Slips, Trips and Falls

Slips, Trips and Falls

Slips, Trips and Falls may seem to be the least serious type of Personal Injury which can be sustained, however those who have suffered as a result of these kind of accidents know that the impact can be significant and the long-term consequences severe.

What may initially have seemed to be a minor injury can turn out to be something much more significant.

Torn ligaments and damaged muscles can take a long time to heal – sometimes as long as broken bones – and the effect on your day-to-day life can be dramatic. Everyday tasks become difficult and you may find that you need additional support, both with work and at home.

We are here to help with your claim

And get you the assistance you need, regardless of whether your accident happened as a result of:

• Slipping, e.g. on a shiny floor or on untreated ice

• Tripping on an uneven surface, e.g. a loose paving stone or raised kerb

• Falling down stairs, e.g. where handrails were broken or where steps were uneven

• Falling from a height, e.g. where insufficient guards were in place 

Whatever the circumstances of your Slip, Trip or Fall, we will give you the valuable advice you need and will pursue the compensation you deserve; compensation which will help you get back on track and recover fully from your injuries.

Responsible parties

There are people and organisations who are responsible for the Health & Safety of the general public as they go about their daily business. 

In public areas these will normally be one of the following groups:

• Building Owners (allowing public access) 
• Councils
• Local Authorities
• Other individuals/companies responsible for the maintenance of paths and roads

What if the accident was your fault?

Even if you think you may be partly to blame for your Slip, Trip or Fall, it is worth speaking to the experts at BRM Legal. There is a chance that the accident was made worse by environmental factors, by poorly maintained public rights of way or by the lack of adequate warning of hazards. One call to us will establish if your claim is likely to be successful and can therefore set your mind at ease.

Making a Claim

How do I make a claim?

Simply by contacting us at the first opportunity. The earlier we speak, the easier it is to capture all the details of your case and start working on your rehabilitation – and establish the compensation figure which could help you on your way to a full recovery.

In our initial free consultation we will provide you with all the information you need to pursue your claim and will explain to you how you can proceed on a NO WIN NO FEE basis*.

Where liability has been admitted by the responsible party, we will request interim payments to help with any immediate costs you are incurring (e.g. medical costs, extra childcare, rehabilitation, travel to appointments etc.). These payments are intended to ease the financial pressure on you at the present time and will be deducted from your final compensation sum.

As well as confirming the validity of your claim in our initial, no-obligation call, we can also give you an indication of the kind of compensation payment you are likely to receive.

What will it cost to pursue my claim?

At BRM Legal we understand that you may already have been left out of pocket through having to pay various expenses. For this reason we are happy to take on your case on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that you will incur no costs unless your claim is successful*.

Even when you win your case, the majority of your legal expenses will be paid by the other side and any other costs will simply be deducted from your total compensation amount.

*Please note: This is subject to a No Win No Fee agreement having been signed with us (in conjunction with our insurers) and the terms of that agreement having been met by both parties.

How long do I have to make a claim?

The general rule is that a claim must be made within 3 years of your Slip, Trip or Fall. In the case of a fatality, the family has three years from the death or from receipt of the post-mortem results.

There are also a few exceptions to the 3 year rule which are as follows:

• Those with impaired mental capacity and are unable to make their own claim have an unlimited time to do so
• Children can have a claim made upon their behalf any time up until their 18th Birthday and the child can claim for themselves from this point up until they turn 21.

How long will it take to receive compensation?

This depends on the individual circumstances of the incident in question and whether the responsible party has admitted liability. The severity of your injury and your on-going recovery and rehabilitation needs will also be a factor in the time taken to reach a settlement as at BRM Legal we want to ensure that we include every aspect of your future needs in the final sum, including long-term treatment and your total loss of earnings.

Our dedicated team will keep you updated throughout the process and tell you exactly how your case is progressing and what the likely final compensation figure might be.
