Slips, Trips and Falls

No Win No Fee Injuries resulting from slips, trips and falls are very common and arise in many situations including :

  • On Commercial Premises - eg. shops, restaurants, offices. Accidents may be caused by wet or slippery floors, worn floorcoverings, obstructions etc. The owners/occupiers of premises have a duty to keep their premises in a safe condition and a claim may lie against them if they fail to do so.

  • On Roads, Footpaths, Pavements etc. - thousands of accidents occur each year as a result of falls from this source. Floors may be uneven, pitted, worn or in a poor state of repair. As above, owners/occupiers of premises must keep them in a safe condition. However, many of these accidents occur in public areas, and in this case the responsibility normally lies with the Local Authority.

  • At Work - Many industrial accidents result from slips, trips or falls including falls from height. Causes can defective floor surfaces, obstructions, trailing cables, unsafe working practices. Employers have a duty both at Common Law and under Statute to maintain a safe working environment and may be liable to pay compensation to employees injured as a result of breach of this duty.

Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
