These accidents are usually caused by something simple like a cracked pavement or a wet floor. The injuries,though, can be far from simple! Injuries from slips and trips can include shoulder back pain, sprained ankles, head injuries, concussion, knee injuries and more.Facial lacerations and broken noses often are a feature for the unlucky person.
Slipped or tripped or fallen in a shop or supermarket or anywhere?
Have you slipped over on something left carelessly on the floor while out shopping (e.g.loose cardboard, wet floor etc) or whilst walking?
Have you been hit by supermarket displays or hanging signs that have fallen down?
Injured yourself on a slippery floor that was not signposted?
Or tripped on a pavement that was uneven or broken?
You may be entitled to compensation (i.e. award of money) for any injuries sustained through a trip or fall that were not your fault.
If you or anyone you know has been involved in a slip, trip or fall in the past two years and would like to find out if you are entitled to claim, then, contact a solicitor to find out more.
If you can take photos of the scene, then that would be a bonus.You should also hold on to your footwear.
