Slips, trips and falls in public places, such as in the street or supermarket, are commonplace. Most of the time people can take a tumble and get away with no injuries, but sometimes it can be more serious, with people suffering long-term problems due to a back injury or broken bones.

Slips, trips and falls in public places, such as in the street or supermarket, are commonplace. Most of the time people can take a tumble and get away with no injuries, but sometimes it can be more serious, with people suffering long-term problems due to a back injury or broken bones.

Whether you have tripped on a paving slab or slipped in the supermarket, we can advise you on the merits of your claim and act on your behalf to get the best possible outcome. We will gather witness evidence about the accident circumstances, as well as medical evidence from suitable experts who can comment on the extent and long-term impact of any injuries.

Even if you believe you may have contributed in some way to your accident, you may still be entitled to compensation provided we can show that someone else was partly to blame. It is important to speak to us as soon as you can to ensure the timely gathering of witness evidence that will help your case.

Examples of slips, trips and falls in public places

  • Supermarket spillages
  • Falls on icy pavements
  • Trips on uneven paths or road surfaces
  • Falls in a hospital, shop, leisure centre or train station

Accidents abroad

If you have been involved in an accident abroad and it was caused by someone else’s negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation in the same way that you can in the UK. There are however differences in how you approach making a claim that requires the assistance of expert solicitors who understand the process.

Whether you’ve been injured after a fall, or because of a car crash, understanding who you should be making a claim against is crucial.

If you were working abroad at the time of the accident, you may be entitled to make a claim against your employer if they are based in the UK or have a registered office in the UK.

If you were on holiday at the time of the accident, and you booked your holiday through a UK travel agent, there are many circumstances in which you can make a claim against your tour operator.

Accident situations vary, and you may be struggling to work out what you need to do, however our solicitors will guide you through the process every step of the way.

Examples of accident abroad claims

  • Road traffic accidents involving foreign drivers
  • Food poisoning whilst on holiday or travelling
  • Slip by the side of a pool
  • Accident involving a water sport whilst abroad
  • Deaths whilst abroad
