Slips and Trips

Slips, trips and falls are among the most common reported types of injury claim in the UK and here at Mercury Legal, we are experts in making sure victims get the best compensation possible.

Every owner or occupier of a building has a duty of care for the safety of all visitors on that property. They are liable if they have failed to do so and this applies to all types of property, from pubs and clubs to hotels and restaurants.

If you have been injured due to a slip, trip or fall caused by the negligence of the proprietor of a public place, there is a good chance that you could make a successful claim with Mercury Legal.

There are several causes of these accidents such as wet floors and loose cables. Regardless of how you sustained your injury, you should not be suffering as a result of the carelessness of others. 

Such falls also occur in rented housing, whether this be privately rented or Council housing. In these circumstances, if the defect was reported to the Council or landlord, and they failed to repair the damage or defect causing the hazard, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. 

We specialise in slips and trips at work and pride ourselves on our level of customer service and integrity. No matter how trivial you think your case is, pick up the phone as we are here to help.

Mercury Legal will pursue your claim at no upfront cost to you and you will not have to pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful through no fault of your own.
