Slips and trips claims are one of the most common types of claim personal injury solicitors deal with. Around 40% of all reported major injuries to employees in the UK are slips and trips at work, and they are the most common causes of injury to members of the public. In many cases, the victims of these accidents can claim slip and trip compensation – it is estimated that around 50% of all trips are caused by poor housekeeping.
Slip and Trip Claim at Work
A huge range of factors can lead to slips and trips, including slippery or uneven flooring, obstructions in hallways, poor footwear choices and failure to clean safely. These minor errors can lead to serious injuries – 95% of all major slips lead to broken bones, and injuries they result in, cost the UK’s economy £800 million every year. Employers must be aware of this hazard and take steps to protect their staff and the public from it. Risk assessments and proper management systems should help to control or eliminate this risk and when these are not implemented properly, victims can claim compensation for their personal injuries.
Slip and Trip Compensation
If you have suffered an injury in a slip or trip at work or anywhere else in an accident that wasn’t your fault, then speak to our slip and trip claim solicitors to make a claim and receive all the money you are entitled to. This could include lost wages, medical expenses, and travel costs. Your long-term prognosis and whether your injuries are likely to lead to recurrences will also impact your slip and trip compensation claim’s value. You should also be compensated for the impact the accident had on your quality of life – for instance, you may have experienced a lot of pain and suffering, or may be unable to continue participating in your favourite pastimes. Making a compensation claim will not just help your recovery – it will also prevent the same failings leading to another person’s injuries in the future. You should not worry about your job if you make a slip or trip claim at work – your employer is not allowed to fire you or treat you badly for claiming compensation, and they should have insurance which will cover the costs of your claim.
