Have you slipped at work?
Although many offices are carpeted, in communal areas and lobbies, many buildings opt for tiles or marble floors. Whilst this type of flooring may be easier to keep clean, it isn’t necessarily safer for employees.
As tiles and marble flooring can become slippery very easily, employees and visitors may be likely to slip or fall as a result. Unfortunately, the weather may make this worse. If, for example, it’s raining outside, the floor may become wet as a result which could lead to an increased risk of injury.
Similarly, if something is spilt on the floor and it goes unnoticed, another member of staff could slip and hurt themselves as a result. Although most companies do employ support staff to maintain communal areas, if they don’t notice the problem quickly enough, an accident or injury could easily occur.
Luckily, many companies do try and prevent these types of injuries from occurring. For example, in bad weather they may place rubber mats by doorways to prevent the floor from becoming too wet. Whilst these steps can prevent injuries from occurring, they won’t stop every accident from taking place and people can still suffer harm as a result of a trip or fall in the workplace.
Can I make a compensation claim against my employer with expert injury solicitors in Warkworth?
Although most people assume that employers are liable for any injury which takes place in the workplace, you will still need to show that you weren’t responsible for your injuries if you want to make a successful claim with expert injury solicitors in Warkworth.
If your employer was at fault, it’s perfectly possible that they could be held responsible and injury solicitors in Warkworth could help you to make a compensation claim against them. If you’re considering making a claim against your employer, you may be keen to find out how much your claim is worth or how much compensation you could expect to receive if your claim is successful.
