Trip slip and fall examples

Anyone can be the victim of a slip and fall accident. If you believe you are involved in a public liability accident, it is important to consult with compensation lawyers to receive the best information for your personal injury claim.

Common slip and fall situations include:

  • Slipping on a wet floor in a supermarket
  • Tripping on an uneven footpath
  • Sustaining injuries as a result of faulty furniture/appliances on company premises
  • Objects falling off of construction sites
  • Falling down a flight of stairs that are poorly lit or slippery in a public space

If the risk is foreseeable it is the duty of the business/property owner to make sure their patrons are aware of this so that the risk is reduced. Usually, the actions that person should have taken to reduce risk are considered in public liability insurance claims. You cannot usually hold a person responsible for small or remote risks.
