Guide to slips, trips & falls claims in Belfast

It can be difficult to get to grips with the process of making slips, trips and falls claims in Belfast. Many people are involved in these types of accidents and don’t know what to do or who to turn to.

Our solicitors have been helping people make slip, trip and fall claims in Northern Ireland for over 50 years. We’re here to answer some of the most common questions that we’ve encountered.

How do average slip and fall claims work? 

This is the general process of making a slip and fall claim: 

  • If you were injured as a result of a slip, trip and fall in the past 3 years, please contact us to receive legal advice. 
  • We will gather all important evidence and ensure you are medically examined. 
  • Once we have gathered relevant information, we will be able to provide you with an idea of how much compensation you could receive. 
  • Typically, our solicitors enter into negotiations with insurers to reach a settlement. 
  • You then recover the compensation you deserve. 

If you have any questions about the slip, trip, and fall process, please contact our solicitors or complete our online form. We’re also happy to speak with you in person in our offices in Belfast,  Glengormley, and Carrickfergus. 

How much slip, trip and fall compensation could you receive? 

The amount of compensation you could receive for your slip, trip and fall is closely related to the complexity of your injury. For example, you would likely receive more completion for an injury that left you hospitalised for months than an injury that lasted days. You can use our helpful compensation calculator to get an idea of what sort of compensation you could receive. However, it is always best to speak with one of our solicitors directly by calling 0800 020 9311 in order to get a more accurate estimate. 

What to do after a slip, trip and fall in Northern Ireland?

If you were injured as a result of a slip, trip, and fall, you should always seek medical guidance from your doctor. You should take these types of accident seriously, as it may take days or weeks for serious issues to become apparent. 

If you suffered pain and feel that the accident wasn’t your fault, you should contact our solicitors. We will be able to guide you in how best to claim for your injuries.
