What are the Most Common Causes of Slips, Trips & Falls?
Tripping accidents commonly happen outside as a result of faulty, damaged and uneven paving and can also be caused be tripping over objects sticking out of the ground. Tripping accidents can also happen indoors as a result of tripping over objects that should not be there as well as walkways being blocked, carpets and rugs that have been improperly fitted, uneven flooring and loose wires. Likewise, the causes of falling accidents are many and varied.
Other workers at risk of suffering falling accidents include window cleaners, roofers and those working in supermarkets and warehouses where they are also sometimes required to work from height to put things on high up shelves. Falling accidents can also happen outside working environments, and as long as someone else was to blame, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
What are the Injuries Associated with Slips, Trips & Falls?
As they involve the body falling to the ground, broken and fractured bone injuries, sprained ankles and wrists and back injuries are most commonly associated with slip, trip and fall accidents. As every case is different, victims will suffer many different injuries and combinations of injuries and to very different degrees of severity. A very small proportion of injuries resulting from slips, trips and falls fall within the extremely serious category and includes such injuries as a medium to long-term loss of mobility, brain damage and even fatalities.
I Was Injured in a Slip, Trip or Fall at Work – Can I Claim Compensation?
If your accident happened while you were at work, you could make a work accident compensation claim as it is the primary duty of your employer to ensure that you are safe at work. It is also your employer’s responsibility to specifically ensure that your workplace complies with current health and safety legislation. As such, they should do things such as signposting wet floors; gathering electrical cables safely and making sure that all walkways are clear and free of obstructions and all stairways are well lit.
Employers should also ensure that their workforce is adequately trained to carry out their duties safely to ensure that the risk of accidents occurring is reduced to negligible levels and they must also ensure that their workforce is capable of working safely for that same reason. If employers fail to fulfil basic obligations such as these, they could be liable to pay damages to the employee or employees injured in trip, slip and fall accidents at work.
