“Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done on our behalf over these last few years. I really appreciate how thorough you have been, and also how helpful and supportive you have been towards us throughout. I couldn’t have hoped for a better outcome.” – Mr M
We have been working to get the compensation you deserve and each member of the team is highly specialised and has years of experience.
Most of our cases are dealt on a No win No fee agreement so there is no financial risk to you.
Slips, trips and falls may sometimes seem innocuous, but when you fall and suffer a significant personal injury because someone else with a duty of care to you has been negligent, it may be possible to make a claim for slipping and tripping accident compensation.
Of course, we all hold some responsibility to look out for dangers around us and act accordingly in our day-to-day lives, but slips and trips are often avoidable if those who should be making sure paths and walkways are clear are doing their jobs correctly.
For instance, entrances to buildings should have mats laid to soak up moisture from wet shoes. If mats are not put down and someone suffers a fall on the wet floor, it is possible that the owners and managers of the building may be liable for not providing a safe environment for those entering the building.
Likewise where carpets are present in a building, they should be well-maintained and laid properly, if a carpet comes loose or wears badly it could be a tripping hazard and an unsuspecting passer-by could easily suffer a fall.
Plus, building owners and facilities managers, and anyone who has workers and the general public on their premises, have a duty of care to maintain lighting levels in walkways and corridors, inside and out, so that users are able to see where they are going.
With Healys Solicitors you can be assured that you will receive a comprehensive legal service which is always client-focused, performed by experts, and offers a range of first-class legal and non-legal assistance to ensure you receive maximum compensation and the best possible care.
