Fall, Trip & Slip Accident Claims

Falls from Height, slipping and tripping accidents constitute the single most common source of major injury at work and are estimated to cause over one and a quarter million lost days from work. Falls from height are the most common type of fatal accident in a workplace (23% of all fatal accidents at work in 2011/12) according to the HSE.


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.


Employer’s Liability

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
