Office accident claims

Office accidents are relatively common in the UK, particularly in workplaces which do not observe the required health and safety regulations. If you have suffered a debilitating personal injury due to another individual’s negligence, whether this is a result of inadequate training or excessive stress, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation for loss of earnings, pain and suffering and rehabilitation costs.

Common office accidents

Office accidents tend to occur due to inadequate training in health and safety procedures, a lack of supervision or the lack of a comprehensive risk assessment. Common accidents include:

If you have suffered one of the above personal injuries, and suspect that your employer or another responsible person is to blame, it is important that you contact an experienced office accidents solicitor as soon as possible to discuss your options.

Your employer’s responsibilities

UK employers have responsibilities to their staff, and are obliged to create a safe working environment for their employees. As part of UK health and safety law your employer is required to take all necessary precautions to ensure you are protected from unnecessary risks such as loose cables trailing across walkways.

Your employer is also required to provide training on safety procedures, such as the proper method for lifting and carrying, and appropriate safety equipment.

If you feel that your employer has failed in any of their duties, and this has resulted in an office accident, a period spent out of work and loss of earnings on your part, you may be entitled to claim financial compensation.
