Loose floor tiles, pieces of carpet or floorboard, uneven floors, broken floor tiles or missing floor tiles can all be referred to as hazardous floors. These floors are a health and safety hazard which can result in a slip, trip or fall accident, causing a range of injuries. Workplaces, businesses, property owners and other establishments all have a duty of care towards the people that use their premises. This means that if they put customers, staff or other people that use the building at risk, because of disrepair or any other health and safety hazard and someone is injured as a result, they could be held legally liable and have to pay the injured person compensation. What is the average payout for a personal injury claim? This really depends on the severity of the injuries caused
In this guide to making a compensation claim for an injury due to a missing tile, we will look at how much can you claim for a slip and fall. We will explain where accidents can occur because a floor tile is missing and what injuries missing tiles can cause. Remember, if you have been injured in an accident due to a missing tile that was not your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Call Legal Expert today for your free personal injury claims consultation and if you are entitled to compensation, an excellent personal injury solicitor could start working on your case right away.
Hazardous flooring such as missing tiles can cause slip, trip or fall accidents. Whilst some slip, trip or fall accidents only result in minor injuries such as cuts or bruises, other slip and trip accidents can result in more serious injuries which could need extensive medical treatment in order to heal. If your injury had a significant ongoing effect on you then you could be entitled to claim compensation. Whether the party responsible was a private homeowner, business, school or college, hospital or any other sort of organisation, they could be held liable for your injuries.
Buildings such as offices, shops, restaurants, gyms and shopping centres are required to provide people who use the premises with a safe environment. This can include broken tiles, tiles that have come loose because they were not properly installed cracked tiles and missing tiles. Other flooring related health and safety hazards include loose carpets, carpets which have been bunched up or have holes in them, warped or cracked floorboards, or uneven flooring due to improperly installed sub-flooring.
TheHealth and Safety Executive has stated that slips, trips and falls are the most common type of accident that people can suffer from, in the UK. This also includes instances where someone has fallen from a height. Whilst some slip, trip or fall injuries are minor (such as minor bruising which will usually heal on its own), other injuries are more serious and can take longer to heal from.
Examples of injuries caused by trips and falls includes:
- Fractured bones.
- Broken bones.
- Soft tissue injuries such as torn ligaments or a sprain.
- Spinal injuries.
- Head injuries.
- A dislocated joint.
To make a claim for an accident due to a missing tile, you must be able to provide evidence that the accident was caused by negligence on the part of someone else. This means proving that the accident was not caused by poor judgement on your part, or human error. If a missing tile or broken floor tile caused you accident, it is advisable to take pictures of the hazard at the scene of the accident, to provide evidence. Your solicitor will also collect evidence to support your case, such as eye witness accounts of CCTV footage.
In some cases your accident due to a missing tile may be partially caused by irresponsible behaviour on your part. For example if you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol and tripped on a loose floor tile you may be held partially responsible for your injuries. In this case, the property owner or management may be judged to hold partial liability. For example, if a bar is held to be 50% responsible for your injuries, you will receive only 50% of the compensation that you could have.
We will now look at how injuries due to a missing tile can take place, and which parties can be responsible.
If an accident was caused due to a missing or damaged paving tile then the responsible party will be those charged with maintaining that area of pavement. Liability may rest with a local council or it may rest with a private company who either own or operate the pavement where you were harmed. If you are making a claim for an accident involving a missing, or damaged pavement tile, the defect must be at least 1 inch in height or depth.
Of course paving tiles could also be used in internal locations. We shall look at some of these circumstances below.
Although swimmers should always take care in and around swimming pools and other bodies of water, swimming pools have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their members of staff. Unfortunately if there is excessive amounts of water on the pool side or in the changing rooms, this can cause swimmers to slip over. Similarly customers could trip and fall because of an accident due to a missing swimming pool tile, in the changing rooms or at the poolside. This could cause the customer to fall onto the floor, injuring themselves, or fall into the pool, putting themselves and others at risk.

Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common ways that people are injured in the workplace. As we have already stated, according to the Health And Safety At Work Act 1974, employers are responsible for providing employees with a safe and hygienic environment in which to work. If an employee is injured or made ill because of negligence on the part of the employer, then they could be held liable for your injuries and have to pay you compensation.
According to the HSE there were an estimated 119,000 cases of slip, trip and fall accidents in the workplace.
