Most cases of slip, trip and fall claims arise in the workplace. This is the reason why every reputable company must carry ‘public liability insurance’ that will cover them in case of an accident found to be caused due to negligence in the workplace. You can make a slip, trip and fall claim when the accident is substantiated as being caused due to an act of negligence in the case of employers.
If the accident occurred in your workplace and you are not the cause of it, yet are injured because of someone else’s negligence, you can make a claim.
Among the predominant reasons for slip, trip and fall accident claims is when individuals unwittingly encounter unsafe ground conditions. Good examples of these being unexpected obstacles that cause a tripping hazard, cracked – or uneven – pavements, wet (or slippery) floors in public places and/or inadequate lightening that makes it hard to see an obstacle.
Negligence by responsible parties not highlighting or cordoning off potentially dangerous areas which can be accessed by employees or members of the public, is often the root of personal injury claims for resultant slips, trips and falls.
If you have experienced a slip, trip or fall accident in these conditions in either a work or public place which has to lead to an injury, then you could be in a string position to make a claim.
