The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) reports that around 111,000 injuries associated with slips, trips and falls are reported in Britain each year. Many of these accidents are preventable with proper care and safety provisions. Unfortunately, they do happen, with slips, trips and falls leading to members of the public sustaining pain, injury or loss.
Here at Hampson Hughes, we have a team of highly trained and diligent accident injury solicitors, known for assisting many clients who have suffered injuries after falling, tripping or slipping in different public places. You have a right to be compensated for any injury experienced after a slip, trip or fall, provided:
Employers, event managers, site planners and a whole range of other parties should employ all the necessary safety measures to guarantee safety to all of their visitors. If the owner or the occupier fails to address possible hazards adequately, visitors are unreasonably exposed to higher levels of safety risk, leading to a possible accident injury claim.

|Claim Area||Type of Injury||Expected Compensation|

The three criteria highlighted below must be properly met for a person to make an accident injury compensation claim:
As one of the leading accident injury solicitors in the UK, with a track record for helping clients around England and Wales to obtain maximum compensation for their slip, trip and fall claims, we have a wealth of experience. Even if you are not sure of whether you have a strong claim, our legal experts will be able to offer a free consultation with you to discuss your possible accident injury claim, providing expert guidance to maximise the chance of a successful claim.
Here at Hampson Hughes, our skilful legal team will assess your potential claim against the other party responsible for your injury. Accident injury claims are made against the person or organisation who may be legally responsible for the actual accident that caused the injuries. Establishing whom to hold accountable for the injuries is not an easy task in some cases. For instance, if you trip over discarded rubbish, you may not immediately identify who is responsible for the negligence.
However, our skilled and experienced accident injury solicitors will help you explore your claim in a situation where you may not instantly know who is responsible for the accident. Our solicitors have the experience of many years in helping a range of clients to make successful claims against different third parties including local authorities, retailers and a range of employers. In most cases, we liaise with the insurer directly, since the responsible party usually has an insurance policy to cover against potential accidents and injuries.
There are a range of different injuries that a slip, trip and fall solicitor could help you claim for, with the compensation being based on the extent of the injury or damages sustained and any financial losses. Some of the most frequent slip, trip and fall injuries include:
– Medical Expenses: Any compensation awarded should recognise the costs of any required treatment resulting from a slip, trip or fall. Such expenses may include:
i) Home visits, including carers or nursing staff
ii) Medical appointment travel costs, medical aids and physiotherapy
– Injuries: Your accident injury solicitor will help you to make a claim with regards to any slip, trip or fall injury. Some of the factors considered while determining the appropriate compensation include; the impact of the injuries on your life, recovery duration, and the pain levels involved.
– Lost Earnings: If a doctor authorises you to be away from your workplace, you may be entitled to lost earnings compensation. Our experienced accident injury solicitors will also be able to help you to claim for potential loss of earnings in the future, provided that the suffered injuries prevent you from resuming your work immediately.
– Loss of Enjoyment: Loss of enjoyment opportunities, due to injuries like being unable to take part in your regular workouts in the gym, or any restriction from routine family activities like holidays or performing the ordinary household chores or caring for your children, also deserve appropriate compensation.
If you have not already gathered your evidence, knowing where to start can be a challenge. Our skilled and committed team of slip, trip and fall solicitors will provide you with all of the necessary legal assistance should we take on your claim. Tapping into their vast expertise and experience, our accident injury solicitors will advise you on the particular types of evidence critical in strengthening your claim before a court and obtain as much as they can on your behalf so please do not worry if you do not have any or all of it. Some of the evidence types that can prove useful in a slip, trip and fall claim include:
As you can see, making a successful slip, trip and fall claim is a complex process that requires you to use a qualified and experienced accident injury solicitor.
With this in mind, you should consider the following points before choosing your ideal accident injury solicitors:
– Compare and contrast legal services
Always take the time to review the first consultation meeting to assess the expertise of the accident injury solicitors and how they communicated with you. Some of the questions that can guide you through the reflection process include:
i). Did they explain the legal process involved during the meeting?
ii). Did they look properly at the details of your potential claim?
iii). Did you feel satisfied with the expertise and experience they displayed?
– Do your research
Take the time to perform an online search about the leading lawyers in your region. Include your local area in your keyword searches. You can also seek recommendations from friends, colleagues or family members who have requested legal services for accident injury claims in the recent past.
– Consider the Legal Charges
Here at Hampson Hughes, we offer No Win No Fee claim options in the vast majority of cases, protecting your financial interests as we can claim our legal costs from the defendant. Always discuss the legal fees with your solicitor, avoid working with accident injury solicitors who ask for upfront charges with no guarantee of any success.

We encourage our clients to document the event as well as they remember in order to inform your slip, trip and fall solicitor on the details of the incident to ensure that all the necessary points are included in the final claim.
