Slips, Trips and Falls can happen to anyone.
What’s more, they can happen to anyone and can easily turn into more serious injuries, caused by another's negligence. If you believe you have been a victim of negligence that has caused you injury, then our Middlesbrough-based slip, trip and fall solicitors can help.
What’s more, they can happen almost anywhere – outside on a pavement, in a supermarket, restaurant, school, even in the office. If you’ve visited a public place where an accident happened, you may be entitled to slip compensation.
You may assume that as your injury was caused by an ‘accident,’ there is no one to take responsibility, this is not the case.
The occupier of the land or building has a duty to ensure that you’re safe and is responsible for your injuries if they’ve failed to take reasonable care. The issue as to what is and is not “reasonable” depends on the circumstances, and these claims are not always straightforward. Fortunately, at Atha & Co we have substantial experience in successfully negotiating slip, trip and fall claims of all sorts.
You’re not just a name on a file. Choose the one you know and you’ll be looked after as an individual and given the best in legal support by our expert claims solicitors.
We're local solicitors based in Middlesbrough who know the area, so if you've had an accident and been affected by a slip, trip or fall in the Tees Valley area, we'll help you to maximise your compensation claim.
What injuries can you claim for caused by a slip, trip or fall?
Injuries sustained by an accident such as a slip, trip or fall can range anywhere from a cut or bruise to increasingly more serious injuries such as concussion and brain injuries.
Am I eligible to make a slip, trip or fall compensation claim?
If you’re 18 and over and have been injured in a slip, trip or fall accident in the last 3 years then you may be entitled to compensation. You must also believe that your injury was caused due to the fault, or negligence of someone else.
You may have slipped on a wet floor in a shop, where there was no wet floor sign displayed, or even tripped over some loose wires in your workplace.
If you believe that you are entitled to some compensation, then get in touch with our expert personal injury solicitors.
