Slips & trips at work - accident compensation claims

A slip or a trip at work is one of the most common types of accident which can often occur through no fault of your own.

Our specialist solicitors understand that making a claim against your employer can be daunting and that you may be worried about the impact it could have on your employment, but  rest assured your employer should not treat you any differently as a result of a claim against them and, if they do, you should seek advice from an employment solicitor.

If you would like to speak to a member of a team following a slip, trip or fall at work which was caused by the negligence of your employer call us on 0203 816 0065 or complete our online enquiry form and we will contact you directly.

 

How do slips and trips at work happen?

Slips, trips and falls at work can be caused by a variety of reasons, including: 

  • Wet floors
  • Loose carpeting
  • Exposed wires
  • Uneven flooring
  • Dangerously slippery flooring
  • Damaged staircases

Your employer’s responsibility

Employers need to ensure that the right safety procedures are in place to prevent such an accident from occurring. As such employers need to make sure that:

  • Adequate risk assessments are put in place
  • Appropriate footwear and equipment is provided
  • The work station or work place is kept clean and free from hazards
  • Adequate signage is in place

Our specialist team have years of experience in handling compensation claims for people who have been injured following a slip or trip at work, so you will be in very good hands throughout the whole claim and we will keep you up to date with the progress of your claim.

We understand how a slip or a trip at work can affect your life, in particular your day to day activities, therefore our aim is to ensure that we secure you the maximum compensation that you rightfully deserve.
