Trip at work


Most slips or trips occur outside, on an uneven pavement, for example, off a kerb or over something left lying about. Trips in our own homes are less common but trips or falls in the office or workplace happen every day all over the UK. If you have been injured in a trip at work and it was someone else’s fault, you may well be able to seek compensation. Minor trips are quickly forgotten, but if your fall was more serious and your injury required medical treatment, then you have a right to claim compensation.

If your injury means you will be off work for an extended period and your ability to provide for yourself and your family is at stake, you are fully within your rights to claim compensation, as long as you can show that negligence on the part of your employer was the cause of your trip at work and subsequent injury.

Trip at work

Don’t be put off seeking compensation following a trip at work because you’re worried about getting on the wrong side of your employer. They will be covered by employer liability insurance so your claim will not be against them but their insurance company.

Sounds complicated? It needn’t be with our expert help. At Accident Advice Helpline, our specialist solicitors have been seeking compensation for people in your circumstances for over a decade. We have won many thousands of pounds for people injured at work because of employer negligence.

We can seek compensation on your behalf if your injury happened in the last three years and you can show it was someone else’s fault. Did you trip over a torn carpet or down an obstructed stairway and break your wrist in the fall? Were you hit by a falling shelf or by some other heavy object insecurely stored?

Your injury doesn’t have to be life-threatening before you can seek compensation. Any diagnosed injury caused by your employer’s negligence enables you to seek compensation.
