Slips & Trips
The potential for injury as a direct result of a slip, trip or fall is fairly limitless.
Though some incidents may result in only minor injuries, you may find yourself in a position where negligence, inadequate or dangerous public terrain, or direct interaction with another person, results in a serious injury as a result of a fall.
Though serious injuries are by no means the norm, Eve refuses to take the ‘exception’ as the ‘rule’ when it comes to legal action, and compensation. If you have been injured as a result of a slip, trip or fall — for example, on a piece of uneven pathway, due to an obstruction or spillage, or in the workplace — you may be entitled to compensation as part of a personal injury claim.
As with all personal injury claims, there is a strict three-year deadline adhered to, between the date of the incident, and the date you are still potentially eligible for a compensation claim. Getting in touch with Eve as soon as possible after a slip, trip or fall resulting in injury is of paramount importance, so that we are able to offer the best chance of winning you the compensation you deserve.
In legal terms, a ‘slip or trip’ is defined by the point at which the soles of your feet lose contact with the floor, resulting in a loss of balance, and subsequently fall. If you are unsure whether the incident you experienced qualifies under this definition, Eve will be able to assist you in defining your experience, and recommending whether or not you should pursue a claim against a third-party.
In the event that your claim goes to court, and you are, in effect, suing for compensation from a third-party as a result of injury, several factors will be taken into account. These include, but are not limited to, the nature and severity of your injury; the means you, and others, might have taken to prevent it; the physical, emotional and economic impact on your life since the injury occurred; and the predicted impact on your future, as a result of said injury.
Concerned about finances? No concerns to be had. As with many solicitors dealing with slip and trip claims, Eve operates on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis, reassuring you that you will not be out of pocket, in the event that your claim is not proceeded with, or is lost in a court of law.
We operate as a trusted support system for personal injury claims in Manchester, Bolton, Bradford, Leeds, and Liverpool, though claims may be considered from anywhere within England and Wales.
