Slip, trip, fall injury sstatistics

Take a look at the graph above; this shows the most common types of workplace accidents in the UK. You will see that slips, trips and falls are the most common of all. This is because, after road traffic accidents, these are the accidents the people most frequently make a personal injury claim for.

A trip, slip or a fall can happen in any place, and at any time. These are especially dangerous accidents for elderly people. A broken femur or pelvis can be a traumatic, life-threatening injury for an elderly person.

Most falls, slips or trips result in fairly minor injuries such as a sprained ankle or wrist, or fractures to the hand or arm bones. However, in extreme cases, they can cause death. Legal Expert is able to help everyone in London to make a claim for a slip, trip or fall accident. Please call us on the number at the end of the page to proceed with your claim today.

Slips, trips, or falls can happen anywhere and have many causes. They can happen in a public place, such as walking down the street or visiting the library, and they can happen in private buildings such as a friend’s home, or your place of work. For example:

  • A supermarket where liquid has been spilt on the floor.
  • A public carpark with a damaged or badly laid curbstone.
  • Walking down a street with potholes or broken paving
  • A hotel room with a frayed or torn carpet.
  • A hospital, on a stairwell with a broken safety rail.

Slips, Trips, Or Falls At A Hotel In London

The hotel operator must (and this is a legal requirement) provide a safe placed for guests, visitors to the hotel, and also its staff. If it doesn’t, and somebody comes to harm, a reason to make a claim could exist. Typical hazards in a hotel could be:

  • Spilt food on the floor of the hotel dining room or restaurant.
  • Cracked of broken paving slabs in the customer parking area.
  • Badly lit stairways, or stairs with a damaged safety rail.
  • Obstructions left by cleaning or maintenance staff.

  • Soft drinks spilt on the floor of a nursery.

Who is Liable For My Slip Or Trip Injury Claim

When you are injured in a slip, trip or fall accident, the primary question is whether any third party is liable for it? Unless they are, you won’t be eligible to make a claim. Every building that allows members of the public to enter, must comply with the Occupiers Liability Act. Additionally, every business has to comply with all of the legislation set out by the Health & Safety Executive that pertains to their specific industry. Failure to comply with either of these two bodies of legislature, will see them liable for paying compensation.

Legal Expert can help you to discern just who is liable for your slip, trip or fall accident. Speak to one of our team on the number at the end of this page, and they will assist you with this.

How Long Do I Have To Make A Claim For A Slip Or Fall?

In general, you have a deadline of three years within which you must make a personal injury claim. The exception to this is if you have developed an illness or disease due to the actions of a third party. In this case, the three-year limit will run from the time the medical conditions is first diagnosed.
