If you are injured in an accident which was not your fault but because of someone else’s negligence then you can claim compensation for slip, trip or fall.

These are some of the reason which makes it more important for you get the compensation for slip, trip or fall.

Slips are the most common on the wet or oily or uneven surfaces, or the pavement and the roads. There are many people who face slip accidents on the snow when the weather becomes bad.

Falls take place when you fall on something while walking on the road or a slab that is lying unattended.

All of the work environments should be safe for the working of the employees. Employers have to take care that the employees are working under a safe environment.  Even the shop owners have the responsibility to ensure that their customers and the employees are safe in the shop so they should take some of the safety measures to make the environment safer. If they fail to do so then they are responsible for the payment of compensation to the victim of the accident.

"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
