Tripped at work


Trips at work are relatively common, and can occur in any type of workplace. The Health and Safety Executive recognises this, and requires all employers to take steps to remove, or minimise, trip hazards. If your employer ignores his or her responsibilities, and you are injured as a result, it is highly likely that you will have grounds to file a claim for compensation.

I have tripped at work, do I have a case?

If you have tripped at work and would like to determine your eligibility to compensation, please pick up the phone, call our number and discuss your accident with us. Our trained claims advisers will assess your case free of charge, provide you with advice on your legal rights, and let you decide whether you wish to instruct one of our personal injury solicitors to go ahead with your claim.

Your accident must have been caused by someone else’s negligence and not be your own fault. You will need to have had medical attention for your injuries to support your claim.

If you have a strong case for compensation, you must normally file your claim within three years of the date of your accident. If, however, you were under the age of 18 years at the time of your trip, you can make your claim any time up until your 21st birthday.

Will I win my claim?

At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a strong track record of winning compensation claims for people who have tripped at work. When you contact us, we will look into the information you provide and offer you with honest advice on your chances of winning your claim.

How much compensation will I receive?

If you win your claim, the amount of compensation you receive will depend on a range of factors, including the nature and severity of your injury, the length of your recovery period and the amount of money you have lost as a consequence of your accident.

At the outset of your claim, your solicitor may find it difficult to assess the value of your compensation settlement. However, as he learns more about you and your injury, he will be able to provide you with a more accurate estimate of the value of your claim. Whether you sustained a minor or severe injury when you tripped at work, you will be able to rest assured that your solicitor will do all they can to secure a large compensation settlement from your employer.
