Our personal injury solicitors have legal expertise relating to a wide range of accidents and personal injury claims, with a particular expertise in dealing with serious tripping and slipping incidents.
We have successfully brought a claim in the following instances of tripping and slipping:
Trips and slips on the highway;
Trips and slips in shops;
Accidents on premises involving visitors and non-visitors;
Accidents relating to the occupation of land.
Our lawyers have a wealth of experience in dealing with these claims at the County Court, High Court and the Court of Appeal.
Tripping and slipping claims are notoriously difficult to win and require significant early investigation. It is only at this point that the merits of a potential claim become clear. Our personal injury solicitors work closely with experienced engineers, surveyors and medical experts, who in turn provide well-informed and balanced expert evidence to assist in the preparation and assessment of your claim.
We deal with many highway trips and slips where local authorities rely on the so-called ‘statutory defence’ under Section 58 of the Highways Act 1980. This means that if a local authority can prove that it has taken such care as in all the circumstances was reasonably required to make sure that part of the highway was not dangerous for traffic, it will defeat a claim. Since this is a complete defence to a claim, we take particular care when assessing these claims where serious injury is involved. Our solicitors will consider, amongst other things, if the highway was not reasonably safe for those expected to use it, relevant Codes of Practice, the standard of maintenance and state of repair and whether appropriate warning notices were used.
