Tripping and slipping cases form a large part of the typical personal injury lawyer's practice. Not all cases are straightforward; many involve complex questions of law. The APIL Guide to Tripping and Slipping Cases is a one-stop text. It covers all the legal disciplines that can come into play in a tripping or slipping case - Local Government, Landlord and Tenant, Occupier's Liability, Highways, Health and Safety at Work, and so on. It gives detailed guidance on the applicable law, procedure and practice. It has a big library of precedents, from checklists and letters through to Statements of Case. Most of the relevant guidelines are included as appendices, and the facts and principles of the key cases (often contained in inaccessible law reports) are distilled into case summaries. This work (previously published as Tripping and Slipping: A Practitioner's Guide) takes account of important recent changes to the substantive law, including Jones v Rhondda Taff Cynon County Borough Council (on reasonable foreseeability under s. 41 of the Highways Act 1980), DTER v Mott MacDonald (on accumulation of water), and Atkins v Ealing LBC (on the s. 58 statutory defence).
