Slips, trips and falls are common; both in the workplace and in general – but the results can be devastating. If you’ve been injured as a result and have suffered physically and/or financially you could well be entitled to compensation – so it’s vital you know the law so you can put the wheels in motion.
Common Occurrences of Slips & Trips
As we mentioned, they can happen anywhere – either in the work place or in a personal context. See below for a list of common places in which slips and trips can occur:
Britian is currently facing a pothole epidemic – the impact of this for road users is obvious, but a more tacit consequence is the effect it has on pedestrians tripping when crossing the road.
In 2011, an AA study found an average of 14.9 potholes in a one hour exploratory walk around their local area. This has risen from 2010’s average of 12.9 despite extra repairs made by local authorities on remedying the situation.
Furthermore, potholes can occur in pavements themselves and present a risk of serious injury for any pedestrian.
