Tripping and Slipping


Accidents can happen anywhere, at any time. A large number of tripping and slipping accidents are sustained annually but in certain circumstances they could have been avoided. If the accdient causes an injury then there may be grounds for bringing a claim for compensation.

At Head Injury UK our specialist solicitors have successfully pursued claims and obtained compensation for clients who have:

  • Slipped in a shop, supermarket or other public place where spilt liquids have not been cleaned up properly or items have been left in dangerous locations
  • Tripped on an uneven road or pot hole in the pavement due to the Local Authority not undertaking adequate inspections or repairs
  • Been injured at work or school due to premises not being kept in safe condition such as carpets being worn or cables not being secured properly.

At Head Injury UK we have the experience and expertise to assist with tripping and slipping claims.Through our experience of handling tripping accident claims, we recognise that people are likely to be distressed and anxious about the procedure of bringing a personal injury claim. If the persons injures mean they are unfit to work, then there is the added worry of how they will be able to support their family whilst they are unable to work. We are therefore dedicated to ensuring that the claim is handled as smoothly and efficently as possibly. We ensure that liability is established at the earliest opportunity so that the financial burden can be lifted and compensation is received without delay. This enables the accident victim to concentrate fully on their recovery. We always aim to help our clients put the accident behind them and get on with their life as quickly as possible.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
