Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere. You could slip on a wet floor in a supermarket, trip on an uneven pavement or broken flag in the street or there may be obstacles on floors that may cause you to fall.
Slips, trips and falls can cause serious injuries, from sprains and fractures to broken bones. According to the Health & Safety Executive around 95% of major slips result in broken bones and made up more than half of all reported injuries during 2011/2012. If you have had an accident that is not your fault, or only partly your fault, then we can advise on whether or not you can claim for compensation.
Land and premises owners in a public place have a duty of care to protect the health and safety of members of the public. In some cases they have a system of inspection that can prove they are honouring their duty of care but this is something we will determine early on in your case as it may affect the overall outcome of your claim for compensation.
Usually the person responsible for your accident will be the owner of the premises or land where it occurred and it is important that you know exactly where the accident happened in order for us to take accurate photos and carry out a site inspection to evaluate and progress your accident claim.
We have a reputation for providing our clients with a quality service and we ensure that your claim is handled by a fully qualified solicitor throughout your accident compensation claim. Most firms of injury solicitors allocate unqualified claims handlers to slipping and tripping claims; however we recognise that innocent victims of these accidents deserve an expert injury solicitor to succeed with their claim.

Read the following information to find out more about how Mackrell & Thomas, specialist Liverpool Solicitors, can assist you with your slipping or tripping accident compensation claim.
If you have been injured as a result of a slip or tripping over then you may be entitled to claim compensation against the person, party or organisation responsible for maintaining the area that caused the accident.
If your accident occurred on a public footway, e.g. a pavement, path or a public road you would make a claim against the local highway authority (normally the local council). To succeed with such a claim you need to show that a defect is sufficiently large to constitute a hazard and also that it has been in that dangerous state for an unreasonably long time.
Other examples of cases may include accidents on premises when at a supermarket, shop or whilst visiting private or publicly-owned property. In these cases, the owner/occupier are legally responsible for your safety whilst you are on their premises. You can therefore bring a claim for compensation if you have suffered an injury as a result of their failure to take reasonable steps to ensure your safety.
Some local authorities will deny all slipping or tripping accident victims’ compensation claims as they want to take a stance against what they consider to be claims which deplete public resources. Mackrell & Thomas are experienced compensation injury solicitors with the expertise to successfully fight any such stance and will not hesitate in supporting a strong claim through to trial to ensure you receive the compensation claims you deserve.
It is vital to take photos as soon as possible after an accident before anyone has the chance of repairing the defect. It also helps to use a coin, bank card or similar as a rough measuring guide. We will then attend and take detailed photos and measurements.
To help us make a claim for compensation for an accident such as a slip, trip or fall on your behalf there are a few steps to follow that will aid us.

Keep any receipts for any out of pocket expenses. Please contact us with any queries you have with regards to an accident in a public place.
