Slips, trips and falls are common accidents in the workplace. These accidents can occur for a variety of reasons such as objects in the way, spillages or poor building maintenance. Injuries are also varied but often include fractures and breaks to arms, legs, wrists and fingers. If you’ve received injuries as a result of a trip or fall at work, you may be able to claim compensation.
The workplace is an environment which is likely to have many hazards which present the risk of causing slips or trips. According to the Health & Safety Executive, over 10,000 workers in the UK suffered serious injuries after having a slip or trip at work.
I was very happy with the service from First Personal Injury. I have already recommended you to a number of people and will continue to do so in the future.

Offices can often have trailing wires and equipment lying in walkways which create the risk of workers tripping over. Workers in shops, stockrooms or manufacturing factories can often sustain injuries as a result of tripping over stock that is lying around. Spillages in workplaces like the kitchen, for example, can create a serious hazard for workers who may slip and land on a hard surface.
Employers have the responsibility to ensure the workplace meets health and safety standards, preventing any risk of accidents. If you have been injured due to health and safety procedures being ignored or neglected, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.
Training in health and safety is also vital at work. If you have experienced an accident that was not your fault due to a lack of training or a colleague hasn’t followed procedures correctly, you may be able to claim compensation.
