Slips, Trips and Falls Compensation Claims
One of the most frequent types of calls we receive about compensation claims is related to injuries from slips, trips and falls. When someone falls short in their responsibility to keep public spaces or your work environment safe, a simple act like walking down the street can have unexpected and painful repercussions.
At The Compensation Experts, we assist people who have been injured from a slip, trip, or fall, first helping them determine whether they have grounds for a successful claim and, if so, linking them with the personal injury solicitor within the East Midlands – who will support them through the legal process.
What is a Slip, Trip or Fall Compensation Claim?
Typical examples of compensation claims for slips, trips, and falls include:
- Slipping on a greasy floor in a kitchen or restaurant
- Falling over obstacles left in walkways, like boxes of rubbish waiting to be disposed of in a shop
- Tripping over uneven flooring, or loose carpet
Accidents like these can occur while you are in your place of work, if you are making a collection or delivery, or if you are a customer or other approved visitor. The cause can be accidental, negligent, or due to inappropriate or inadequate cleaning or Health and Safety procedures – it does not matter. If you have been hurt in a slip, trip, or fall that was not your fault, The Compensation Experts can help.
Compensation Claims for Slips, Trips, and Falls
Compensation cannot change the past, but it can provide you with funds to aid your recovery and make your suffering easier to overcome. As well as paying an amount of damages for your injury it can cover:
- Lost earnings if you have been unable to work due to your injury
- Reasonable private medical costs so you can access services such as rehabilitative therapy or any necessary nursing care
- Travel expenses to and from the hospital, and to and from work if your injury prevents you from using your usual method of commuting
- In the case of fatal injuries, compensation can also include the cost of supporting dependents of the victim and additional expenses for repatriation and burial.
We appreciated that you have had a traumatic time and may still be recovering physically and emotionally from your ordeal. To make sure claiming compensation is as stress-free as possible we offer several key services:
