An Overview of Slips, Trips, and Fall Accidents
In most cases, workers will suffer injury with a slip, trip, or fall due to liquid spills on a slippery floor, a poorly organised work area, or low-visibility hazards.
Employers are required by law to adhere to Health and Safety guidelines but accidents can still happen with obstructed walkways or where carpets are not properly fitted.
Our slips and fall solicitors and lawyers are specialists in people make personal injury and accident compensation claims. We will need to establish that the accident was due to a company’s negligence.
Can You Claim for a Slip, Trip or Fall Compensation?
We will need to establish negligence though, so any witness statements or additional evidence you can gather will be key. We will also be required to have your injuries checked and validated by a doctor.
Causes of a Slip, Trip or Fall at Work
This typically happens where an employee trips over a trailing set of wires or cables in a corridor or obstructed walkway. Hazards such as this are one of the most frequent ways in which people are injured at work.
If you are worried making a personal injury claim against your employer, then please note that any compensation to you will be taken from an insurance policy. Your legal action will not directly affect your employer’s pocket.
