More evidence ‘no win no fee' claims are moving to Slips, Trips and Falls as PPI callers question these types of incidents
More evidence ‘no win no fee' claims are moving to Slips, Trips and Falls as PPI callers question these types of incidents.
Last year it was reported by the ABI there was a 75% increase in fraudulent Slip, Trips and Falls claims, driven by no win no fee management firms.
We at SlipTest believe that Slip, Trips and Falls claims will continue to ramp up with more evidence this type of incident seems to be a focus for ‘no win, no fee’ firms. Our Business Development Manager took a call from a PPI company last week and when he answered he didn’t have any payment protections claims to make, the caller then asked ‘have you had any slips, trips or falls as we can help you chase compensation for these also’.
Looking at various ‘no win no fee’ websites, many companies now have a page dedicated to claiming against Trips, Slips and Falls too. With Shopping Centres, Hospitals and Schools regularly being given as examples of places these incidents could happen in.
We hear stories all the time and it seems that some companies pay the compensation if under a threshold of between £1500-£3000 but these claims and fraudsters are cottoning on to this. Claims can add up and pay outs are completely unnecessary in many cases. If you consider SlipTests start from as little as £495 depending on the site and work involved, just one claim could cost you 6 times this amount.
We generally find if a slip testing certificate is in place this is enough to deter fraudsters and is a good way of protecting your bottom line as well as fulfilling a duty of care.
