Trips and slips

Every organisation has a duty of care to ensure all visitors to its premises are safe.

Accidents resulting from slips and trips are often perceived as trivial, and an example of the "compensation culture". In reality, a high proportion of such accidents involve serious injury. Health and safety experts estimate that 95% of major slips result in broken bones.

Examples of tripping and slipping personal injury claims include:

  • Defective pavements
  • Wet floors in shops, hospitals, and schools
  • Injuries suffered in sports centres and playgrounds
  • Injuries to cyclists, motorcyclists and motorists caused by potholes

Quite often the injuries sustained as a result of such accidents have long term adverse consequences.
