures to limbs. If you have experienced injury from a slip, trip or fall then call our team today.

Our solicitors are dedicated and highly specialised in serious personal injury claims and will discuss your claim with empathy and in a professional manner. In your free initial consultation, we will discuss the strength of your potential claim and your options.

Legal Responsibility for Slips, Trips and Falls

If your slip or fall injury occurred through the fault of another party then you may have a claim for damages to compensate you for your injuries.

Legal responsibility for slips, trips and falls depends on where the accident took place and therefore obtaining advice is crucial. We will carry out the necessary investigations into who was responsible for the land at the time of your accident, regardless of whether your accident took place at work, a shop, or a public place.

If health and safety legislation has been breached, the local authority and Health and Safety Executive may investigate and even prosecute. this can assist any civil claim you may choose to pursue.

Slip and Trip Hazards

Numerous slip and trip hazards can result in successful claims, including:

  • An unexpected obstruction
  • Cables and hoses
  • Faulty, damaged and uneven flooring, pathways and stairs
  • Potholes
  • Missing or damaged grids, drain covers, utility access covers and handrails

Common Fall Hazards

While injuries due to falls are less common than injuries caused by slips and trips, falls are often most serious with some causing life-changing injuries or even fatalities. Common causes of falls include:

  • Adverse weather
  • Defective equipment
  • Disregard for the correct safety measures
  • Failure to supply or use the necessary safety equipment
  • Inadequate training and supervision

If you have fallen at work, your personal injury solicitor will consider whether the Work at Height Regulations were followed by your employer.

Strengthening Your Claim

To maximise your chances of winning your slip, trip or fall claim you should:

  • Take a photo as soon as possible and before any hazard has been cleared away or damage fixed. If possible, at the scene, use a coin or bank card as a rough measuring guide displayed in the photo to show perspective, or revisit again with a ruler  
  • Take details from any witnesses and those aware of defects in the area, such as people living locally
  • Keep any receipts for out-of-pocket expenses

Your Compensation

The amount of compensation payable depends upon your injuries. With a proven track record in successful slip, trip and fall compensation claims, our team will advise on compensation to cover your:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Current and future loss of earnings
  • Existing and future private healthcare costs
  • Mobility aids

Excellent service and very professional

I contacted Macks Solicitors for advice on an Employment matter and I was initially put through to Len Mann. He has supported me right throughout my claim from that initial phone call to a satisfactory end result. He has been very responsive to my emails and phone calls. Explained everything to me clearly. He showed professionalism, expertise and patience and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of this kind of help. His Secretary Chloe was also very helpful and kind and the Receptionists who answered the phone also put me at ease every time I made contact. Excellent firm and excellent service, thank you Len.

Client Testimonials

Two departments one fantastic service

Frank, could I just take a moment to thank you for everything you and Jayne have done. Throughout the whole experience, I was guided by yourself and on occasions, it became quite complicated with my situation however I must express how professional you are and how well you navigated and negotiated the final outcome. Also, Jayne was always a pleasure to speak with and again professional and communicative at every stage.  Without a doubt the best Solicitors practice I have ever dealt with the results Macks Solicitors get, speak for themselves.

A positive outcome in a complex case

Rebecca Montague Dealt with my claim and right from our first conversation she made me feel confident that she would do her best for me. Rebecca was genuinely interested to find out how I actually felt about each stage of the case and I was involved from start to finish. If Rebecca was off any query I had would be dealt with by her colleague or secretary. I have had an extremely positive relationship with this firm and was lucky in that I had a positive outcome in a complex case but this is not the reason I rate this firm a 5. I can only speak from experience and so Rebecca and her team get a 5 because it was always about me and they didn’t give up when things got difficult. Thank you I would have no hesitation in using your firm again.
