Compensation for tripping at work

There are a number of tight rules and regulations which govern the way that workplace safety should operate and most companies are bound on the way that they must look after their employees.

Although the workplace is a carefully guarded area, accidents can still happen through the negligence of another employee or even of the employer. Trips and falls can easily occur if items have been left lying around and they can be potential hazards to anyone who comes across them, especially if they are relatively out of sight.

If you have been left with injuries as a result of tripping or falling in the workplace, through the negligence of another person, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.

Where could I be injured tripping at work?

There are a number of situations where you could find yourself injured by tripping or falling in the workplace and some common occurrences of this include:

Trips over items which have been left lying around

Who could I claim against for any negligence?

If you have been injured in the workplace then the first person that you may consider making a compensation claim against is your employer.
