Trips, slips and falls can usually be avoided through common sense and effective safety management, but sometimes accidents will happen. It is your employers responsibility to carry out the appropriate risk assessments and safety checks to ensure their workplace is safe, but unfortunately not all employers are as thorough as they should be. If they fail to take the appropriate steps to ensure your safety and you are injured as a result, it's important to act now and get the compensation you deserve.

Serious Workplace Slips, Trips and Falls Injuries

Accidents can strike at any time, and although a slip, trip or fall can usually be shrugged off sometimes they can cause serious life changing injuries.

You may have been working on a building site and tripped over a loose flag. You may have slipped on a wet floor or you may have fallen from height due to loose handrails or scaffolding at work. There are many types of slip, trip and fall compensation claims but the most common and recurring issues our expert solicitors have to deal with everyday usually involve:

  • Tripping over trailing wires or damaged carpets
  • Tripping over Exposed oil pipes or tanks
  • Slips caused by leaking water, chemicals or oil
  • Falls due to faulty handrails, unsafe scaffolding

These are just examples of some of the issues brought to us by clients, and highlight the dangers employees face every day.
