Accidents arising from slips, trips and falls are often perceived as trivial, and an example of the “compensation culture.”
In reality, a high proportion of such accidents involve serious injury. Health and safety executives estimate that 95% of major slips result in broken bones.
All public and private organisations owe a duty of care to ensure all visitors to premises are safe. Local Authorities are also under a duty to ensure that pavements and public highways are in a safe condition for public use.
Examples of slips, trips and falls claims that have been successfully pursued include those where people have:
