The expert personal injury lawyers at Forbes are here to help you pursue a Trips Slips & Falls compensation claim.

Fallen in the street, at work, in the park or elsewhere? If the fall was caused because of a defective pavement, a hole or substance you can claim compensation for your personal injuries, and any financial losses you may have incurred.

At Forbes Solicitors we have a large dedicated team of No Win No Fee Personal Injury Solicitors experienced in handling compensation claims for people who have slipped, tripped or fallen whether it was at work, on the street, in a shop, supermarket or a pub.

Some of the key issues our expert Slips, Trips & Falls Solicitors deal with involve the following:

  • Wet floors
  • Accidents in public playgrounds
  • Slips in snow and ice
  • Pavements that have been poorly maintained
  • Slips trips and falls in the workplace, including falls from height
  • Accidents in colleges, schools, hospitals and other public places
  • Slips trips and falls in shopping centres
  • Slips trips and falls in council flats

Councils have a duty of care to ensure pavements and public places are as safe as possible, but unfortunately accidents can still happen. You may have fallen in the street due to unmarked road works, or have tripped over cabling that has been left above ground. Alternatively shop owners and supermarkets must ensure any wet floors or potentially hazardous environments such as loose shelving or displays are highlighted. Failure to do so can lead to their customers being injured.

Our team of expert slips, trips and falls solicitors draw upon years of experience in securing compensation for those who have suffered a personal injury in a public place. We will fight for the maximum amount of compensation available at all times to make sure any lost finances are recovered and you have access to the expert medical help you need, including any on-going treatments or rehabilitation programs. Our solicitors can pursue these claims on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means there is no financial risk to you.
