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 spillages, leaks and unsafe floors are commonplace.

How do I bring a claim after slipping on a wet floor as a result of a spillage, or a leak from machinery or the ceiling?

Slipping accidents on wet floors are the most common type of work accidents in the United Kingdom. The UK Health and Safety Executive report that wet floors cause 90% of workplaces slipping accidents.

Our experience at The Claims Partnership is that the vast majority of slipping accidents at work caused by a spillage on the floor, or a leak from machinery or the ceiling could have been avoided if your employer or your colleagues had been more careful. Most 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 maintaining machines so that leaks of oil or other machine fluids do not happen.

– Ensuring that staff have placed a wet floor sign on a floor where there has been a spillage, a leak from a machine or from the roof.

– Carrying out a proper Risk Assessment to identify what machines are vulnerable to leaks, to make sure they are checked regularly and fixed or put out of action if they are leaking or dangerous.

– Training staff to clean up spillages properly, to mop properly and to place warning signs in a mopped area.

– Making sure that doors and windows are closed and that rainwater or other sources of drips or leaks do not come to be on the floor.

Case Study

A Hospital Porter suffers an injury to his Back and Neck after slipping on a Hospital corridor.

Lenny works at a hospital as a porter. He received a message to tell him to go to the main corridor to collect a wheelchair. The main corridor had a continuous line of glass windows along both sides. When he located the wheelchair, he manoeuvred it into position and used his right foot to unlock the brake. As he did so, he placed his weight on his left foot, which began to slip forcing his left foot under the wheels of the chair. He lost his balance and fell heavily on his lower back.
