Then it is very likely you are entitled to make an accident compensation claim. Employers, Owners and Managers are entirely and wholly responsible to ensure Floors are safe at ALL times from the risk of Slip Injuries.
If you are an employee, customer, visitor, student, schoolchild, patient or member of the public then the chances are is the floor you have slipped or tripped on was owned by either a public or private body and they have responsibility to ensure the floors (pavements and and roads) are safe for the circumstances they will be used for.
Then contact FloorSlip For Slip Injury Advice; Don’t delay, the longer you leave a claim the less likely it is you will win a slip injury claim

This is an excuse that owners and managers use all the time. They try to claim because your shoes are worn, or stilettos or the ‘wrong type’ of shoe that it is YOUR FAULT that you slipped on their poorly maintained and slippery floor – IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT. Employers and Managers must ensure they check floors meet the minimum HSE defined Pendulum Test Value of 36 when wet, dry or contaminated with substances relevant to that environment REGARDLESS OF SHOE TYPE*
Excuse the pun but Employers, Owners and Managers do not have a leg to stand on using the lame excuse that you were wearing the wrong shoes*
*Unless they are employees working in an area where it has been defined that shoes of a specific type must be worn and then specific PPE / non slip shoes must be supplied and maintained by the employers with sufficient proven anti slip properties and in good condition

Floors must be safe against slip injury accidents in all circumstances
You can make an injury claim or accident claim for anything from a work accident, industrial injury, or slip or fall through to asbestos disease (Mesothelioma) or clinical negligence. And if you or a family member has had a car accident resulting in whiplash, head or brain injury, and a whole host of other accident and injury claim types then you can make a claim. It’s all about Negligence and the government’s failure to enforce Health and Safety rules and to tighten up on Floor Safety
It’s simply because BUSINESSES THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH NOT TESTING – THEY CAN NOT, SHOULD NOT and WILL NOT – If you make that claim for a slip injury and NOW
