Slips, trips and falls are common accidents and happen everywhere. If you are injured after slips and falls at work in Wigan, and can prove your accident was not your fault, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.
Accidents at work are a common experience and often we have no one to blame for our accident than ourselves. However, not all work related accidents can be attributed to our own fault; sometimes other people may be to blame through negligence or through a lack of Health and Safety procedure and practice.
In cases such as these, where you may have been injured as the result of a work related accident that wasn’t your fault within the last 3 years’, you may be eligible to pursue a claim for personal injury compensation.
Causes of fall-related accidents
- Unstable flooring
- Lack of suitable handrailing

- Lack of toe boards on scaffold towers
- Debris and obstacles
- Trailing wires and cables
