Slips
& Trips

Accidents can happen all the time; sadly, you can do little to avoid getting caught up in an accident. Sustaining an injury that wasn’t your fault can be overwhelming; what makes it worse for you is the injury stops you from doing what you love most.

It’s not just the physical aspects but the ongoing impact on daily life when you have a personal injury. The thought of starting a compensation claim for a personal injury can be stressful and daunting; with Ashwood Solicitors, there is no need to stress. Our personal injury solicitors will give you practical advice and support you throughout the decision-making process based on the accident and your own personal circumstances.

Slip and Trip Accidents in Public Places

In public places, accidents may occur in the space of a second and for no reason at all. However, it is the land owner’s or council’s responsibility to prevent these slip and trip accidents from happening.

The impact of a slip and trip accident could result in an absence from work, ongoing medical treatment and the need for extra care. At Ashwood Solicitors, we can assist you when making a claim as a result of a slip or trip accident in a public place.

Our team fully understand that an injury claim is not about the money, getting your life back on track and receiving the best rehabilitation so it no longer impacts you.

Common causes of slip and trip accidents

There may be a lot of factors that can cause an accident in a public place; there are often people responsible for making sure this doesnt happen. Many situations can lead to slip and trip hazards; some of these include:

  • Spilt drinks
  • Falling downstairs because of defective handrails or uneven surfaces
  • Falling from a raised height, such as a ramp or walkway.
  • Snow, ice or rainwater tracked in from outside.
  • Pooled water from leaking ceilings or poorly maintained air conditioning units
  • Newly mopped, polished or shined floors
  • Dropped food items
  • Wires and other things snaking along the floor

If left alone, the above instances can create a hazard for members of the public.
