Slipping on Food or Litter Left on the Floor

Have you or a loved one been injured as a result of slipping on food or litter on the floor? 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 on food or litter on the floor, either in a work accident 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 on food or litter on the floor, 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, spillages from discarded water bottles and coffee cups. Our clients have been injured slipping on discarded food such as chips or grapes, as well as plastic bags. Several of our clients have been seriously injured after stepping into heavy duty plastic ties used to secure boxes that have not been cut by work colleagues, causing them to trip.

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 littered, unclean and dangerous floors are commonplace.

How do I bring a claim after slipping on food or litter on the floor? 

Slipping and tripping accidents on wet or littered floors are the most common type of work accidents in the United Kingdom.

Our experience at The Claims Partnership is that the vast majority of slipping and tripping accidents at work caused by slipping on food or litter on the floor 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 food or litter or anything that might cause you to slip.

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

– Carrying out a proper Risk Assessment to identify where food and 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.

– Training staff to carry out their jobs safely, not to leave litter and food lying around and to clean up spillages and litter properly.
