    How to claim slippery floor compensation

    Slippery floors can be a real hazard in any public place. In fact, slips, trips and falls are the most common causes of accidents in the UK – and if you have been injured after slipping on a wet floor, you could claim slippery floor compensation. Whether you have slipped on a floor which has been recently cleaned at work, or have suffered injuries after slipping on a floor that was cleaned using the wrong solutions (leaving it slippery and dangerous), you could have a viable personal injury claim. Don’t let expensive legal fees put you off making a claim, as Accident Advice Helpline’s professional lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee** basis, so anybody can afford to make a claim for slippery floor compensation with us.

    Oops, there she goes

    It can be pretty embarrassing slipping on a wet floor in public – but sometimes embarrassment is the lease of your problems. How about if you’ve been injured after a slip on a wet or slippery floor? You could suffer minor injuries such as cuts and bruises, or you could be seriously injured. Back and shoulder or neck injuries are commonly sustained after slipping, and back injuries in particular can be difficult to treat and take a long time to heal. Or perhaps you have broken your ankle or leg after falling at an awkward angle.

    You may even have suffered head or facial injuries if you have hit your head as you fell. Whether you’ve slipped on a wet floor in a restaurant, nightclub or shopping centre or have been the victim of a shiny floor at work, you could claim compensation if you feel that somebody else is to blame for your accident.

    Keeping the public safe

    Wet floor warning signs should always be displayed whenever floors are being cleaned, to reduce the risk of accidents happening. But there have been cases where cleaners have used the wrong type of cleaning product on wooden or laminate floors, making the surface extra-slippery and leading to accidents. In cases like these, the building owner could be to blame. If you’re injured after a slip at work, your employer could be held liable.

    If you’re unsure who is to blame for your accident, a quick call to Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 will let you find out if you have a viable claim for compensation. There’s no obligation to proceed with a claim and you can ask any questions you have about the claims process.
