There are numerous local government districts in the UK. Essex alone has several, and one of these is called Uttlesford. The main town in the area is Saffron Walden, but this is not the only one. People who consider claiming compensation in Uttlesford may do so for all kinds of reasons. For instance, some may have slipped over and caused themselves to suffer injuries that were caused through negligence.
Slipping over is easily done, and often it is because there is something slippery underfoot. It may not be easy to see a slip hazard, which is why they can be so dangerous. It sounds like such a simple accident to have, and in many ways it is. However, there are potentially nasty injuries that can result from an accident of this sort.
How can you slip over?
Slips can happen when the floor surface becomes slippery, either indoors or outdoors. The best example of an outdoor slip hazard would be when the floor is icy or frosty during the winter months. If paths in a public area or a car park are slippery, they should be properly gritted to ensure there is less chance of an accident occurring.
On the other hand, there could be something on the floor that presents a slip hazard. This could be spilled food or drink. Someone may even have come along and mopped the floor to clean it, but failed to do anything to alert others to this fact. A simple warning sign can negate the potential danger indicated by a wet floor.
