Make a Compensation claim
We have had years of experience in pursuing cases involving injuries sustained in falls at Carrs Solicitors and have a particular interest in cases under the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
If you have been injured at work as a result of a fall or a slipping or tripping accident, we can advise you as to whether you will be entitled to claim against your employer's liability insurance for damages on a no win no fee basis.
Employers have a duty under the Workplace Health Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992 to ensure:
- Floor surfaces and pedestrian traffic routes are of suitable construction and that they kept free from tripping and slipping hazards so far as reasonably practicable
- A safe place of work, safe access to it and competent fellow employees
- Appropriate signs are in place e.g. if the floors are wet and there should be enough light so people can read these signs
