Welwyn Hatfield is a borough of Hertfordshire. It is also referred to as one of the districts of local government. The name of Welwyn Hatfield comes from the two towns that are the chief settlements in the area – Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield. There are around 116,000 residents in the whole of the borough at the present time. Many residents work in a wide variety of jobs, but few have made an accident at work claim in Welwyn Hatfield for any reason.
Injuries in the workplace do happen – that’s why we have accident books. However, they are normally very minor in nature. Think of a paper cut or a splinter, for example – nothing more serious than that. There are of course exceptions to this, though thankfully they are uncommon.
Any floor surface can be slippery in the right circumstances – or in this case, the wrong ones. There is the potential for people to slip over in spillages or on a surface that is simply too slippery on its own. If something should have been done about the floor and nothing happened, the person who slipped and injured themselves could receive compensation.
Maybe you have experienced this sort of accident first-hand in your workplace. You could have been walking along and slipped on a highly-polished floor. Maybe it was waxed when it should not have been. Perhaps it was slippery because something was spilled on it and no one bothered to report it or clean it up.
Did you slip over at work?
If so, did you slip in the last three-year period? If you were injured as a result of that slip, you could be in a good position to make a compensation claim. While you can try and explore the possibilities of claiming on your own, it’s far easier to consult a professional personal injury lawyer who has already made many successful claims on behalf of other clients.
