Claiming compensation for slips and trips at work

If you have suffered an injury at work which was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation against your employer for your loss of earnings, loss of amenity (loss of means to take care of family members), medical expenses and special damages (financial losses aside from lost wages). In order to be eligible, you will need to prove the following:

• That the injury was caused at work (straightforward)

• That your employer failed to discharge their duty of care to protect you from physical or psychological harm (less straightforward but routine for a specialist work accident solicitor)

Slips can be caused by many failures and aside from the obvious mental effects that victims suffer there can also mental consequences such as amnesia or flashbacks caused by the traumatic nature of the experience. Employers are legally obliged to protect workers from such harm and by failing to take the health and safety measures or provide the training necessary to prevent slips and trips at work, employers can be said to have breached their duty of care towards employees, Failing to carry out risk assessments, train staff adequately, or provide the necessary signage or equipment to prevent slips and trips could all be examples of employer negligence.

An expert work accident solicitor will be able to help you establish whether or not you are likely to win a work accident compensation claim and can help you win the damages you deserve.
