Claims for slips and trips caused by negligent health and safety

If you have been injured as a result of negligent health and safety then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Slipping and tripping are two of the most common injuries that you could encounter throughout you daily life and if you suspect negligence has played a part in this you by look to seek damages, especially if there is a lack of health and safety in place. Whether you have tripped on a loose paving stone, a wet floor or any other type of object then you could end up being forced to have treatment in hospital and potentially miss out on work which could prove to be quite costly for you.

Where might I look to make a claim?

Slipping or tripping can be a very painful experience that may require you to undergo hospital treatment, but if you feel this could have been avoided then you could look to seek compensation. Some examples of where a claim could be made include:

·         Claims if you have tripped on a wet surface

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left concussed

·         Claims if you have tripped on an uneven surface

·         Claims if you have damaged muscle/ligaments.

Who could be at fault in this situation?

There are a number of people who could potentially be at fault in a situation such as this, whether it is a local council, a store manager or perhaps even your boss – it all depends on the circumstances of when and how it happened. If you have suffered as a result of someone else’s mistake then you shouldn’t have to face the consequences alone, so making a claim for compensation could be the best way to recoup any losses you have incurred. Regardless of where this incident occurred it is important that the correct health and safety measures are in place to prevent any injuries from happening in the first place.
