Slip, trip and fall claims

Slip, trip and fall accidents can happen almost anywhere, to anyone and often cause nothing more than a slight knock or bump. However in some cases, especially on slippery surfaces, the injuries can be far more severe.

If you have suffered a substantial injury from a slip, trip or fall and believe it was caused due to the negligence of another party, you are able to seek compensation. YouClaim can help you claim against the individual or company responsible and will ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. Call 0800 10 757 95, fill out an online enquiry form or chat with us online to start your claim now.

Common slips and trips

A slip, trip or fall is actually the most common type of accident – especially at work. YouClaim has experience in representing all types of individuals who have been injured after a fall, including:

  • Accidents at work; your employer has a legal duty to care for your health and safety whilst at work.
  • Accidents on roads and pavements; your local council have a legal duty to maintain the roads and pavements to a reasonable standard.
  • Accidents in shops/supermarkets; shopkeepers have a legal duty to ensure the safety of their customers whilst they are on their premises, including the car park.
  • Accidents in public public places; places that are accessible to the public are also covered by laws to protect people from injury.

An expert solicitor can help determine who is liable and help you achieve the optimum outcome for you and your family. The YouClaim team are specialists in personal injury law and are members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel, meaning you can guarantee our expertise and professionalism in each and every case.
