The following are some of the most common places people suffer personal injuries as a result of a trip, slip or fall.
What type of injuries are caused by trips, slips and falls?
Depending on how and where the injury was caused, the injuries can be anywhere on your body, and be minor soft tissue whiplash type injuries from a jolting fall, to much more serious injuries including serious head injuries after falling down stairs, or falling over an uneven surface. Dental injuries are often an unfortunate injury, suffered by those who have fallen, slipped or tripped, with bruises, cuts, lumps and bumps on bottoms and elbows, being a very common injury for those who have slipped on spillages or down open manholes. Often, MG Legal’s personal injury solicitors handle personal injury cases where a client has suffered broken bones, whiplash injuries and cuts and bruises.

How much compensation will I receive if I am injured as a result of an injury caused after a slip, trip or fall?
The big question, and the one we all want to know the answer to.
The amount of compensation you will receive all depends on how you were injured, and how the injuries have affected your life. Any personal injury claim is a claim for pain, suffering and loss of amenity, thus meaning that every single person, may suffer differently even though they have sustained the same injury. Subject to this, the amount of personal injury compensation each injured person receives would reflect their own circumstances, and be different.
If you have been injured, and have ongoing losses, for example, if you are injured and unable to carry on working MG Legal can request an interim payment from your employer’s insurers, enabling you to recover, without facing the stress of not being able to pay your monthly bills.
See our personal injury compensation calculator here, for rough figures, that do not include any claims for loss of earnings, medical care and attention, housing renovations, or loss of things like congenial employment. Every one of MG Legal’s clients are different, the injuries the sustain vary, as do the effects on their lives. From injuries to the head, neck and upper body, or being crushed; personal injury compensation, often called general damages, is based upon the nature and severity of the injuries sustained, and to the area of the body affected. Every one of us is different, and can sustain different injuries on public transport.
MG Legal’s expert team of personal injury solicitors value all personal injury claims with reference to the 15th edition of the Judicial Studies Board Guidelines, and then research every client’s individual circumstances, so they receive the maximum personal injury compensation they deserve. If you are intending to claim expenses as part of your public liability compensation claim, such as prescription costs and travelling expenses for treatment, remember to keep receipts as evidence.
I’ve had an accident in a public place what evidence of my accident do I need?
MG Legal’s personal injury solicitors have won over 99% of the public liability claims we accept on a no win no fee basis.
To make a successful public liability compensation claim, you will need to prove that another party was responsible for your injury. Below is a guide of the evidence that will help your claim succeed:
Take photographs and videos of the area where the accident happened
If you have tripped or fallen on a poorly maintained pavement or flags, use a 50p piece as a marker of the size of the defect. Lay the 50p in the defect, and then take a photograph.
If possible, use a copy of that day’s newspaper, and place it next to the defect, clearly showing the date of the newspaper, and helping to evidence the date of your accident.
Witnesses are always important, so ask anybody who saw the accident for their telephone number, email address or Facebook details.
Report your tripping or falling accident to the landowner, their employees, or anyone in occupancy of the land at the time.
Ask the landowner if they have any CCTV, and if the recording shows your tripping of slipping accident
How long do I have to make a claim?
Subject to the Limitation Act 1980, if you have suffered personal injury in a public place, you have three years to pursue a claim for compensation. There are exceptions, for those under 18 years old at time of the injury, in that minors have three years from their 18th birthday within which to make a personal injury claim.
