Of all the accidents that occur in the workplace, slip, trip, and fall accidents are by far the most common. The vast majority of these accidents result from avoidable hazards such as surface contamination and obstacles on the floor.
To prevent slips and trips in the workplace, employers need to carry out regular risk assessments. Unfortunately, many employers fail to take health and safety regulations seriously, with many wrongly assuming that slips, trips and falls are unavoidable.
What should I do following a slip, trip and fall at work?
If you have suffered an injury due to a slip, trip and fall accident at work, you should contact an accident lawyer as soon as possible. A successful compensation claim will help you to mitigate your financial losses and pay for your medical treatment.
