Claims against an employer for failing to maintain walkways during icy conditions

If you have been left with a serious injury after slipping on ice while on company property then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. As the conditions start to deteriorate, so to do the chances of your safety as the icy walkways make it quite difficult to maintain your balance – meaning that you are at risk of causing yourself a serious injury. It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that the workplace is safe for all employees, including the surrounding grounds, so if you feel this has not been the case you could look to claim against them.

Where might a claim be acceptable?

Injuring yourself during icy conditions can be quite painful and as such you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples of where you might look to claim include:

·         Claims against a negligent employer

·         Claims against a failure to adequately clear a road surface

·         Accidents caused by a failure to adequately sign a potentially dangerous road surface

·         Accidents which are caused by black ice

·         Claims against a lack of signposting or warnings.

Who might have been at fault in this situation?

A slip or trip on ice can result in a number of potential injuries such as bruising, broken bones or even head injuries, so if you have been affected by this then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. In general, if an incident such as this were to occur on company grounds then you would most likely make a claim against your employers as it is their responsibility to ensure the grounds are safe. If this has not been the case then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence.
