Slip, Trip & Fall Claim
We have specialist Personal Injury Solicitors in England & Wales that deal with slip, trip and fall compensation claims on almost a daily basis; because these are one of the most common types of accident claims in the UK.
Alpha Claims & Hire can provide immediate legal representation and rehabilitation support nationwide.
You are entitled to claim compensation for the pain and suffering that you endured, for expenses, lost pay and for the costs of your rehabilitation, treatments and the rehabilitation equipment needed to recover from your injuries.
Slip, Trip & Fall at Work / Fall From Height Accident Claims
Slip, trip or fall accidents at work are often caused by a breach of Health & Safety regulations, or something as simple as another employee spilling water (or another liquid) on the floor.
Although many slipping and tripping accidents cause minor injuries, others, such as falling off a ladder, or falling from height can cause broken bones and serious injuries requiring long-term rehabilitation.
You can claim compensation regardless of your employment status at the time of the accident.
It makes no difference if you were a full/part time employee, a temporary worker, working directly for the employer or through a temp agency; or if you were just visiting when you slipped and tripped over.
Employers are required to have Employers’ Liability Insurance to protect workers from accidents; so the compensation is almost always paid by an insurance company; and not by the employer. Employers are not permitted to treat an employee unfairly or to terminate an employee because they claimed compensation for a slip, trip and fall accident.
Slip, Trips & Falls in Supermarkets & Shops
Laws exist to ensure that public and private organisations protect their visitors from falling accidents.
Recent slip, trip and fall claims that our Personal Injury Lawyers have won include, compensation for a man who slipped on ice outside a supermarket, compensation for a woman who slipped on some spilt water inside her local supermarket; compensation for a woman that tripped and fell over a raised piece of flooring; and for an employee working in a logistics warehouse after he slipped on a tomato which had been dropped earlier by another employee.
Slips, Trips & Falls on Roads & Pavements
Local highway authorities have responsibility for maintaining local roads and pavements. Just because you trip up in the street or slip on a pavement does not mean you are automatically entitled to compensation. This is because the law accepts roads and pavements cannot be 100 per cent perfect. But if someone else was at fault for your injury, then you can certainly claim for compensation.
Just provide the details about the accident and about your injuries. Then a Personal Injury Solicitor will review your claim on a No Win No Fee basis; and we can tell you how successful your claim is expected to be. Call us now and we’ll be happy to help you.
