Slip on water (wet floor) compensation claim

Although personal injuries can happen anywhere, in most situations there is a person at fault and in many situations these injuries could have been avoided if the correct precautions and safety measures had been taken. Spillages and dropped items can cause a range of potential hazards if they are not dealt with quickly, and this is especially true of liquids which can become slippery and dangerous if not wiped up, as a result you could slip and be left with serious injuries.

If you have been injured as the result of a wet floor surface then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any injuries you have sustained.

What injuries could I sustain from a wet floor?

Although slipping on a wet floor may seem like a relatively minor incident, you can sustain a number of fairly serious injuries from it and some of the injuries that you may choose to claim for include:

  • Head and neck injuries including brain damage, loss of memory and other injuries sustained from hitting your head on the floor
  • Sprains and strains of various ligaments and muscles
  • Broken bones and twists
  • Dental damage including chipped teeth.

Who could I make a claim against?

In general, if you have had a slip on a wet floor surface then you can claim against anyone whose negligence has led to that surface becoming wet. If you slip on private property then it could be the person who owns that property or the person who spilt the water and did not clean it correctly. It’s the responsibility of any private property owner to ensure that their property is safe for use at all times and immediate action must be taken to clean up any potential hazards. 

If the injury was sustained on public property then you could consider making a claim against the council if you feel that their negligence has led to your injuries.
