Nasty tripping and slipping injuries in the workplace often arise as a result of the negligence or breach of legal duty of an employer.
Employers owe many legal duties to keep employees safe in the workplace and free from tripping and slipping hazards and so often it is possible to make a successful claim for compensation.
The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) report that over a third of all major injuries reported each year are caused as a result of a slip or trip (the single most common cause of injuries at work).
Employees who are hurt in tripping and slipping accidents often fear that it was their own fault for not looking where they were going and so believe that they cannot claim. However, the law protects accident victims and makes allowances for the fact that we cannot all watch our step every moment of the day and we are entitled to expect walkways to be free of tripping hazards and slippery patches.
