Slipping on spillages or wet surfaces are the most frequent causes of slips, trips and fall accidents. This could be in public, or in the workplace, and depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Slips, trips, and falls in public places are common and are likely to be at the fault of your local council, whom you may be able to make a claim against. Another example of your local council being at the fault of a slip, trip or fall, is when citizens trip and fall over faulty pavements. This could be bumps and cracks in the road, unclosed sewers, etc. Scenarios such as the ones listed show your local council’s negligence, by not practicing health and safety in their community.
Having a slip, trip or fall in the work place could be at the fault of your employer and if so, you could be eligible to claim against your employer. As an employer, it is your duty if care to ensure that all of your employees are safe, and without risk of injuring themselves whilst at work. Therefore, obtaining an injury through a slip, trip or fall in the work place, shows that the employer is not practicing his/her duties of care effectively, and is because of this, put at blame.
In order to pursue a claim for compensation, an assessment will have to be carried out to prove the causes and severity of your injuries. You will likely be asked to provide sufficient medical evidence of your injuries, and as much information and detail as possible, of the accident of which you gained your injuries. All aspects and costs of your injuries will be put into consideration, when deciding upon a settlement for your compensation. This will include factors such as, if you have taken any time off work as a result of your injuries, your pain and suffering, any medical needs and rehabilitation that you require etc.
