Causes of a Slip or Trip
Thousands of people are injured each year as a result of a slip or trip. A slip or trip can happen at any time in any place if negligence has occurred. There are many causes of slip and trip accidents – you may be eligible to make a claim if your injury was due to any of the factors listed below
- Unlevel surfaces – many injuries occur from unlevel surfaces. Unmarked steps and uneven pavements can lead to many trips.
- Wires and Cables – wires and cables are essential to making things work but if they are left trailing then they become a major trip hazard.
- Low Lighting – we cant be fully aware of hazards if we cant see them. Low lighting can mean you do not notice an ill-placed object which can cause a trip or you slip not realising a floor is wet.
- Wet Floors – any wet surfaces should be marked as they pose substantial risk. Slips can occur because of spillages in a workplace or supermarket and ice or snow on pavements.
