A slippery floor, as we all know, is a dangerous floor.
The typical British weather can be a contributor to hazards itself.
Whilst out and about shopping it is all too common that the floors in supermarkets and clothes shops, become engulfed with rain water making them as slippery as an ice rink.
One false move or the lack of a ‘caution sign’ could send you free-falling to the ground and injury is only seconds away. All these events can then result in medical assistance, time off work and even long term disability.
In a short space of time, you have gone from healthy-happy-go-lucky to broken-bruised-victim. Through no fault of your own you could find that regular trips to the hospital become part of your routine and you are forced to take time off from work, making that promotion a little harder to achieve.
So what can you do now?
Well, like many people that have suffered from accidents that were not their fault they have gone on to seek accident compensation. ‘Quite rightly so’, some might say, as you might feel that being without a regular income or restricted body movement would leave you entitled to compensation.
There are some experienced compensation claim companies that offer no win no fee compensation and 100% of your compensation paid out.
Making a claim is a way of making companies look at how they handle possible accident situations, and what steps that they would take to avoid them. After all ‘prevention is better than cure’. It is important that these accidents are avoided and the staff become aware of the reasons behind it, as to ensure that no one else is victim to these dangerous hazards.
