The Law On Claiming For A Fall At Work

Your employer has a legal duty to take care for your safety.

There are strict regulations about taking steps to reduce the risk of falls at work.

Under these regulations anywhere that you might walk is referred to as a “traffic route”.

All traffic routes must be constructed from suitable materials.

And all traffic routes should be kept free from obstacles and hazards.

We have won lots of cases for clients who tripped over obstacles in a traffic route.

These have included falls over electrical wires, extension cables, discarded tools and empty boxes.

 

Fall At Work Claim – Snow And Ice

Your employer should have a reasonable system for clearing snow and ice during the winter.

They should clear any car parks, paths or other outside areas where you might need to walk in order to do your work.

And they should also clear the paths you need to use to get into and out of your workplace.

Of course, there are some occasions when the weather is so cold or snowy that it becomes impossible to keep the car parks safe.

So these cases can be difficult to prove.

But they are always worth investigating.

So if you have been injured in an accident like this please just get in touch.

Some jobs involve working in areas with a high risk of slips and falls.

These regulations are particularly important for people such as drivers, kitchen workers, factory workers and construction site workers.

So if you have been injured in a fall which could have been prevented by proper safety footwear we may be able to help.
