    Law firm in Rochdale


    Today, most people searching for a law firm in Rochdale are doing so because of a slip, trip or fall accident that has caused an injury they believe they should be compensated for; an accident which was someone else’s fault!

    The town of Rochdale grew with the industrial revolution

    Rochdale is a town that owes its growth to the industrial revolution and the fact that it was once one of the U.K.’s major “mill towns” with a flourishing cotton and wool trade. Coal was another major local industry and the development of the Rochdale Canal provided a shipping medium for distributing cotton, wool, and coal products all over the UK.

    Slip, trip and fall accidents in the retail trade

    The coal, cotton, and wool industries have long since petered out, and Rochdale is now mostly residential, its biggest economic employment sector being the retail trade; in fact it is the birthplace of the cooperative movement, a vibrant and important section the retail sector, a sector which has its own fair share of slip, trip and fall accidents and injuries.

    The most common cause of slip, trip and fall accidents

    The single biggest cause of slip, trip and fall accidents and injuries is floor contamination. Floor contamination basically covers anything that falls on the floor; things such as ordinary rainwater, oil, grease, and even cleaning materials became  if floors are not carefully dried and/or cordoned off once they’ve been cleaned. More contamination can come about through every day weather conditions, or as a result of some process taking place in a factory.

    Hazards brought about through bad housekeeping in the home and workplace

    A significant proportion of slip, trip and fall accidents (approximately 50%) are caused through bad housekeeping, by trip hazards being left in place. This sort of hazard can however be easily eradicated, or drastically reduced, through appropriate training and the adoption of best practice.
