If you have suffered a slip, trip or fall in public that has resulted in an injury or illness, then you may be entitled to compensation.

Accidents can happen anywhere:

  • Shopping centres;
  • Supermarkets;
  • Car parks;
  • Sporting events;
  • Auditoriums;
  • Outdoor markets;
  • Airports;
  • Train stations; and
  • Other public places.

Generally, to be able to claim for compensation, you need to establish negligence on the part of the owner or occupier of the premises where your accident occurred. Indoor and outdoor spaces like the ones mentioned above must take reasonable steps to provide a safe environment for everyone who visits or uses them.

This includes regular monitoring and prompt cleaning of any spills or breakages, and generally maintaining a site free from hazards.

Slip, trip and fall accidents can be the result of a breakage or spillage that was not cleaned up promptly, or where the accident site was not signed up with adequate warnings. Trip hazards might include poor placement of floor mats, obstructions from repair work or product boxes, displays or other obstacles. Accidents can also occur because of poorly maintained spaces, especially escalators, stairs and railings.

Injuries sustained from slip, trip and fall cases can be serious, such as:

  • Hand or wrist injury;
  • Leg, ankle or foot injury;
  • Back, shoulder or neck injury;
  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Sprained or torn ligaments;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Head or brain injury;
  • Psychological injury or illness including PTSD, anxiety or depression.

Claiming Compensation for Slip, Trip & Fall in a Public Place

If you have sustained an injury or illness as a result of a slip, trip or fall in a public place, then you know that it can substantially affect your life.

At first, you may not realise the extent of your injuries. This could be due to shock or the nature of your injury.

It is important that you seek medical attention immediately, and where possible, report the accident to a staff member or security guard.

Your next step should be to contact Lionheart Lawyers. We have more than 50 years of combined experience in successfully pursuing public liability claims and we are here to obtain the compensation you are entitled to.

Compensation claims for slip, trip and fall injuries may cover:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Loss of income if you are unable to work;
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses;
  • Ongoing medical treatment;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Domestic assistance for day-to-day tasks.

If your injury or impairment is permanent, then you may be entitled to make additional claims, including a TPD (total permanent disability) claim through your superannuation fund.

There are time limits associated with these types of compensation claims, so the sooner you contact us, the better.
