ARE YOUR FLOORS SAFE?
From Only £447
In the event of a slip injury claim the courts expect an independent unbiased truthful assessment of the flooring and associated factors that could have or did lead to the slip accident occurring. This assessment will be conducted by an ‘Expert Witness’; a person experienced in the fields of Health & Safety in respect to floors, flooring accidents and the reasons why they occurred, how they happened and how they could have been prevented or avoided.
FloorSlip can provide ‘expert witnesses’ who will give an unbiased professional opinion followed up by a CPR compliant report, which can be used by either plaintiff (claimant) or defendant providing independent assessments of the floor slip, trip or fall accident or injury
We fully ascertain the circumstances of the slip injury accident and so forth and culminate it in a unbiased fully CPR 35 Compliant Report, i.e. Expert Testimony complying with Civil Procedure Rules (Updated by dot gov April 13). The FloorSlip assessments will include but not be limited to the following: -
Where required, the witness will also present the findings in court and will act as a witness on behalf of either the aggrieved party or the defendants.
Paraphrasing of the definition of an Expert Witness taken from the Barrons Law Dictionary tells us: -
“…An Expert Witness is a person testifying on a subject with a special subject knowledge not normally possessed by the average person. To qualify, he or she need not have formal training, but the court must be satisfied that the testimony presented is of a kind which in fact requires specialist knowledge, skill, training or experience derived from study, education, experience or observation and the expert witness must be accepted and qualified by the court to testify as such; the testimony given constituting expert evidence or expert testimony”.
We are governed by the UK courts rules on Expert Witnesses
Expert testimony is where matters that are not common or scientific knowledge and not within the range of ordinary training or intelligence can be used by Judge or Jury to draw conclusions. The courts expect the testimony to be based upon facts or accurate and truthful data and for the testimony to be the product of reliable principles and methods which should have been applied correctly (For example -
The courts also expect the techniques used to be tried and tested and been subject to review and there are publication standards controlling its operation; also and if there is a high rate of error -
Alternatively, the expert may set forth the facts and state a conclusion in the form of an opinion which may be accepted or rejected by the jury. But experts are not allowed to give their opinion as to who was responsible for an accident or testify as to the standard of care required to be exercised by the parties. This is an issue that the jury or judge will determine.
Using FloorSlip, not nearly as much as you might think……
….because every test we do is unbiased and conforms to British Standards and those methods HSE recommended, then we are used to carrying out this type of assessment on a daily basis. The major difference are that we assess the areas more thoroughly for factors that have lead to a slip injury lawyer becoming involved and furthermore provide the details in a CPR 35 complaint report, obviously paying far more attention to the detail in a slip injury claim or accident ensuring the courts receive an informative, unbiased assessment, which is easy for the judge and layman to understand to alleviate the need for you to have to spend additional money getting expert witnesses to attend court.
