Our personal injury solicitors will advise you how to best pursue your claim.

If you have suffered a slip, trip or fall because of a hazard or defect that wasn't your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your personal injury and financial losses incurred as a result of the accident.

These types of accidents usually fall into the following categories

Accidents on roads and pavements - your local council has a legal duty to maintain the roads and pavements to a reasonable standard. They will have public liability insurance to cover any compensation claims.

Accidents in shops - shopkeepers have a legal duty to ensure the safety of their customers whilst on their premises, including car parks.

Accidents in other places - places that are accessible to the public are also covered by laws to protect the public from suffering injuries.

What should I do after the accident?
There are a number of practical things you can do at the accident scene, which will help any potential compensation claim you later make.
If you are unable to do so at the time, return as soon as you can, or ask a friend if they can do the following:

Photograph the scene of the accident and anything else that may be significant, such as the floor surface and any defective coverings or holes, the clothing and shoes you were wearing, any visible warning signs relating to the defect. Also take pictures of your injuries, if they are visible and take further pictures if they worsen.

Write down the names and contact details of any witnesses who saw the accident happen, or saw the defect.

If the accident happened in a public place, make sure you report it to a manager and ensure they write it in their accident book.

Get some medical advice straight away, tell your doctor exactly what happened and make sure that it is documented.
What compensation will I receive?

By pursuing a claim for compensation with Coles Miller Claims UK, we will help you to recover:

  • Compensation for personal injuries
  • Loss of income, both past and future
  • Expenses incurred as a result of the accident (e.g. medication, travel expenses etc.)

Here at Coles Miller we have a specialised team who will ensure that you receive compensation which reflects your injuries and financial losses incurred as a result of the accident. We recognise the financial difficulties that you may face following an accident at work, and wherever possible, we will obtain interim payments to help you until you are fit enough to return to work.

How much will it cost me to make a claim?
Coles Miller Solicitors offer a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement, meaning you pay nothing whether you win or lose your claim.
What is No Win No Fee?
A ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement, which can also be known as a conditional fee agreement, gives you security and peace of mind when making a personal injury claim.
How much is my claim worth?
In most cases the amount of damages you receive will be made up of two elements:

General Damages: these are awarded for the injury sustained and for the pain and suffering and ongoing disability associated with that injury. The amount depends upon such factors as the nature and severity of the injury, the period of recovery and the outlook for the future. General damages are assessed in reference to the medical report on your condition and comparing that report to previously decided cases.

Special Damages: essentially these are your out-of-pocket expenses arising from the accident and includes such things as loss of earnings, medical expenses and travel expenses.
How long do I have to make a claim?
Under English law, in most cases that time limit is three years from the date of the accident giving rise to your injury or the date of knowledge (if later) of the injured person.

These time limits do not apply to children (who can proceed at any time before their 21st birthday) and people who are unable because of mental incapacity of managing their legal affairs (may differ for a defective product).
