Slipping Accident in Reception Area

arm-plaster-cast.jpegOur client was involved in a slipping accident in the reception area of his place of work. The incident took place during the recent heavy rainfall we have been experiencing.

Having arrived at work, he entered the building and, having walked over one section of matting just inside the reception area, he then proceeded to walk across a stretch of laminate flooring, but due to the amount of water that had been brought in by co-workers on an earlier shift, the laminate flooring had become wet and the client ended up slipping on the wet flooring.

As a result of the slip, the client fell to the ground and suffered a severe musculoskeletal injury to his back, together with further soft tissue injuries to the chest. The employer had failed to put out any warning signs advising people arriving at the premises that the floor was likely to be wet/slippery, despite the fact that it had been raining all morning and all the previous day.

Having taken a detailed statement from our client and having sent the Letter of Claim to the client’s employer, a full admission of liability was received well within the three month period allowed for the third party/third party insurer’s liability investigations under the terms of the Personal Injury Pre-action Protocol. At that stage the client could therefore be reassured that, subject to our medico-legal evidence, he would be receiving some compensation for his injuries.
