Slipping and Tripping
There are many thousands of injuries arising from slips and trips each year. Falling over in public can feel embarrassing, especially if caused by somebody else’s negligence.
Specialist Slipping and Tripping Personal Injury Solicitor
Slipping and tripping can give rise to severe injuries involving high degrees of pain and suffering. It can also result in a loss of amenity and income, together with medication expenses and treatment costs.
The Law of Negligence is supplemented by Case Law and Statutory Authorities which provide a duty of care upon owners and occupiers of premises to ensure that they are safe.
There are many places lawfully visited by individuals each year where it is the duty of the owner and/or occupier, which includes private individuals, companies, businesses and local authorities, to ensure that the premises are safe and free from hazards which may cause slips and trips. Local authorities in particular are under duty to ensure that pavements and public highways are in a safe condition for public use.

- Pathways on public land
- Pathways on private land
- Shopping centres
- Public houses
Injuries resulting from slipping and tripping can be relatively minor, such as sprains and bruising. They can equally be much more severe, involving broken limbs and significant soft tissue injuries causing severe ongoing symptoms.
