Slips and Trips

Slips and trips happen in all sorts of circumstances, and these can vary greatly. What is often worse in these situations is that the accident is frequently not your fault.  You may have slipped on a wet floor in a shop or supermarket, or tripped over debris carelessly left on a floor at work, or tripped on an uneven road or pavement.

We have significant experience in dealing with personal injury cases, and those involving slips and trips are certainly no exception. When you contact us about your slip or trip, we want to get a full understanding of exactly what has happened to you. One of our experienced team will talk through the accident circumstances with you and ask you detailed questions about the situation that led to your slip and trip. This will enable us to give you sound and relevant legal advice, and also mean that we can build a detailed picture of your case, and therefore advise you appropriately.

Once we have taken on your case, the team here at Jackson Boyd will handle everything for you, right through to the completion of your personal injury claim. This will always be done in a sensitive and professional manner and we will make sure that you are kept fully up to date with every development. We will need to gather evidence to support your claim which may include; pictures of the accident site showing the defect that caused you to slip or trip, witness statements and police reports, medical reports and any accident book as well as any other evidence we believe may improve your chances of securing maximum compensation.

Most personal injury cases settle out of court, and we will strive to reach settlement before pursuing any other course of action. This will allow you to receive your compensation more quickly and avoid litigation. However, our core focus is acting in your best interests, and if we believe court action is necessary, we will always act to get you the compensation you deserve.

We take great pride not only in our legal knowledge and expertise, but also in our first class client care. We will tailor our legal advice to your specific situation, to make sure that you can get the best possible outcome given what has happened to you.
