We’ve all slipped at some point in our lives, and most of us have probably seen someone else slip over at some point too. In fact, with social media we can see hundreds of people slipping in various videos if we want to.
Slips tend to occur where the surfaces are wet, places such as swimming pools or kitchens when the floors have been mopped or something has spilled. Most slips are not dangerous and we either don’t fall or we fall and get straight back up. Most of the people you see slipping in funny videos online are not seriously hurt and end up free from injury.
But, sometimes, a slip can lead to a painful fall which results in an injury. Slip injury claims may help you if you have been injured as the result of an accident where you have slipped, so if you have been a victim read on to see if we can help.
Slips can often be avoided by clear and correct signage. We are all familiar with the yellow wet floor signs which appear whenever someone has cleaned a floor or spilled something on the floor. Seeing a wet floor sign can prevent a bad slip by highlighting the potential danger to passers-by who may slow their pace down while walking over the slippery surface or they may even choose to walk a different way.
Slips can also be avoided by wearing correct footwear. If you work or visit somewhere where footwear is provided to keep you from slipping but for some reason the footwear was unavailable to you on the day that you slipped, you may be entitled to make a claim. Slip injury claims may help following an injury you’ve had after a slipping accident which wasn’t your fault.
