Oakwood are delighted to help clients after they have suffered from a slip trip or fall; if you require their experienced team after an accident to claim compensation we can help.
Mrs A from Newton le Willows was 35 when she was the victim of a trip in a public place. She tripped over an obstruction which was present on the path along which she was walking.
Our client suffered extensive bruising after her accident and she took some time to recover fully. She is much more wary now when she goes out anywhere and she constantly checks for obstructions when she is out in public places.
Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.
If you have been involved in a slip trip or fall which has caused you injuries after an accident either at work or in a public place Oakwood can help you to make a claim for financial compensation for the injuries you have sustained.
Slips trips and falls are probably the most common injuries we at Oakwood deal with; our solicitors see lots of cases where clients have been hurt when an employer has done or not dealt with an issue causing harm.
Harm is caused by either the action or sometimes the inaction of the employer. Some actions which could be considered harmful to employers could include an employer removing a safety guard for cutting equipment thus increasing the likelihood for an accident to occur. An inaction causing harm could be something as simple as an employer not replacing a mat by the entrance to the building and this causing a slip or trip. Another inaction which frequently occurs is employers not insisting that warning signs are in place when liquids are spilt on the floor.
If as an employee you feel that your employer has failed to either act or they have been negligent by an inaction which could reasonably have been predicted to cause an accident then you can take legal action to get compensation. Oakwood can provide detailed legal advice on the circumstances of your case.
