    Slips & Trips Claims

    Slips, trips and falls can be embarressing, some may even find humour in them and the seriousness of the accident is downplayed. However the reality might prove much more severe than that. Slipping or tripping can lead to serious and inconvenient injury and in instances where the accident was the fault of another, compensation may be owed.

Slips & Trips Claims

 How We Can Help You With A Slip, Trip Or Fall Claim

The following are some of the types of slip, trip or fall claims we have pursued on behalf of clients:

  • Falling injuries
  • Injuries caused by defective pavements
  • Injuries suffered by pedestrians or cyclists due to potholes in the road
  • Slipping accidents in supermarkets caused by wet floors or by produce left on the floor
  • Slipping and tripping accidents in the workplace caused by wet floors or by debris left lying on the floor

We offer a professional and supportive service as well as providing expert advice and guidance throughout your slip or trip claim. Your local authority, or whoever is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the public area or facility, has a responsibility to the public to ensure that they are safe whilst on their premises.

If you have suffered as the result of a slip, trip or fall in a public area and you feel your accident could have been avoided, then Paschal O’Hare Solicitors could help you make a compensation claim against the owner, occupier, local council, or other authority that is responsible for the upkeep of the location where you were injured.

Trip Claims

A tripping accident normally occurs when a person trips on a surface which is raised above a surrounding surface or walkway. An example of a trip claim would be where a paving stone on a footpath is raised up thereby creating a tripping point. Tripping accidents can also occur when objects or debris are left on a path or walkway.

Slip Claims

A slip accident normally occurs due to the presence of a liquid substance on a walkway. The most common example of a substance giving rise to a slipping accident would be a spillage of water. Such slipping accidents normally occur in the work place, in public buildings, or in supermarkets.

Slip, Trip and Fall Claim Compensation

We use our extensive experience in all of these types of claims to obtain the right amount of compensation for you in the fastest period of time possible. The compensation for you is not only for your injuries, but also for all of your losses and expenses.

Stay Connected

With our specially designed app, clients have the option to be updated by their solicitor throughout the entire slip or trip claim process. You can message us with answers or queries and even attach photographs to help speed up your case. The app is also loaded with a fully functional secure & encrypted document signature feature. However, if you prefer to do things by post or email, we can do that too.

Our Promise

We pledge to seek the best possible outcome for our clients and strive to get them the deserved compensation.


All initial enquiries are completely free of charge allowing for the opportunity to determine if a claim is possible before committing. Should a claim proceed, our final bill is recovered from the party at fault.

"No Win No Fee" is not permitted in Northern Ireland. However, some clients may be eligible for legal aid or legal expenses insurance.
