As an area where we spend a great deal of our lives, the workplace is one area where we like to feel safe and secure. There are a number of tight rules and regulations which govern the way that workplace safety should operate and most companies are bound on the way that they must look after their employees.
Although the workplace is a carefully guarded area, accidents can still happen through the negligence of another employee or even of the employer. Trips and falls can easily occur if items have been left lying around and they can be potential hazards to anyone who comes across them, especially if they are relatively out of sight.
If you have been left with injuries as a result of tripping or falling in the workplace, through the negligence of another person, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred.
Where could I be injured tripping at work?
There are a number of situations where you could find yourself injured by tripping or falling in the workplace and some common occurrences of this include:
• Trips over items which have been left lying around
• Injuries caused by falling down poorly lit stairwells
• Trips caused by a slippery surface
• Trips caused by physical abuse
• Trips caused as the result of faulty machinery or equipment.
Who could I claim against for any negligence?
If you have been injured in the workplace then the first person that you may consider making a compensation claim against is your employer. By law, your employer has both a right and responsibility to ensure your safety and to make sure that you are able to work in a safe environment with the right equipment and training. If you feel that they have failed to do this, and you have been left with injuries and expenses as a result, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.
