Trip & Slip Claims

Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common reasons for injuries, accounting for over a third of all major injuries reported each year. They are also the single most common cause of work injuries, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

These accidents can be caused by a range of different factors, including poorly maintained flooring, a lack of signposts when cleaning, obstacles in a walkway, or afailure to mop up a spilt liquid on the floor. Those in charge of public areas such as workplaces and public pavements, including employers, local authorities and occupiers of premises, have a duty of care towards those on their property.
