Workplace Accidents and Injuries in Liverpool
Every employer in the UK has a legal obligation to maintain a safe working place for their employees. This is outlined in the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
When Health and Safety protocols fail, leading to an accident at work that injures a staff member, you could make a personal injury claim for compensation.
Slip, Trip, And Fall Claims
Slips, trips and falls are very common reasons why people approach us here at Legal Expert to process an injury claim. An accident leading to slip, trip, and fall claims can happen in many ways, indoors or outdoors, for example:
- Falling due to stumbling over a badly set paving slab in the street.
- Tripping on warped wooden floorboards in a shop.
- Slipping on spilt food in a fast-food restaurant that was not signposted as a hazard.
These accidents can happen anywhere. In an office, at the local health clinic, the library, a supermarket, or just walking down the street.

If you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim, you might be interested in working with a solicitor. One of our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool could help you. Our solicitors provide their services under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), which is a type of No Win No Fee arrangement.
Under the terms of a CFA, your solicitor won’t ask you to make any upfront or ongoing payments for their work on your case. They also won’t charge you for their services if your claim doesn’t succeed.
However, should your claim have a positive outcome, your solicitor will deduct a success fee from your compensation. This success fee is taken as a small percentage, which is limited by a legal cap.
