Slip/Trip Claims

Slip/Trip Claims

Compensation for slips and trips Liverpool: Slip and trip type claims are very common and something that we come across on a regular basis. Often these types of accidents seem initially innocuous, but the aftermath of these accidents can be debilitating. If you are a visitor to somebody else’s premises such as a supermarket, and you slip due to a wet substance on the floor or trip, then you may have a claim under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957.

We have also seen a lot of claims due to people falling on pavements or roads due to potholes and other defects. If you have been injured in this way, you may be entitled to compensation if the defect was found to be dangerous and the local council did not spot it and repair it.

Examples of slip/trips

  • Slipping claims in supermarkets
  • Tripping claims on council pavements and roads
  • Tripping claims on private car parks
  • Slipping claims in shops
  • Slipping claims in pubs and nightclubs

 Case Study

Mary was on holiday and was walking from her caravan to the car park in the night. The path was not lit and there was a large boulder encroaching on it. She tripped over the boulder and broke her arm. Upon contacting Irvings, we felt due to the inadequate lighting and having an obstruction on the path that the owners of the caravan park were liable. We litigated on Mary’s behalf and settled her case for £3000.
