Slips, trips & other mishaps

It is unfortunate that amongst the general population, tripping on the highway and slipping on the highway claims are perceived as minor accidents. It is also unfortunate that such public belief only seeks to enhance the publics perception that such claims are as a result of a 'compensation culture'.

Having carried out personal injury claims for a considerable period of time, we can categorically state that the complete opposite is in fact reality.

Persons who have tripped or slipped on public highways often sustain very serious injuries which have a profound effect upon them and thus, in turn, their family members. Such accidents can, and do, prevent people from carrying out their everyday obligations and sometimes working. This not only causes direct pain and suffering but also has a wide ranging financial impact.

Local authorities have an obligation to maintain the highways at public expense. If the local authority does not carry out its statutory obligation, the Claimant is entitled to compensation.

There are many ways in which one can sustain personal injury from tripping and slipping. These include:-

- Tripping on pavements or adopted roads

- Falling and tripping as a result of defective utility manhole covers

- Slipping and tripping as a result of wet floors in supermarkets, hospitals, schools etc.

- Tripping or falling as a result of a defect in a work on a floor

- Tripping/slipping on floors as a result of houses in disrepair or defective premises.
