What Is The Slips, Trips And Fall Claim Time Limit In Scotland?

You typically have a 3 year window to make a slip, trip or fall claim, from the date of the incident.

The time limit has a few exceptions which are as follows:

• A child below 16 years of age - their time limit begins the day they turn 16, up to their 21st birthday. Alternatively, a parent or a guardian can make the claim on their behalf.

• Claimants who have suffered severe brain trauma that render them psychologically incapable, have no time limit. They could also have an official litigation friend, make the claim for them.

Solicitors advise claimants to take the shortest time possible to make a claim, since early knowledge can help in gathering crucial evidence before it disappears. Also, there are fixed legal processes for slips, trips, and fall solicitors, including evaluations that can be affected by the time limit.

Everyday We Help The People Of Scotland Claim What They Deserve

Here are just some of the people we've helped this year, using our Claims Management process.

Mike's Story...

I tripped on a piece of broken pavement in my local Borough. My injuries required surgery and although I am retired, I still wanted my local council to take responsibility for their negligence and pursued a personal injury claim with Nevis Beck. They were very professional throughout the whole process and managed to get me fair compensation without any hassle or complications due to their experience in dealing with compensation claims like mine. I would highly recommend them to anyone who has suffered an injury through no fault of their own!

Jane's Story...

I recently suffered an injury at work that was caused by my colleagues carelessness, and I was out of work for six months as a result. As soon as I hired Nevis Beck, they were incredibly helpful, contacting my employer on my behalf and keeping me up to date with the progress of my claim every step of the way. In the end, they won me an excellent settlement from my employer, which will allow me to take further time off work to fully recover, without worrying about money – something that would have been very difficult if it weren’t for their help.

What Should I Do After I've Had A Slip, Trip Or Fall?

Slips, trips and fall accidents may be embarrassing, shocking and produce many unpleasant feelings. This usually confuses people as they don't know what to do or who to turn to. Also, people are unaware that they can be compensated for such accidents, if they were someone else's fault. Many people even get up and go about their day with a minor injury, they could have been compensated for.

After a slip, trip or fall, it is important to do the following if you can:

• Record the time, date, location and weather conditions of the particular day.
• Gather photographic evidence of the area where the incident took place and its surrounding. This may show poor lighting or lack of warning signs.
• Ask for help from passers-by, customers, workers or anyone who may offer it. Some may be willing to testify to help support your claim.
• Keep a record of your injury details, preferably in an injury diary that'll indicate your recovery process.

You should then seek a reliable solicitor and provide them with the information recorded, to assess if you can successfully claim slips, trips or fall compensation.

Who Pays Your Slips, Trips Or Fall Compensation?

The insurance company of a business, employer, facility or premises, will pay your slip, trip or fall compensation. Generally, slips, trips or falls happen due to the negligence of companies, industries, businesses, landlords or local councils.

The law requires that businesses and companies take out an insurance cover, that protects them from claims made against them. Employers for instance, must be covered by an employer's liability insurance. This means for any slip, trip or fall compensation claim you claim against your employer, it will have a better chance of being successful. The employer is never left with a bill they can't pay.

It is unlikely that you will get into an argument or affect a relationship with any landlord or employer, as their insurance pays the slips, trips or fall compensation claim.

Some insurance companies may attempt to pay you early compensation. Our solicitors will help you, to ensure the settlement you receive is worthwhile.
