Claiming compensation for trips in the workplace

Slips and trips account for the majority of incidents which occur in the workplace throughout the UK each year, yet despite this they are one of the simplest to avoid if the correct safety measures are put in place. There are numerous obstacles in place which could result in you tripping at work and if you are unfortunate enough to do so you could be forced to spend a prolonged amount of time in hospital care. It is the responsibility of your employers to ensure that all safety precautions are put in place to prevent things like this happening, but if you don’t believe that this is the case then you could be entitled to some compensation.

Where might I look to make a claim?

If you have tripped in the workplace and have been left needing hospital treatment, then you could look to seek compensation. There are a number of circumstances where a claim could be made, including:

·         Claims if you have tripped on a wet surface

·         Claims if you have tripped on an uneven surface

·         Claims if you have damaged muscle/ligaments

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left concussed

Who could be at fault in this situation?

In general, if you find that you have been left with injuries after tripping in the workplace then you would look to make a claim against your employer. It is their responsibility to provide you with safe working conditions and if you believe that they have been negligent in this role and your health has been put at risk as a result, then you could look to seek compensation from them. An unsafe working environment is unacceptable and you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if you have a trip, so taking your case to court and making a successful claim could help you recoup any losses you have incurred.
