Have you been injured by a slip, trip or fall accident? Do you need expert help? You need injury solicitors in Chingford
Slips, trips and falls are common everyday types of accident that can occur anywhere and anytime. Although frequent, these types of accident can cause painful and serious injuries, particularly to the frail and elderly who may require a long period of time to recover. They are the most common of all accidents in the UK.
Types of slip, trip and fall accidents
Slips can occur on wet and slippery floor surfaces which aren’t signposted to pedestrians. Any type of spillage should be promptly wiped up to avoid the risk of someone slipping and injuring themselves. In the event of polishing or cleaning floor surfaces, warning notices should be placed at ground level to warn pedestrians to avoid the area whilst it dries.
Trips often occur when there are changes in floor height. Narrow plinths and door thresholds aren’t always obvious to pedestrians; someone can easily trip and hurt themselves if these aren’t signposted.
Falls can occur due to insufficient lighting in high traffic areas such as hallways and stairwells. It is important to consider spotlighting areas, to ensure that visibility is enhanced; reducing the risk of falling from height down a staircase. In the workplace, safety railings should be available and positioned to reduce the risk of falling when working or moving around at height. These barriers can act as an effective health and safety product and raise awareness of the perimeters of the platform; reducing the likelihood of falling.
