Wet floors are the number one cause of accidents at work but they don’t need to be. That’s why you usually see ‘hazard’ signs displayed whenever a floor is being mopped or cleaned – to prevent accidents from happening. However when carelessness or negligence occurs and these signs are not displayed or are removed before the floor is dry, an accident could occur which could lead to serious injury.
Slipping on a wet floor at work could cause injuries such as:
- A slipped disc or pulled ligament or tendon in your back
- Neck or shoulder injuries
- Head injuries
- Broken bones
- Strains and sprains
If you’ve been injured after slipping on a wet floor at work, Accident Advice Helpline believe you should be compensated – after all, the accident wasn’t your fault.
Recovering from your injuries
Obviously after being injured, your first priority is to get any treatment you need and make a full recovery, but what if that hasn’t been possible? A ligament injury which has left you limping or a back injury which makes it impossible for you to return to work can seriously impact your health and happiness – not to mention your finances. If you’re struggling to pay the mortgage after suffering a slip injury at work, you should seriously consider claiming personal injury compensation.
