Slips Trips and Falls

According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics trips and falls are some of the most common types of accidents, making up over a third of all major injuries. They are also the single most common cause of major work injuries in the UK.

Accidents at work might sound minor, but can have major consequences, particularly if you become unable to work.

Where do trips and falls happen?

Trips and falls are known to be common causes of work injuries; in fact they can and do happen in a range of different places. Slippery floors, uneven pavements and unexpected obstacles in walkways are all potential hazards which can cause trips and falls, and these can occur almost anywhere.

For example, compensation claims are sometimes made following trips and falls in;

  • Shops and supermarkets
  • Restaurants
  • Public pavements
  • Outside public buildings
  • Council-owned buildings and sites
  • Your workplace

Wherever a trip or fall occurs, if the accident was caused by someone else's negligence then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim for their injuries.

Preventing trips and falls

Many people do not realise that the people in charge of public areas, such as councils, shop owners and restaurant owners, have what's known by solicitors as a 'duty of care' to take reasonable steps to prevent injuries from occurring on their property, trips and falls included. If they fail in that duty of care then they are liable to pay work accident compensation to the victim.
