    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Accident Lawyer in East Dorset

    Many of us are familiar with slips and trips, and the injuries that they cause – when you fall, you’re likely to get injured, and the injuries you suffer can be quite severe if the surface on which you fall is hard.

    Where do slips, trips and falls happen?

    Many of us are familiar with slips, trips and falls in public places, such as parks, and other places, such as shops and entertainment venues.

    But you can also suffer slips, trips and falls at work. If this happens to you, you could claim compensation through an accident lawyer in East Dorset. Accident Advice Helpline has a whole team of ‘no win, no fee’ lawyers, and a hotline that’s open 24/7, so we’re the ideal law firm to choose – and we’re one of the largest in the UK.

    Why you could claim for a slip or trip and fall at work

    Your employer has a duty to ensure you have a safe working environment. If you get injured in a slip or trip and fall at work, it could be because your employer has failed to ensure your safety.

    All employers should have employers’ liability insurance, which they take out for the very purpose of paying out in the event of a claim for injury being made – so you don’t have to worry about being treated differently when you go back to work, or, worse, being sacked. Such unfair treatment could land your employer in court.

    Preventing slips, trips and falls in the workplace

    If you’re worried about getting injured through a slip or trip and fall at work, here are some tips on prevention:

    • Keep floors dry and clean – if you see a spillage, clear it up
    • Remove obstacles such as boxes and papers from your immediate workspace
    • Don’t trail cables across areas where people walk
    • Report any near misses to your employer – it might flag up a problem area to be addressed

    If you do need a solicitor, don’t forget to call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible.
