About Slip, Trip and Fall Claims
Slips, trips and falls can occur in almost any place, but it is more likely that these will happen where surfaces are damaged, wet or slippery..
Businesses and public bodies, such as local councils, have a duty to ensure the safety of visitors to their premises. This may include displaying appropriate signage to highlight an area that could cause a slip, trip or fall if they are not able to clean up or repair the flooring immediately. Failure to comply with this duty will, in most cases, make owners or occupiers of the premises liable for any accidents that happen.
Slips, trips and falls also happen outside, usually due to broken or cracked flooring and pavements or adverse weather conditions. Although the local council is most likely responsible for maintaining and/or repairing public roads and footpaths, claiming for accidents in other public places, for example, car parks, shopping centres or hospital grounds can be more complex where it is difficult to determine who is responsible for your injury.
