About CPR Reports

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.

What is an Expert Witness?


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  



The Expert Testimony


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 - using and correctly applying British Standards for floor testing).


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 - FloorSlip only use the Pendulum Test, which has been around for many decades, is repeatable and predictable in its results, calibrated to BS standards annually and is used around the world in the filed of floor slip injury claims  


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.
