Claims against an employer for failing to maintain the standards of walkways

It is the responsibility of your employer to provide you with safe working conditions – and that extends to company premises too – because without it you could end up being involved in a serious incident. If you have injured yourself on a poorly maintained walkway on company premises then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation, which in turn could be used to help you recover any losses that you have incurred.

Where might I look to make a claim?

It is important that walkways are maintained to a high standard as they are constantly in use, so if this hasn’t been the case then you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims if you have slipped on a wet surface

·         Claims if you tripped on an uneven surface

·         Claims against a lack of signposting

·         Claims if there is no appropriate warnings in place

·         Claims if you have broken a bone.

Who could be at fault here?

If you have injured yourself while walking along a walk way on company grounds, then you may be able to make a claim against your employer for failing to maintain an adequate level of health and safety. It is their responsibility to ensure that all walkways on company premises are safe and secure, so if this hasn’t been the case and you have been injured as a result, then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence. A poorly maintained walkway can be very hazardous and cause you to have a number of injuries including, broken bones, cuts and grazes, and head injuries.
