If you have suffered an injury from slipping, tripping or falling in a public place, you could be entitled to compensation if you were not at fault.
Slip and Trip accidents are commonly caused by defects on the ground. For example:
- When someone has failed to clean up a wet floor in a public place, it may also include icy or wet surfaces.
- In instances like uneven foot paths or paving stones, untidy wires and carpet.
These accidents can also occur in a work place. Equally, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation against your employer.
All companies owe a duty to their visitors who enter their premises to ensure they are not at risk of injury whilst visiting them. The council also has a duty to ensure that all roads and pavements are sufficiently clear and well maintained to avoid accidents.
