Claims involving Untidy Workplaces

Have you or a loved one been injured as a result of slipping or tripping in an untidy workplace?  Find out the best way to win a claim for compensation.

If you or someone that you know has been injured as a result of slipping or tripping in an untidy workplace, such as an office, garage or shopfloor, or even outside of work, then The Claims Partnership can help you get compensation for your physical and mental injuries, as well as loss of earnings and any other expenses that you might have paid for. 

How we can help

The Claims Partnership are a firm of ‘safe hands’ solicitors who offer a cast-iron No Win/No Fee service and an unbeaten record of success. We are so confident of our abilities to win your slip at work claim, that we promise to pay you £100.00 if we do not win it for you. 

We have successfully won hundreds of claims for compensation against every kind of employer for people who have slipped or tripped in an untidy or messy workplace, negotiating compensation awards from as little as £1,500.00 for a very minor injury to damages in the hundreds of thousands of pounds for clients whose lives have been badly affected. 

Common accidents that we have dealt with include our clients slipping on discarded food packaging and wrappers, or from overflowing bins, as well as spillages from discarded water bottles and coffee cups. Our clients have been injured tripping over electric wires, ropes, cables or extension leads trailed across the floor. We have successfully represented hundreds of clients who have tripped over boxes in offices, shops and supermarkets.

No claim is too big or too small and we make sure that we use our decades of skill and experience to do our best for every one of our client’s. Our solicitors are not just skilled lawyers, but we have also worked in factories, warehouses, supermarkets and in many other jobs where untidy and dangerous workplaces are commonplace.

How do I bring a claim after slipping or tripping in an untidy workplace? 

Slipping and tripping accidents in untidy, offices shops and shopfloors are a very common type of work accident in the United Kingdom.

Our experience at The Claims Partnership is that the vast majority of slipping and tripping accidents at work caused by untidy workplaces could have been avoided if your employer or your colleagues had been more careful. At The Claims Partnership, we take the view that even if your employer was not at fault directly, they are still responsible for the carelessness of their employees, especially if it has caused you to be injured. We have successfully argued this and won compensation for our clients on this basis on hundreds of occasions.

Much of the time an employer has not met their legal obligations to make sure you are safe in your job. These obligations include:

– Regularly inspecting and cleaning floors and surfaces to check for boxes, spillages, wiring, food or litter or anything that might cause you to slip or trip.

– Ensuring that staff have placed a wet floor sign on a floor when they have created a wet spillage.

– Carrying out a proper Risk Assessment to identify where litter might accumulate, what staff might be involved and to identify processes and equipment, such as waste bins that could avoid food and litter accumulating.

– Regularly inspecting, tidying and maintaining the workplace to ensure that boxes are not left on a traffic route, that cables, wires and ropes are not exposed or a danger to workers walking around the factory, warehouse or office.

– Ensuring that staff are trained to be alert to the danger presented by boxes, trailing wires and cables and to ensure that they work safely and that the workplace around them is safe.
