How Might I End up Slipping or Tripping?
There are plenty of ways you might end up slipping or tripping over. You could, for example, fall over on a poorly maintained footpath, that is under the council’s responsibility. Or you might trip over improperly in laid paving stones in the town centre.
If you are inside, you may slip over on a wet floor because the cleaning company forgot to put out a sign warning you of a slippery floor.
Whatever the cause of your slip or trip, if it leads top you falling to the ground, it’s likely that you will hurt yourself. Sometimes, the damage is minor – a graze to your knee and bruised pride maybe. But, sometimes the slip or trip can end in serious injury. Even what might seem like minor trips and slips can end up causing debilitating back injuries or broken ankles. People are often surprised by the severity of an injury sustained by a slip or trip and the consequences the injury can have.

This kind of claim is known as a personal injury claim and is subject to a ‘statute of limitations’. This means that if you want to make a claim for personal injury compensation, you have to do it within three years of your slip or trip, or three years from the date that you realised your current problems were caused by the slip or trip. After that time frame has been passed, there is not opportunity to claim.
‘No Win, No Fee’
Asons believe that those who’ve been injured by a slip or trip, through no fault of their own, should not suffer financially when making a claim for compensation. That’s why we use the ‘no win, no fee’ system.
