    Why was the floor wet? An employer has a requirement to take suitable action to reduce risks but they are not automatically liable for things that are outside of their control.

    Just because there was no wet floor sign, does not mean they are liable. Your employer has to be negligent and ideally evidence needs to exist to show that.

    So, why do you think your employer is negligent?

    Do you really want to take legal action against your employer for being off work for just 3 days?

    I dont get paid for being off sick so have lost 3 days wages, i cannot dress myself, drive or sleep & i am in a lot pain. I wont be claiming against the company i work for it would be against the cleaning company they employ. i have a 4-6 week recovery time too so its not just being off work for 3 days.

    I believe you claim off your employer. It is up to them or their insurer if they decide to pursue a counter claim from the cleaner. Someone will no doubt verify the correct position.

    Yes. Have a chat with a friendly solicitor. Preferably avoiding all the ads on TV and the internet since those take some of the money that you could otherwise get.

    Or if you're concerned just with lost wages, have a word with your HR department and say that because it was a work-fault accident you would like them to pay you at full rate for the time off work instead of seeking compensation. That would probably be less hassle and cheaper for both you and them.
