Unfortunately accidents at work can and do happen, but if you have suffered injury due to a slip trip or fall and it wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

According to documents released by the HSE, slips, trips and falls are the most common cause of injury in the workplace, making up over half of all reported injuries in 2012/13. Thankfully a quick slip or trip can be shrugged off, but sometimes the consequences can be deadly.

At Freeclaim, we deal with many accident at work claims every day and understand that a slip, trip or fall at work can seriously injure a worker and leave their families in financial strife should they be unable to work.

It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure your working environment is safe and any tools, machinery or safety equipment is up to standard and appropriate. However, it is also your responsibility to raise any issues regarding health and safety.

It’s vital that you do everything you can to ensure you are working safely, this is of course to avoid injury, but also to ensure you are covered should you wish to claim against your employer if an accident does happen.
The Health and Safety Executive found the following:

Unfortunately accidents at work can and do happen, but if you have suffered injury due to a slip trip or fall and it wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
