Trips, slips or falls in the work place from defective flooring, spillage or debris on flooring

Trips, Slips or Falls made up more than half of all reported injuries in the workplace in accordance with the HSE statistics which reported that these accidents made up 56% of all accidents.

30,716 workers had an accident at work between 2010 - 2011 from a Slip or Trip at Work in accordance with the HSE reported Statistics and this accounts for almost a third of all Work Injuries reported for 2010 - 2011.

Slipping and Tripping Accidents are most often caused by defective, uneven or irregular floor surfaces, including slopes, steps, and worn or torn carpeting that can cause trips and slips in the workplace.

Law Connect Solicitors are Experts in dealing with claims for Compensation for Trips, Slips or Falls in the Workplace as Employers often fail to provide adequate Risk Assessments of the hazards in the Workplace or provide Adequate Training to Employees on Health and Safety in the Workplace or simply fail to address obvious Defects in the Workplace.
