Slips, Trips & Falls


Falling in a public place can not only be embarrassing but often it causes injury. Where the slip or fall was caused by someone else’s negligence, you’re entitled to compensation for your injuries and any financial losses you have suffered.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident that was not your fault, we can help to get the compensation you need to help you get on the road to recovery.

We operate on a No Win, No Fee basis, meaning that there no upfront costs to you. We offer a free initial, no-obligation assessment of your case.

Call us on 0161 225 8181 to discuss your claim, or submit your details below and we’ll call you back at a time convenient for you.

Where do slips, trips and fall accidents usually take place?

Accidents caused by slips, trips or falls on public or private property are very common and we regularly bring successful compensation claims arising out of accidents in:

  • Shops and supermarkets
  • Offices
  • Restaurants, hotels and pubs
  • Car parks

Businesses and property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises safe for visitors. When they fail to do so and this leads to an accident, the injured person can claim compensation from the business or its insurer.

What should you do if you have suffered an injury due to a slip, trip or fall?

  • Report the accident to a member of staff, or the owner, as soon as you can.
  • Make sure the accident is recorded in their accident book.
  • If possible, take photos of the accident locations, ideally showing what caused the accident.
  • Get the name and contact details of any witnesses.
  • Seek medical treatment and ensure that your injuries are medically recorded.
