Trips, slips and falls can be extremely dangerous and can often cause serious personal injury, sometimes even life changing injuries.


United Kingdom – WEBWIRE – Thursday, March 27, 2014

An accident can happen at any time, anyplace, but if it is due to no fault of your own, you deserve to be compensated.

Trips, slips and falls can be extremely dangerous and can often cause serious personal injury, sometimes even life changing injuries. Freeclaim Solicitors are there to help you claim should you suffer injury at work due to the negligence for your employer or another employee.

Accidents caused by negligence in the workplace are a common occurrence and based on HSE (the Health and Safety Executive) statistics; workplace personal injury claims account for around 40% of cases. Employers have a legal responsibility to regularly assess potential dangers in the workplace and implement the appropriate measures that ensure their employees are working in a safe environment. Sometimes these measures are inadequate or ignored, and you, the employee may have suffered for it.

Common injury claims can involve quite simple but overlooked factors such as inappropriate work floors.  There are three important regulations for all employers:  The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSW Act), The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.

Workplace floors need to be suitable, in good condition and free from obstructions, to minimise the risk of trips, slips and falls. Failure to cordon off wet areas and exposed cables are just two examples of common causes of workplace trips, slips and falls that can lead to nasty injuries.
 
An accident can happen at any time, anyplace, but if it is due to no fault of your own, you deserve to be compensated.

Injuries in the workplace such as trips, slips and falls can sometimes force people to give up a job, leave them with limited mobility or greatly affect their livelihood. Freeclaim Solicitors can assess your case on a no win no fee basis and with a proven track record, help secure compensation.

Remember also your employer cannot dismiss you for making a workplace accident claim. All businesses by law must have insurance which covers them for accidents; therefore it is their insurer who will pay the compensation.

With over 25 years’ experience in injury claims in the workplace, Freeclaim’s specialist solicitors can ascertain as to whether your employer has failed to keep your working environment safe, and if so, help you claim compensation.
