If a wall fixture falls off in the office it could cause as simple an injury as a small bruise or cut. However, if the wall fixture is large, the accident at work could be quite substantial. The question is, could you make an accident at work claim if you suffered an injury in the office?
Times when an accident at work claim could be made after a wall fixture fell off
In most cases an accident at work claim could be made if a wall fixture fell off in the office causing an injury. Most of the time these items may fall off in the office due to negligence of general maintenance to the office, or not fixing it up properly in the first place. Any accident at work injury which is caused through no fault of yours may potentially be grounds for making an accident claim.
Are there any times when an accident at work claim could not be made?
The main injury caused which is unlikely to lead to an accident at work claim is any wall fixture which fell down due to the worker’s fault. This could be from tampering with the fixture in the office to hitting it either purposely or by accident.
Any accident at work which has been caused by you is unlikely to be grounds to make an accident at work claim.
