Claiming compensation as a result of poorly maintained walkways in the workplace

It is the responsibility of your employers to maintain the standards of the workplace, both inside and on the surrounding grounds, so if this has not been the case then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Walkways are important because they provide pedestrians with a safe route to their destination, avoiding cars and other hazards on the way, so if they have been left to deteriorate then this can result in you sustaining an injury. If this has been the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence, while a successful claim could help you recover any losses you have incurred.

What instances could I look to claim?

If you have been injured as a result of a poorly maintained walkway while on work premises, then you could look to seek compensation. Some examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Accidents involving potholes

·         Accidents as a result of poor signposting / warnings

·         Claims against a negligent employer

·         Claims if you have slipped or tripped

·         Accidents involving an uneven surface.

Who could I make a claim against in this situation?

There are a number of people who could be held responsible as a result of you injuring yourself on a faulty walkway, but if it occurs on company premises then it is likely that a claim against your employer would be acceptable. An incident such as this could be very painful and require you to undergo serious medical attention which can be both painful and costly, so making a successful claim for compensation could be the best way to recoup any losses you have incurred.
