Trip and Fall Cases

Trip and fall accidents are caused by someone falling, as a consequence of an object or dangerous hazard on the ground. For example, you can trip and fall on a broken footpath, service cover etc in a public area. We at Berwick Solicitors have seen a wide range of injuries arising from such incidents such as back injury, shoulder injury, fractured ankles, fractured wrist, facial injuries etc. These injuries can have a detrimental effect to the life of the injured party as they may lead to an inability to work.

In order to bring a successful personal injury case, you have to prove that the owner or controller of the public area or premises where the incident occurred was at fault in allowing some dangerous condition to exist that caused you to trip and fall. It is always a good idea to take a photograph of the object that caused you to fall.

Claims for personal injuries sustained due to a trip and fall accident are processed firstly through the Injuries Board and if they are not resolved, they may then proceed into the Court process. If you sustained a personal injury as a result of a slip and fall, you may be entitled to claim against the owner/occupier of the property or premises and you should contact your personal injury solicitor for further advice on the matter.
