About Claiming Compensation for Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries
The first step in making a claim for slip, trip and fall compensation is to speak to one of our experts and tell us about your accident and injuries. We will then assess your case with no obligation. We will also be able to tell you how successful your claim is likely to be and how much compensation you can get.
Slip, trip and fall accidents happen when you least expect it, either at work or in a public place. Slip and trip injuries range in severity, from light bruises to head and brain injuries. However serious your injuries you still might have had to take time off work resulting in lost pay or even no pay at all. One of the types of accidents at work claims we deal with are Falls from height. No matter where or how you were injured we have specialist solicitors ready to help.
Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents at Work
Sadly Slip, trip and fall accidents at work are quite common, and usually due to a lack of health and safety.
In 2016, falls from height accounted for a considerable amount of fatal work accidents. Accidents should and can be prevented so if you or someone you love has been injured in a no-fault accident, Unlucky will help you get the compensation and apology you deserve.
Anyone who has been injured regardless of employment status can claim compensation for a slip, trip and fall-related work accident. You can even make a claim if you were just a visitor when the accident happened.
Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents in Supermarkets and Shops
If you slipped or fell in a public place, shop or supermarket such as Coles, Woolworths, Aldi or Westfield the owners or occupiers of the premises have a duty of care to make sure you are kept safe at all times. If they have failed in their duty of care then you will more than likely be eligible to sue them for compensation.
We understand that Supermarket slip and falls can sometimes leave victims feeling embarrassed, which can then lead to them believing that the accident was their own fault. First of all, please realise that there is no need to feel ashamed, if you have suffered unnecessary pain and suffering, Unlucky will help you get the compensation and apology you deserve.

Slips, Trips and Falls on Roads and Pavements
Someone is responsible for maintaining every stretch of West Australian roads and pavements, and if you trip for instance, in a pothole or on a raised piece of footpath, it doesn’t mean you are entitled to compensation.
The Law in WA states that roads and pavements cannot always be in good condition. However, if we can prove that someone else was to blame for your accident or injury, then you may have grounds to make a claim.
If your slip, trip and fall happened on a council-owned property, we will help you make a compensation claim against the local council. It doesn’t matter why you were there if you were injured on their property you are entitled to make a claim.
Such councils include;
- City of Vicncent (Perth city)
- City of Stirling
- City of joondaup
- Town of Victoria Park
- City of Armadale
- and many more
