Slips & Trips Claims & Compensation | Services | Paschal O’Hare Personal Injury Solicitors | Belfast - Northern Ireland

Slips & Trips Claims

Slips, trips and falls can be embarrassing, 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.

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.
