If you have been injured after slipping or tripping in circumstances that weren’t your fault you should immediately contact personal injury solicitors with experience in this area.
Often claims in this manner can involve legal intricacies, so to stand the best chance of securing the compensation you deserve it’s vital you seek the help of expert solicitors.
For your claim to be successful, it will need to be proven that someone was at fault for your injuries. For example, if you slip on a wet surface in a supermarket, there will only be liability on the part of the supermarket if there was no sign. If there was a sign it would be assumed that a reasonable person would not walk there, or would take more care.
In relation to a claim against a local authority following a trip on a paving slab or pothole, for the claim to be successful it would need to be proven that the stone was sticking up by an inch or the hole was the same depth.
If for example, a floor is wet, or a paving stone dangerously uneven, there will only be a liability if those circumstances have existed for a period of time beyond which warning signs should have been placed, or the problem rectified.
