Our team have particular expertise in handling office accident cases involving:

- Trips or falls in blocked walkways

Regardless of how you have been injured by somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to make a claim. Compensation can help you to return to the life you had before the accident took place, providing valuable support by covering any time you had off work, or paying for necessary medical treatments and rehabilitation services.
An Employer’s Responsibility
Employers have a legal duty to ensure that working environments are free from hazards that may cause injury. Risk assessments must be carried out regularly to identify areas for improvement, and employers must take steps to reduce the possibility of an accident happening. Suitable actions include:
- Training all staff on health and safety protocols
- Providing safe, adequate and undamaged equipment
- Ensuring workstations are kept clean and tidy
- Keeping any wiring neatly stored away
- Using suitable safety signs in high-risk areas
If your employer has failed to fulfill their legal obligations and you are injured as a result, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Why You Should Make a Claim
Making a claim can help you return to the life you had before the accident. Compensation can help to financially support you by covering any time you had to have off work, paying for any necessary medical treatments and rehabilitation services, as well as providing an allowance for any extra care you might receive from family or friends.
