Uneven Work Floors with Holes or Hard to See Edges

Uneven Work Floors with Holes or Hard to See Edges

Have you or a loved one been injured as a result of tripping on an uneven work floor with a hole or hard to see edge? 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 tripping in a hole or hard to see step or edge 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 trip 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 tripped on an uneven work 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 mishaps where our clients have tripped as a result of a hole or missing drain cover in the works car park, or tripping where the floor of the works yard is broken and potholed, or where concrete slabs within the yard are uneven creating a trip edge. Several of our clients have been injured in warehouses where the floor is damaged, or where a fixture has been removed and the floor has not been filled in. Tripping accidents on pavements within factories and work premises frequently happen where the pavement is not maintained safely. Many workers are injured in offices where small steps and edges are carpeted and are difficult to see, or where the carpet is not properly secured to the floor with a carpet gripper.

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, offices and in many other jobs where uneven and dangerous floors are commonplace.

How do I bring a claim after tripping in in a hole or hard to see edge? 

Tripping accidents on potholed or uneven floors are some of the most common type of work accidents in the United Kingdom.

Our experience at The Claims Partnership is that the vast majority of tripping accidents at work caused by tripping on an uneven floor, hole or unseen edge could have been avoided if your employer had been more careful.

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 repairing floors, yards, pavements and car parks within the workplace

– Ensuring that holes and edges are fenced off or covered with a mat or ramp.

– Carrying out a proper Risk Assessment to identify where holes and edges might occur and ensuring that the tools and equipment are available to make them safe.

– Training staff to carry out their jobs safely, not to leave a job unfinished where they might be a risk of a colleague tripping and to report problem floors when they encounter them.

Case Study

A Train Station Employee Trips at the Entrance to the Train Station

Catherine worked as a Counter Assistant at a train station. She was walking into the station on her way to start work one morning. At the very entrance to the station was a small area covered with traditional paving stones. The paving stones were a little uneven. One of the paving stones was approximately 15 mm higher than the other one. As she stepped off it, she lost her balance, falling forwards and sideways and landing on her left arm. She suffered a serious fracture to her left arm and her left elbow.

    Without the Claims Partnership I doubt I would have received a compensation from Ryanair, glad I used their services. Thanks to Paul and Kallen.
