Slip, Trip & Falls and accidents in Public Places

Slips, trips and falls can occur in a multitude of places – they can occur at a place of work, in public place or at private businesses. Examples of these types of claims include slipping on spillages in supermarkets, tripping over a defect in a pavement or falling from a height. To successfully pursue a cause of action relating to a slip, trip or fall, it is necessary to prove a third party was negligent and it was as a result of that negligence that an injury resulted.
