FloorSlip have been conducting Expert Witness duties on behalf of Lawyers in Slip Injury Claims since 2012 in England, Scotland and Wales. To date, we have conducted over approximately 150 cases for up to 60 different slip injury accident lawyers.
Our assessments include on-site visits and assessments of the slip locus and contributing factors. We test the floors for slip using only equipment and methods recommended as acceptable by the UK HSE; namely On Site Floor Slip Pendulum Testing to EN-16165* and in accordance with the latest UKSRG Guidelines.
*Parallels then Supersedes BS7976-2 from Dec 2021
We also examine artefacts supplied and compose Expert Witness Reports which are suitable for expert and layman to understand. We generally deliver reports within 4-6 weeks after the site visits (and sooner if required with special requests).
There are cases where access to the site are not granted, or the site in an overseas location, or the floors have been removed or replaced since a slip accident occurred. In these cases we can provide desktop reports from artefacts supplied (Photos, CCTV, Risk Assessments, Witness Evidence and so forth) and by using 'read-across' from historical evidence for particular floor types (Most floor types showing similar chracteristics for their genre).
We are familiar with the expectations of the English/Welsh CPR 35 Rulings (see and the Scottish Court of Law legislation and can prepare expert witness reports for either court.
We can, where requested, provide sample test reports (GDPR Compliant). Please contact floorslip to receive an expert witness sample report.
