Donoghue Solicitors are personal injury accident claims specialists. We are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (no.573581). You can trust us to act in your best interests and get you the compensation you deserve.

What can I claim accident compensation for after a trip fall?

After a fall, people normally think of personal injury claims. There is more to it than that though. Your solicitor’s job is to put you in the position as if the accident never happened. With your help they will also claim for other items, such as lost earnings, care, private medical treatment, out of pocket expenses and any other justifiable expenses.

Each case is different though, and the extent to which things can be recovered depends on what the claim is for and if it can be proved. Speak to one of our expert no win no fee lawyers to find out more.

How much will it cost for one of your no win no fee lawyers to take my tripping accidents case?

Where appropriate, our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis. (Click on the link for more details.) You do not have to pay anything towards your case at any time, and you are not at financial risk in the event your claim does not succeed, subject to terms. Read our no win no fee page for more details.)

As a Law Society accredited specialist compensation claims law firm you can trust us to be true to our word.

What are trip claims worth?

Every claim is different, but there are guidelines which the courts use as a starting point. We have used these to develop a free, no obligation, compensation calculator. Feel free to try it to see what you might be able to claim, then contact us to discuss your case in detail with one of our solicitors.

How do accident compensation claims get dealt with after tripping accidents?

If you have been in a tripping accident it is essential that you contact us right away. Preserving evidence, such as taking photographs of the accident site, getting CCTV footage etc. is a race against time.

We may also want to speak to witnesses and local people in the area to find out about the defect which caused your fall.

Your claim for accident compensation can be won or lost on such evidence, so it is vital that you instruct us as soon as possible after the accident.

What is the legal side of tripping accidents claims?

We can help if your accident was caused as a result of someone else’s negligence. This means that they were responsible for your safety, they failed in their duty to you and you have suffered as a result. If you tripped and fell in the street it is usually the local council’s responsibility, but often contractors who had access (e.g. utility providers) can be to blame.

In publicly accessible premises, such as shops and offices, our no win no fee lawyers will take your claim to the owners or occupiers. Most of the time, this means dealing with insurance companies.

Either way, the law relating to tripping accidents is varied, involving the Highways Act, Occupiers’ Liability Acts and other laws, as well as interpreting cases in courts and regulations set down by other bodies, such as the Health and Safety Executive.

Our no win no fee lawyers are specialists in this complicated area of law and will ensure that your personal injury claims are fully protected.
