Trip and Slip Accidents: Employers’ Obligations
Employers and the people in charge of a workplace have strict obligations to make sure the workplace is safe. It should be clean and tidy and free from spillages, oil or other things likely to cause a slip or fall. If an outside area is icy, then a route should be cleared to allow people to work and walk about safely. Stairs should be properly constructed with handrails and potholes should be filled in. If a floor is likely to become wet, then the surface should be made of a suitable material. Often these precautions are not taken until after an employee has suffered a trip or slip injury.
At Your Side Guidance through Every Step of Your Claim
You can rest assured the specialist lawyer dealing with your case will go to great lengths to ensure you are fully and adequately compensated for every aspect of your trip or slip accident. In some cases, we’ll push for ongoing payments where future treatment or care is needed. If necessary, we’ll try and secure a clause that allows you to return to court should future health problems arise as a result of your accident.
Whatever the seriousness of your slip or trip accident at work, however it was caused, if it wasn’t your fault you should be looking to pursue compensation to cover your pain and suffering, and your financial losses. At Bell Lax we take a genuine interest in our clients and their welfare.
