    Hand Sanitiser Accident Claims

    In compliance with government advice, you will usually now find hand sanitiser pumps upon entrance to a public place. This is in an attempt to reduce the transmission of Covid-19 through touching surfaces whilst on the premises. Whilst the intentions of hand sanitiser are positive, the increased presence has led to a surge in hand sanitiser-related accidents in public places.


    We will help you win the compensation you are entitled to. If you have been in a hand sanitiser-related accident at work or in a public place, contact us on 0800 342 3206 or get in touch online.

    Except for children, there is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident occurred. You should contact us as soon as possible to assess your case.

    Hand sanitiser locations

    Hand sanitiser pumps will likely be placed in public spaces where the touching of surfaces/items is common. These places include areas such as:

    • Supermarkets
    • Cinemas
    • Sports Stadiums
    • Hairdressers
    • Hotels
    • Gyms
    • Salons
    • Theme parks
    • Train stations
    • Restaurants/Bars

    Hand Sanitiser Accidents

    Increased amounts of hand sanitiser can lead to a number of different types of accidents occurring. However, we often see hand santisier accidents that are the result of slips, trips, and falls resulting in soft tissue damage, fractures, and broken bones.


    All personal injury cases are unique and so the amount of compensation that is awarded in each case is also unique. The amount of compensation that is awarded is determined by looking at two specific factors – general damages and special damages.


    The pain and suffering that your injuries have caused is the main factor that is used to determine how much compensation you are owed. This will usually be determined by undergoing a medical examination, from which a report is created that outlines the length of time the injuries will take to heal as well as their severity.

    Our compensation calculator gives an indication of how much you might be entitled to based upon your injuries.


    However, compensation also takes into account any financial losses that you might have suffered as a result of your injuries, such as a loss of earnings due to being unable to return to work. If you have had to pay for treatment or travel to treatment, compensation may also be able to cover this as well. Therefore, you should keep any receipts or other documents that help to outline the extent of your financial losses, as caused by your accident/injuries.

    Except for children, there is a three-year time limit on making a personal injury claim. This time limit begins from the date that the accident occurred. You should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to assess your case.
