Slips And Trips Compensation Solicitor

If you have been injured on someone else's property, for example you fell at the supermarket or tripped on a footpath, Benjamin Roberts Solicitors will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.

We represent clients locally — in Halifax, Bradford, Huddersfield and the surrounding areas.

'Slip-and-trip' cases are never routine. Local authorities and owners of supermarkets, pubs and other places where accidents are likely to happen believe many claims are unjustified — so they defend these cases vigorously. A specialist like Graham Roberts at Benjamin Roberts Solicitors in Halifax will protect your legal position.

Unlike claims management firms, we take the time to investigate your claim fully, speaking to local witnesses about the cause of the accident and actively monitoring how any defect on a road or other surface is maintained following your accident. This approach guarantees you the best chance of success. It is why we have achieved so many high settlements in this type of case over the years.

Accidents On Public Property

Councils must maintain public property so as not to cause a hazard that could cause an accident. This duty extends to:

  • Roads
  • Pavements
  • Pathways in playgrounds and parks
  • Publicly accessible areas in council owned leisure centres and other facilities

We regularly pursue claims for highway defects against public authorities where our clients have suffered injuries resulting from:

  • Potholes on road surfaces
  • Dilapidated and uneven footpaths
  • Missing kerbstones
  • Uneven flagstones
  • Slippery road, pavement and path surfaces caused by spillages and other dangerous substances

Accidents On Privately Owned Property: Occupiers Liability Claim

Private businesses owe a duty to visitors and even trespassers. Places where this duty exists include:

  • Supermarkets
  • Pubs and restaurants
  • Retail units
  • Office car parks and other work-related locations
  • Privately run gyms and other sports facilities

Injuries commonly result from:

  • Boxes and other tripping hazards
  • Surfaces made slippery by snow, ice and moss
  • Poorly maintained or faulty fittings
  • Dilapidated flooring
  • Concealed steps
