    How to claim public toilet slip compensation


    If there is one thing you can be sure of in a public toilet, it is that the floor is going to be easy to mop. Very often it will either be tiled or finished with a hard-wearing vinyl floor that can be regularly mopped to keep it clean.

    While you would expect to see a clean floor in a public toilet, the cleaner has a duty of care to make sure that floor does not become a hazard for those using the facilities. For example, if they mop the floor they must use yellow warning signs once they are finished. These indicate the floor is wet and that anyone walking into or out of the toilets should take extra care to ensure they do not slip over.

    In what circumstances might public toilet slip compensation be paid?

    Compensation of this kind might be paid in circumstances where someone has slipped over because there were no warning signs in place on a wet floor. It is so very easy to lose your footing and to slip over on any wet floor – public toilets are just the same in this respect.

    The amount of public toilet slip compensation that may be issued could depend on how bad your injuries were in this situation. Sometimes you may get away with fairly minor injuries that would only require basic medical attention. On the other hand you could suffer a cut deep enough to require stitches, or perhaps even break a bone.

    Accident Advice Helpline can assist you in determining whether a claim is possible

    Slipping over in a public toilet is not an experience anyone would want to have. Thankfully most people use their local facilities – and ones elsewhere – without anything being amiss. However, there are circumstances where people may end up being hurt because of someone else’s negligence, and if this can be proven, there is a chance of compensation being paid.
