Slips, Trips & Fall Claims

These kinds of accidents can occur in many places such as:

  • Public places such as parks, the pavement, playgrounds
  • Supermarkets, shopping centres and shops
  • Care homes including associated outdoor gardens
  • Pubs
  • Cinemas
  • Train stations and bus depots
  • Libraries
  • Communal areas such as in apartment blocks

If you have an accident in a place such as this, you may well have a claim because the Council, business owners and landlords all owe a duty of care to visitors who may slip, trip or fall in these places. Accidents may occur by slipping on some grapes on the supermarket floor, slipping on spilt water in a shop, falling down an exposed manhole in a train station or tripping on an uneven paving slab.

We believe that one of the main reasons people claim following an accident like this is because these accidents often cause serious injuries such as broken bones and nasty soft tissue injuries which initially often present themselves with swelling such as a swollen ankle.

Due to the injuries these accidents often cause, it leaves the injured person unable to return to work for some time and/or require a lot of assistance around the house, which is not only a source of great frustration but can cause serious financial hardship.

At Aequitas Legal, we understand the distress this causes and is the reason why our Solicitors are all very skilled in understanding and assessing the extent of your losses to enable you the best chance of maximising the recovery of these.

"A star in the making"

I’d just like to give a very positive feedback to Ansa Rashid took on my case & finally got things moving. Before that I had Susan Mason who never answered my calls or emails & the case was ongoing still 3 years on. Ansa took over, got things moving & even through her busy day rang me mostly every week, sometimes on the phone an hour or so. I can not fault this woman she is amazing at her job. Very professional, caring, trustworthy & motivational. Plenty of times I wanted to to throw the towel in but she just wouldn’t let me give up. The case took 4 years in the end & even though we didn’t win I’d still recommend her to everyone. Thank you Ansa you are a star In the making

" ‘in-Case’ app makes things so simple"

I was involved in an accident which was not my fault, and was recommended to use Aequitas Legal. From the start, the whole journey with the team was both efficient, professional and sophisticated, with everyone essentially making the process so easy. Their ‘in-Case’ App made simple things like documents and letters so accessible, and meant I could access any import documents at anytime in seconds. I first spoke to Sucheet, who was the gentleman in charge of the company, who explained how everything would work, and pointed me in the direction of Connor, who would be my main liaison during the case. Together, they both ensured I was given the best advice, and seamlessly helped me through the case, which was concluded with a positive outcome! I could not recommend this company more, and will always be my go-to firm.

"Amazing determination"

I was amazed on how determined the team were in seeing my case through. If you are looking for a reliable, easy and transparent team to handle your case, here they are. I would like to thank Somia who I believe either led or coordinated my case for doing a fantastic job in both seeing the case through and communication.

"Professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply"

Highly recommend Aequitas who have recently dealt with my successful case. Special thanks to James Sloane who made the process much easier ; very professional, friendly and happy to explain everything simply. Also very encouraging and supportive with regular updates as well as spot on with getting paperwork and documents organised.
For someone like myself who has never been involved in a legal process I'm delighted with how my case was handled with this company.
