Slips in Public Places

If you have slipped or tripped and have suffered an injury in a public place within the last three years, you may be eligible for compensation.

The most common locations for people to trip or slip in public include:

  • Pavements/Public Highway
  • Parks
  • Playgrounds
  • Schools and colleges
  • Council offices and other premises
  • Garages, car showrooms
  • Car parks

The place where you slip or trip could either be owned by the Local Authority or a private company. Whichever it is, land owners have a duty to make sure their premises are safe for visitors to use. If the floors or surfaces are broken, uneven or dangerous, and cause you an injury, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

To get a quick estimation on the amount of compensation you could be entitled to, you might find it helpful to try our Compensation Calculator.
