The workplace can be dangerous if is it not appropriately organised and kept safe. The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 sets out the rules and regulations which should be adhered to, however unfortunately, there are often breaches of these regulations which can lead to accidents occurring.

There are a number of accidents which would fall into this category however a lot relate to employers failing to keep walkways clear of tripping hazards, such as boxes, pallets and plastic coverings, or slipping hazards such as recently mopped floors or spillages.

In these types of claims it is essential to establish what has caused the trip or slip and whether the employer could have reasonably been expected to keep the area clear.

If you have suffered a trip or slip at work it is important that you report your accident to your employer immediately so they can investigate the cause of the accident. Seek medical attention by a First Aider and get medical advice from your GP or local hospital.

If you are considering making a claim you get specialist advice from experts in this field. We have years of experience helping clients following trips and slips and work and could help you successfully make a claim.

We handle these claims on a No win, No Fee basis, meaning that if your claim is not successful, you will have nothing to pay. We want to reassure you that there are no financial risks in making your claim.

Remember, legal proceedings must be initiated within 3 years from the date of your accident. Failure to do this may result in your claim being time-barred and you may not be able to make a claim for compensation.
