Any injury incurred through a trip in a public place; for example, over a cracked paving stone or exposed tree root, can potentially be deemed to be the fault of the local council or authority tasked with maintaining a safe public highway. If a similar scenario occurs in work, then the injured party’s employer is culpable for any injury sustained. You may trip over a trailing cable or a misaligned mat or carpet tile. Somebody may have left a foreign object in the middle of the floor. Whatever the case, if you feel you have tripped as a result of someone or something else’s fault, you could make a personal injury claim with one of our trip and slip compensation lawyers.
