We spend a lot of time walking around and with new technology counting our steps, the pressure is on to get fit and healthy. Unfortunately, there are often hazards on the floor which we don’t expect to be there which can cause us to trip or slip and suffer a personal injury.

Trips usually occur when the flooring is defective, such as a raised kerb, pothole or uneven flooring. Trips can also be caused by items negligently being left on the floor.

Slips usually occur due to water or liquids on the floor, which is normally caused by inadequate cleaning. In some cases, the floor has been cleaned, but no wet floor signs are present to warn of the danger.

It is important that you report your accident as soon as possible to ensure the Defendant has a record of this. Take photographs of what caused you to fall and seek medical advice from your GP or local hospital.

If you are unsure who is responsible for the accident get advice from experts as soon as possible so they can advise you on how to proceed. We have years of experience helping clients following trips and slips and could help you successfully make a claim.

Making a claim can be distressing time, which is why we handle construction site claims on a No win, No Fee basis. This means that if your claim is not successful, you will have nothing to pay. We want to reassure you that there are no financial risks in making your claim.

Remember, legal proceedings must be initiated within 3 years from the date of your accident. Failure to do this may result in your claim being time-barred and you may not be able to make a claim for compensation.
