Slip Trip Fall Accidents
Slip trip fall accidents as the name suggests encompasses all types of slip trip or fall on public and private land. You might trip on a broken paving stone or slip on an icy car park.
The Occupiers Liability Act 1957 section 2 sets out the duty of an occupier of private land (the person who lives in, controls or owns a premises) to keep lawful visitors safe, which includes not leaving any hazards which could cause slip trip fall accidents. http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts1957/pdf/ukpga_19570031_en.pdf
The Occupiers Liability Act 1984 provides for protection to users of an occupier's land by someone other than a lawful visitor. This includes keeping trespassers safe from obvious dangers of slip trip fall accidents. http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts1984/pdf/ukpga_19840003_en.pdf
