Slips, trips and falls
Some of the most common types of accidents in the workplace and public areas are slips, trips and falls. These accidents can occur in many ways, but one of the most common is because of uneven paving slabs. Other causes include:
- Unlit stairs;
- Stairs with no handrails;
- Wet flooring;
- Loose carpet;
- Spillages; and
- Trailing wires.
Employees have a right to expect their workplace to be a safe environment in which to work, and you also have a right to expect public places to be safe. The responsible party has a duty of care to ensure that they are. If you suffer a slip, trip or fall, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim using a personal injury lawyer in Kirbymoorside.

- Brain injuries;
