    How to claim office slip compensation

    Have you ever slipped over for some reason? A slip may not sound like the most complex of accidents, but it can be bad enough to result in a nasty injury for you if you’re unlucky. For example you might end up slipping on ice outside your workplace and suffer a broken wrist. You might alternatively slip over inside the building, because the floor in the canteen was slippery and covered in food and drink that hadn’t been cleaned up.

    As you can see, suffering an injury that results from a simple slip can be just as painful as other injuries that might sound more serious. As such, it should come as no surprise to learn that office slip compensation might be payable in some situations where proof of negligence exists to back that claim up.

    Injuries caused by a simple slip

    When you slip over, you may have little to no time to do anything about it. You will instinctively put your hands out in front of you to try and make the fall less painful, but this may not always succeed in happening. You might end up falling awkwardly and breaking your fingers, one or more bones in your hand or even your wrist. Elbow and shoulder injuries are not out of the question, and injuries to your knee and feet may not be impossible either.

    Obviously it is far better to avoid slipping over in the first place. Whoever owns the business will be responsible for paying attention to all the health and safety laws surrounding that particular business premises. If they do not do this properly, there could be a chance for them to be proven negligent if someone is injured while slipping over at work.

    Try and get office slip compensation now

    If you’ve slipped over in an office in the last three years, compensation could be a possibility. You don’t have to work in the office to try and claim either – if you were there on official business or you were visiting in some other capacity, you should still look into making a claim.
