Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you make an ankle injury compensation claim whether your injury was sustained at work or in a public place; the expert solicitors from our office in Leeds have expertise in most areas of liability law.
There are basic rules which must be followed to reduce the risk of slips either at work or in a public place. Failure to follow these rules can lead to liability for an accident and injury to another person. Basic housekeeping rules are vital; keep water and contaminants away from walkways and if they do spill they should be cleaned up immediately. Any employees such as cleaners who are exposed to wet floors should be provided with suitable footwear. Particular care and attention should be taken during the colder months when rain ice and snow increase the risk of wet floors.
