How Much Compensation Can I Claim After an Office Accident?
The compensation you can receive for an office accident claim can vary depending on the nature of your accident and the injuries you sustained as a result. It will usually take into account the seriousness of your injuries and how long it may take you to recover, and factor in the circumstances that led to your accident in the first place.

What Are My Employer’s Responsibilities?
Employers have a legal duty of care 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 fulfil their legal obligations and you are injured as a result, you are entitled to make an office accident claim for compensation.
