How Do Slips, Trips & Falls Happen?
Slips, trips or falls happen most commonly when the surface walked upon is wet or slippery. This can often be caused in the work place due to the negligence of another worker – most commonly when a floor has been cleaned and not dried properly. Signage must be provided when floors are cleaned as part of safety procedures, if this has not been provided then there has been a breach in the responsibility as an employer. Often slips, trips and falls can be avoided by keeping the work place tidy however it is possible to be left with serious injuries that prevent you from being able to work for extended periods of time.

How To Make A Trip, Slip Or Fall Claim
Gathering as much information and evidence as possible in the first instance will help your solicitor to build up a picture of the case and decide whether there is a slips, trips and falls claim. This can include witnesses, photographs and written down details of the event. If the slip, trip or fall happened due to factors beyond your control then there may be a case.
The extent of your pain and suffering that has been brought on by this should be detailed as it will help to determine how much compensation could be claimed for the accident and also the amount that may be required to help you medically in future.
The claim must be opened within three years of the event taking place. Claims can be anything from £1000 up to £200,000 depending on your case.
