The perception of Slips, Trips and falls in Society

Slips and trips are often considered by society as something that has fueled the so called compensation culture but in reality the number of people that suffer badly as a result of these accidents is high. In fact it has been said by leading health officials that in 95% of serious slip situations, the person sustains broken bones.

We’re not too concerned with the way it is perceived in society. In fact for us, it doesn’t even come into it. What we do care about hugely is getting those people who have suffered from a slip or trip, on the road to recovery and back to their normal life with the compensation they are due. We obviously make money from the claim if it is successful but the liable party covers these costs. See our occupiers liability page for more details of this.

Causes of Slips and Trips where we have claimed successfully for our clients

Slips and Trips at Work

If you have had a slip or trip at work, firstly, do not worry.  We spend a large proportion of our time at work and as the old saying goes “accidents happen”. If you have seriously injured yourself then it is fair that you should claim against your employers’ insurance policy

Think about it this way. You pay for insurance for your home contents – if something breaks or is lost then you claim on your policy for it. The same is true for your employer – that is why your employer is legally required to have insurance, so that things like slip and trip claims are covered.

Slips and Falls Outside of Work

People trip over everywhere. In the UK alone there are over 62million people, the majority of which are all walking around the streets and supermarkets as part of their everyday life. Ensuring these environments are kept clean and safe is imperative to the well being of everyone.

Pavement Accidents

You may have suffered a trip injury as a result of a pothole or a raised paving stone. In either case, there is no point in making a claim unless the relative raise or drop of a defective pavement is less than one inch. So if a pot hole is an inch or deeper or a paving stone is an inch or more out of line then there are possibly grounds for a claim if you have injured yourself. If the defects are any smaller than this then there are not really any grounds to claim. For more details on liability pertaining to public claims for compensation, please visit this page.

Supermarket Accidents

Slipping hazards are commonplace in many shops today whether caused by the employees or the people that shop there. Most supermarkets today have very efficient processes in place for dealing with spillages so as to ward off any potential for claims against them but they do still happen and people do still get injured.

Smaller shops tend not to have such efficient processes in place, which can make their environment a hazardous place to shop.

In a similar vein trip hazards are commonplace and again, shops need to have a safe and efficient method of getting products off the floor and onto the shelves.

The Upshot

Slips and Trips can very often be avoided so it pays to be vigilant when walking the streets, supermarkets or anywhere else for that matter. If you find yourself injured from such an incident then there are typically insurances in place that should be utilised to ensure you do not lose out financially or suffer. Check our why claim section for more details.
