Mr B used Michael Lewin’s no win no fee services to make a claim for accident at work compensation while he was injured carrying out his duties. Mr B was working for his employer in a hospital when his accident occurred. Mr B had gone to use the lavatories in the hospital and on his way there he slipped on a wet floor. There were no signs indicating that the floor was wet and there were no mats on the floor to prevent slipping. As a result of the accident Mr B sustained injuries to his back.
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.
If you need advice about employment law following an accident at work speak to the experts at Michael Lewin in Leeds. 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.
