What We Need From You
Slips and trips can happen because businesses and local councils didn’t take the appropriate safety measure to keep you and other people safe. To establish the facts of your slip trip case, our solicitor will need to know:
- The date of the accident – where and how it occurred
- The contact details for any witnesses
- The details of your injuries and medical treatment received
- If you are a member of a trade union or you have insurance policies, which may pay some of your legal costs for you.
When a slip, trip or fall occurs at work, in a shop, a restaurant or another place of business it should be noted that the owner should keep an accident report book on the premises. You should always ask to record the details of your accident. In certain other categories of slips, trips and falls accidents, the proprietor responsible for maintaining the accident report book may be obligated to report your mishap to the Health and Safety Authority (HSA).
Having this record of injury will also help you to secure the best compensation that you deserve and make your claim for compensation more powerful. Subsequently, it will be wise of you to keep any relevant documents such as receipts of medical treatment or any written paperwork for subsequent time off from work and lose out on earnings.
How Much Compensation Can I Receive for A Slip Or Trip Claim?
Broadly speaking, slip trip compensation is usually based on various factors such as the kind of injury you sustained and the amount of recovery time that you may need. If you have sustained other losses because of a slip trip accident such as loss of income or paying for medical expenses, then these can also be recovered with a successful claim.
Subsequently, the amount of compensation received in all slip trip claims is also reliant on the relevant proof and evidence that are available to the solicitor such as witnesses who could provide testimonies of the incident. Moreover, you should ensure that you keep all receipts and documentation close to you so that any kind of losses to your personal or professional life can be proven. These evidences will surely help our best solicitors to make the case strong and secure the best compensation for you.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Slip Or Trip Claim
In the UK, the standard time limit within which a slip and trip accident claim can be filed is 3 years. If legal proceedings are not started within 3 years, the case is considered time barred and you are no longer entitled to claim for compensation. The 3-year deadline starts either from the date that the accident happened or from the date when it was established that your injury was directly/indirectly linked to the original accident, which is also known as ‘date of knowledge’.
The best recommendation is always to start thinking about making slip trip compensation claims as soon as after the actual incident takes place. Events will still be fresh in your mind, evidences are easier to collect and a stronger compensation case more likely to be built.
