Slip Injuries in Public PlacesYou can claim for slip injury accidents on Slippery Floors in public places such as libraries

Have you sustained a slip injury from a floor slip in a public place?

This might be a supermarket, a restaurant, fast food café, nightclub, pub, company owned building, museum, library and so on. If you slip it is likely you can make a claim where costs for slip injury will be recovered from the personal liability insurance of the business.

Slip injuries generally occur on wet slippery floor surfaces as a result of - poor floor safety management, ineffective cleaning or where businesses and public bodies have considered the ‘look’ first and the safety second (or not at all in some cases!)

If you slip on a public footpath, you may be able to make a personal injury claim against your local authority if it is proven they have failed to ensure a public place is properly maintained – Contact FloorSlip Now for advice on Slip Injury Claims


Accident Injuries at Work

Employers have a duty of care to ensure employees are safe from the risk of a floor slip injury at work. If you slip at work because the flooring is unsuitable for the purpose it is being used for; because a spillage or contaminant on the floor has not been considered and allowed for in the risk assessment; or because of a co-worker or another company visiting the premises, then your employer is responsible and you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for employer negligence

FloorSlip can give you free advice on whether you have a case to claim for compensation – Call FloorSlip Today for Advice on Slip Injury Claims



Don’t Delay in Calling – Time is critical in slip injury compensation claim cases

In slip injury cases there is often a limited time period in which you can claim following an accident so seek advice early on. A claim investigation is more effective when proceedings begin as soon after the accident as possible (It also gives businesses less opportunity to ‘cover their tracks’ to make your compensation claim more difficult) – Call FloorSlip Today and we will get the advice you seek quickly.


The injury compensation solicitors we use typically offer a free initial consultation to assess whether you could make a successful claim and if they believe you have a case they will assign a specialist legal team to your case to investigate and keep you informed throughout the injury claims process.


Slip and Fall Accident Injury Causes  

Slips on floors are the most common form of accident and a slip injury is the highest form of injury seen resulting in multiple injury compensation claims.

However, many businesses and public bodies are more concerned about the ‘look’ of the floor as opposed to its ability to prevent slip injury accidents occurring. Architects and floor specifiers are put under pressure to provide ‘off the shelf’ products because they are possibly cheaper and quicker to produce and procure – but the money and time saved often results in thousands and sometime millions of pounds in compensation claims.


Slippery Floor Signs do not prevent Slip Injury Claims

Starbucks fined $7.5 million (£5 million) after man bangs his head when  he sustained a slip injury after slipping on spilt coffee

December 2011 - A Court ordered Starbucks to pay a chiropractor and his family 7.5 million after a slip-and-fall accident left him with a head injury. The amount aims to compensate the claimant (Mr Z) for loss of income, medical expenses and the loss of enjoyment of life, Mr Z was in a Starbucks picking up his order when he slipped on a just mopped area hitting his head on the floor - signs warned customers of the wet floor - but slippery floor signs are no excuse to providing an inadequate floor in the first place

Why slip injuries occur

Slips are caused by the inability of a floor surface to prevent floor slips occurring; most prevalent when the floor is wet or contaminated. If a floor is ‘shiny’ then the chances are it will also be highly slippery when wet.

Compare a floor to a ‘smooth’ car tyre with little or no tread remaining; a tyre is illegal and dangerous in this state; it does not have the ability to prevent skidding in the wet. This is the same for floor surfaces, the smoother the surface the more dangerous it is and the more illegal it is; particularly when wet. A specialist personal injury solicitor will argue strongly for a compensation claim that it was illegal to specify floors which could not prevent slip injury in the first place when specifying a floor for a purpose; and furthermore illegal to carry on using a floor if it is either known it is not fit for purpose or has not been pendulum tested to prove its ability to prevent slip injury.


How safe should a floor be to prevent a Slip Injury? Pendulum Test Equipment Method

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) recommend a minimum Slip Resistance Value of ‘36’ (as measured on the Pendulum Test) is the minimum value to prevent slip injuries and prevent compensation claims. A value of 36 must be achieved when wet or contaminated with substances relevant to the environment – for example a coffee spill in a restaurant.  A successful claim for compensation is unlikely to occur if the value is ‘36’; provided the floor has been cleaned and maintained correctly at all times and particularly when a slip injury might have occurred.


Pendulum Testing can prevent a slip injury on Shiny Hotel Reception FloorA value of 36 gives the probability of slip as just 1 in a million - a drop of 2 points to 34 means a drop of 10 x to just 1 in 100,000 - A value of 24 gives the probability of slip of just 1 in 20 - and if a floor looks like the one shown here then the Pendulum Test Value when wet probably be only 10!

The role of Flooring Manufacturers and Architects to prevent Slip Injuries


Are you an Architect who specifies ‘non slip’ floors? Do you know you can be held liable for specifying floors which can cause slip injuries?


Are you a supplier or manufacturer marketing a ‘non slip’ floors? Do you think you could also be held accountable for marketing a product designated ‘non-slip’ that doesn’t truly prevent slip injury?  


 “….‘Non Slip’ is a term which could be applied from a skateboard to a saucepan but means nothing unless it has been proven by HSE approved Pendulum Testing that the flooring has the ability to prevent slip injuries”


FloorSlip can test floor test samples very economically and quickly and remove the nagging doubt that you might have as owner, architect, specifier or manufacturer that the floor will have the ability to prevent slip injuries.
