Slipping Accident at Work

Slipping Accident at Work. You can look to claim compensation for your injuries and losses resulting from the incident. We can help you claim the compensation that you deserve.

The accident may have been as a result of:

  • spilled oil or water or other liquid
  • failure to treat ice and snow within works ground
  • inappropriate floor surface/covering

Your employer is required to provide you with a safe working environment and this includes ensuring that you can move around your place of work without slipping or falling due to spilled liquids or other hazards. It doesn’t matter if no one knows who made the hazard or failed to mop up or spilled the liquid, your employer is liable for the actions of their staff. So if you have an accident due to the negligence of a colleague you can bring your claim against your employer. This is known as vicarious liability and means that there will always be someone (usually your employer’s insurers) to pay any claim made against them. This is why they have compulsory insurance, so don’t feel bad about bringing your claim; you have sustained a loss and injury and it is your right to seek compensation.
