Many people think that a whiplash injury can only be caused by a car accident however slips trips and falls frequently cause the same injuries; Oakwood Solicitors can provide an outstanding service for cases relating to a slip trip or fall and will support any compensation claim in the UK if the victim is not at fault.
67 year old Mrs W from Melton approached Oakwood Solicitors after she was injured during a fall in a shopping centre. The fall occurred when she slipped on food debris which had been left on the floor.
Busy shopping centres are unfortunately a high risk for slips and falls particularly during the middle of the day during the lunchtime period. This is due to the higher volume of shoppers being local workers who are eating their lunch whilst shopping and carelessly dropping their food and spilling their drinks. To make matters worse this lunchtime period is often when cleaners on site may go for their lunch break.
It is crucial that the management take these factors into consideration when conducting risk assessments. They should investigate procedures which can minimise this problem.
