    Personal Injury Solicitors in Isle of Sheppey

    If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Isle of Sheppey, then you may have been injured by a slip, trip or fall as these accidents can take place virtually anywhere. According to figures from the Health and Safety Executive, slips and trips account for a third of all reported major injuries.

    Slips, trips and falls

    Some people may believe that slips and trips are an inevitable part of life, but many could be avoided if owners of premises took their responsibilities seriously. Any spillage should be cleaned up immediately and there should be hazard signs warning people of the danger of a wet or slippery floor. Pools of rain water or ice should be cleared from the entrance to any public building to prevent accidents occurring. Signs should also warn people that there is a step so that they are aware of a possible danger. Such signs should be in a prominent position so that they can be clearly seen and understood.

    It is necessary for the decks on board a ship or boat to be covered with anti-slip coating, and matting and systems in a public building or a workplace should be effective and non-slip. Some employers provide shoes or boots which are designed so that they can help prevent slips and trips if employees regularly work on treacherous surfaces.

    Any accident which occurs in a workplace should be reported and detailed in the accident book along with the names and addresses of witnesses. The same is true if you slip, trip or fall in any public place. Any accident which occurs in the workplace should be reported in accordance with the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995 (RIDDOR).
