APIL Guide to Tripping and Slipping Cases

By Charles Foster, Ben Bradley

In the UK, tripping and slipping cases form a large part of a personal injury lawyer's practice. Not all cases are straight-forward. Many involve complex questions of UK personal injury law, engaging various legal disciplines. This book is a one-stop text covering all the legal disciplines that can come into play in a trip or slip case. It covers all the relevant areas of law - local government, landlord and tenant, occupier's liability, highways, factories, and health and safety at work - and it gives detailed guidance on the applicable procedure, together with precedent material. APIL Guide to Tripping and Slipping Cases takes account of important changes principally to the substantive law, especially in relation to the UK's Highways Act 1980, such as Jones v Rhondda Taff Cynon County Borough Council (on reasonable foreseeability under s 41, HA 1980), DTER v Mott MacDonald (on accumulation of water), and Atkins v Ealing LBC (on statutory defense).
