Slips are not uncommon in the workplace, but if they are caused by poor flooring or the direct negligence of another staff member, you could look to make a claim for compensation against anyone who has caused you injury. 

What could potentially happen as the result of a Slip at Work?

Slips in the workplace can be dangerous and the injuries that you could sustain can range from minor injuries to quite serious injuries depending on your fall. If you take a simple trip within the workplace then you could sustain basic sprains and fractures, but if you slip down a stairwell or a slip leads on to you falling from a height, you could find that you sustain rather serious injuries including head and neck injuries which could leave you requiring a great deal of rest and rehabilitation. 

What are some common examples of where I could consider a claim?

Compensation claims for negligence can be made in a number of different situations, some common examples where you may consider a claim include:

  • Claims for slips in a dangerous area which hasn't been signposted
  • Claims for slips down poorly lit stairwells
  • Claims for slips in poorly lit areas
  • Claims for falls from a height
  • Claims for slips over substances which haven't been cleared away.
