Mr T from Barry made a claim for compensation for a neck injury at work in the UK after he sipped on a wet floor; neck back and shoulder injuries are common injuries suffered as a result of slips trips and falls at work and Michael Lewin don?t ask their clients for any money up front.

Mr T was 22 years old when he sustained injuries at work during an accident that wasn?t his fault. He slipped on a freshly mopped floor at work which left him with injuries to his neck and left shoulder. There were no signs indicating that the floor was wet.

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.

In the past figures have shown that slip trip and fall incidents in the workplace have cost 40 workers their lives in one year. Also in a year over 15000 major injuries to workers have been caused by slips trips and falls and over 30000 workers have taken more than three days off work. It is estimated that the cost to society each year for slips trips and falls is around £800 million. Health and Safety Executive figures show that slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries in the work place in Great Britain. Most workplace deaths are caused by falls from height.
