Accidents Involving Icy Surfaces

Navigating sub-zero temperatures, and the ice that comes with it, often presents difficult conditions underfoot.

Not only that, it makes moving around much trickier with the potential for slips resulting in injury more prevalent.

If you were to sustain injury after slipping on an untreated surface, you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

Can you claim?

If you’ve slipped on an untreated surface and suffered injury, you could claim for personal injury compensation - this does depend on the circumstances of the accident and the location.

If your accident took place in an ‘open to the public’ car park – a supermarket or shop, for example – then accountability may fall on the business that owns it. There’s a reasonable assumption that the business should treat those surfaces regularly to mitigate the risk of members of the public slipping and hurting themselves. That’s particularly true if the forecast is for low temperatures and they fail to treat surfaces that see regular footfall.

If they don’t and you were to fall, liability could be assigned to them for failing to provide a sufficient duty of care.


I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for your highly professional and competent services, provided in both a friendly and accessible manner by Esther.



What can you claim for?

If the circumstances of the accident dictate you can make a claim, you may be able to claim for:

  • Personal injury compensation – This covers the financial side of recovery from the injuries sustained. It can pay for relevant medical treatment.
  • Loss of earnings – If you’re unable to work because of the accident, you can claim for the earnings you’ll miss out on as a result.
  • Out of pocket expenses – Other expenses that may be incurred can be claimed back, including travel costs for medical appointments, damaged products as a direct result of the accident, like a replacement phone, and other expenses that can be discussed with our team.
