Trip slip fall accidents are all too common in both public and private places in Sheffield. Our personal injury solicitors handle a large volume of slipping & tripping compensation claims. These mishaps can happen anywhere in Sheffield but the main circumstances are in relation to falls due to defects in the road or pavement, slips or falls in shops of offices and other public or private places including trips and slips at work.

Trip Slip Fall - what should you do?

  1. Contact a trip slip fall solicitor immediately to look into the matter before the prospect of obtaining corroborating evidence diminishes.
  2. Take photographs of the location of the incident immediately after the accident prior to any attempt by the owner or occupier to clean it up or fix the defect. Your trip slip fall solicitor will need to know the scale of any defect so use a ruler to show this in the photographs.
  3. Make sure that any accident in a shop or other premises has been reported to the management and entered into any relevant accident book especially if the accident occurred whilst at work.
  4. Obtain witness names & addresses for your trip slip fall solicitor to consider but do not interview then personally.
  5. Save a sample of any substance that caused you to fall (freezing it if necessary) and retain footwear and relevant clothing if appropriate.
