    You may consider slips, trips and falls to be trivial but, in reality, these accidents can have serious consequences.

    Causes of slips, trips and falls in Pidley

    Slip, trip and fall accidents can occur anywhere in Pidley – in public, in the workplace, and on pavements and roads. Common causes of slips, trips and falls include:

    • Wet surfaces
    • Loose, unanchored mats and rugs
    • Uneven surfaces
    • Trailing cables
    • Poorly lit stairwells
    • Cluttered aisles and corridors
    • Wrinkled or frayed carpeting

    Slip, trip and fall prevention

    Good housekeeping is essential to the prevention of slips, trips and falls. It includes:

    • Cleaning up spillages immediately
    • Marking slippery surfaces with warning signs
    • Removing debris and obstacles from floors
    • Securing loose mats, rugs and carpets
    • Covering electrical cables that cross walkways
    • Keeping working areas, aisles, corridors and stairwells well lit

    In the absence of good housekeeping practices, other preventive measures, such as the installation of nonslip floor coverings, will never be fully effective.

    The slip, trip and fall claim process

    If you have suffered a slip, trip and fall accident, you will be able to make a claim through an accident lawyer in Pidley. The vast majority of slip, trip and fall claims are settled out of court; however, some accident claims need to progress further. For this reason, you must hire an accident lawyer in Pidley with knowledge and experience of handling slip, trip and fall claims.
