Slips, Trips and Falls at Work Claims
Employers have a duty of care to keep workplaces free from slip, trip or fall hazards. That means throughout the workplace, including entrances and car parks, areas must be kept clear from wires, liquid spillages, ice and other potential trip hazards.
Despite employers' duty of care and the majority being avoidable, slips, trips and falls are among the most commonly reported workplace accidents.
As a member of a trade union, we can help advise you on whether you have a case for compensation if you're injured following a workplace fall.
Our specialist solicitors have helped thousands of union members to secure personal injury compensation after an accident at work; from minor falls resulting in sprains, lacerations, head injuries and broken bones through to the most severe of cases involving falls from height leading to traumatic brain injury, multiple bodily injuries and even fatalities.
