Our mission is clear.
Delivering the compensation you deserve.

Slipping accidents

If you are a visitor or customer on someone else’s premises, you can claim against the owner or occupier if you suffer an injury after a slipping accident – which you do not believe was your own fault. If you have slipped on something that should not have been on the floor, in a public place or at work – then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Supermarkets can be hazardous, as drinks or other products can be easily spilt – it is therefore important for these premises to have regular shop floor inspections, to prevent the risk of injury to customers and other visitors. You may be able to make a claim for compensation against them if the owner or occupier did not:

  • Have an appropriate system for checking floor spillages
  • Clean up the spillage effectively when discovered
  • Have any warnings about a slippery floor

You should also be provided with a safe place of work by your employers, so if you suffer a slipping injury because this responsibility is not met, then you may also have a claim against your employer. See our separate section on accidents at work.
