Slip, Trip and Fall Claims
Accidents that cause Personal Injury
Have you suffered a personal injury following a trip, slip
or fall on a public highway or in a public place?
Your local highway authority or owner of a public place is legally responsible
for the maintenance of their stretch of road or building. If you have been
unfortunate enough slip, trip or fall as a result of a defective
paving slab, or a pot hole in the road or on the pavement or a hazard in a public building
and we are able to prove that this was caused by a failure
on the part of the Highway authority or owner of a public building to take adequate steps
to ensure your safety, then you could be entitled
to claim compensation for your personal injuries.

Steps you need to take following a trip, slip or fall accident:
details of any witnesses to your slip, trip or fall and/or witnesses
who are able to comment how long the defect has been in that particular state
- Take clear photographs of the defect, making sure they are taken
alongside a ruler so that the height or depth is easily visible and mark on the
photograph the direction of travel and the exact point of impact
- Take photographs of the surrounding area, showing easily identifiable
landmarks and street names
- Report the accident to the local authority or public building owner responsible
- Seek medical advice immediately if you have sustained an
injury and report the details as to how the accident
happened to the hospital/GP to ensure it is recorded
The above information is essential so that the local authority or person responsible can investigate your claim and also for us to prove that they
have failed in their legal duty to protect all users of the road/building.

I was surprised the depth that the solicitors went to get as much information about my accident. They made sure that I got my point across to the opposing solicitors.
Excellent service throughout; calls returned promptly; extremely efficient; friendly and understanding, would strong recommend 100%+ service.

I am indebted to Simpson Millar for the way in which they pursued my claim for compensation following my accident. I was very happy in the way I was kept informed of developments every step of the way during the proceedings. Once again, thank you for all your help.
