Tripping and slipping cases form a large part of the personal injury lawyers practice. Not all cases are straight-forward, many involve complex questions of law engaging various legal disciplines.

The APIL Guide to Tripping and Slipping Cases is intended as 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 gives detailed guidance on the applicable procedure, together with precedent material.

This work (previously published, by Sweet & Maxwell, as Tripping and Slipping: A Practitioner’s Guide) will take account of important changes principally to the substantive law, especially in relation to the 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 defence).
