Slips and trips

If you think you have slipped or tripped and it wasn’t your fault, then we may be able to assist you.

Slips and trips often fall into one of 3 categories:

  1. Slip and trips in public places
    It is their responsibility to ensure that public areas meet health and safety standards.
  1. Slip and trips in private establishments
     Your claim will be against the private insurance companies that cover these private establishments.
  2. Slip and trips at the workplace
    It is a legal requirement that all employers have employer liability insurance. Therefore, if you have an accident at work, then your claim should be against the insurer, rather than your employer.

Causes of slips and trips include:

  • Wet floors
  • Uneven flooring/ surfaces
  • Poor lighting
  • Damaged pavements and roads
  • Inadequate floor coverings
  • Cables and wires
