According to the Health and Safety Executive, slips and trips are the most common form of injury within the workplace, accounting for 40 per cent of all incidents.
Croftons Solicitors can help victims of slips and trips at work to make a claim.
Slip Or Trip Claims
If you are unfortunate enough to have suffered an injury due to a slip or trip at work, there is a good chance you will be eligible to receive compensation.
Your employer has an obligation to maintain a safe working environment, and if clear safety measures or warnings were not in place, it is likely they will be held accountable.
Your employer is responsible for the removal of trip hazards such as loose carpet or wires, as well as providing wet floor signs should they be required.
This includes the prompt removal of any spillages, as well as objects such as boxes that could obstruct walkways or corridors.
If evidence can be provided that your employer was to blame for the accident, you have three years from the date of your injury to proceed with a claim. Cases outside of this frame are ineligible for compensation.
