Claims for a slip or trip caused by poorly maintained flooring

Slips and trips account for the majority of personal injury claims in the UK today, many of which could easily have been avoidable if the correct health and safety measures had been put in place. Whether you’re in a public area such as a supermarket or a café, or if you are in the workplace, then it is important that the appropriate risk assessments are taken care of in order to eliminate any hazards such as water leaks and other wet surfaces. If you are unfortunate to suffer from an injury while slipping and you suspect that these precautions have not been put in place, then you could look to seek compensation as a means of recouping any damages you have endured.

Where might I look to make a claim?

Slipping or tripping on a poorly maintained floor can be quite a painful experience and as such you could be entitled to make a claim. Some common examples of where you could claim include:

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left concussed

·         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.

Who could I look to claim against?

If you find that you have been left with injuries after slipping on poorly maintained flooring then it is important to take note of what happened as it may help you in the future. In cases such as this there would likely be a number of people who could be at fault, but the most likely person would be either the owner of the building or a manager as they have failed to maintain an acceptable level of health and safety. 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.
