    How to claim civil service injury compensation


    Sometimes it seems like we are always hearing about accidents at work and claims for compensation on the news – but nobody really gets injured whilst working in an office, do they? Accidents happen at dangerous places of work, such as construction sites and factories. Actually, that’s not true. Accidents have the potential to happen in any workplace and if you’ve been injured whilst employed as a civil servant, you could claim civil service injury compensation. Don’t choose just any personal injury lawyer though – pick Accident Advice Helpline, as we specialise in personal injury claims and have years of experience in the industry.

    Common civil service injuries

    Here are a few examples of common injuries which could affect anyone working in the civil service:

    • Slip or trip in the office – for example, tripping over computer cables or slipping on a wet floor that has just been cleaned
    • Repetitive strain injury from carrying out repetitive tasks such as typing
    • Back and neck injuries from a workstation which has not been adjusted to suit the worker
    • Head or facial injuries caused by objects falling from height
    • Injured after a fall from height, for example whilst reaching for files on a high shelf
    • Burned or scalded by hot food or drink in the office kitchen
    • Food poisoning after eating food in the office canteen
    • Electric shock from faulty office equipment such as a PC or printer

    As you can see, the average office does have hazards which could easily lead to an accident – that’s why health and safety at work is so important. If you’ve been injured and you believe your employer could have done more to keep you safe, why not make a claim for civil service injury compensation?

    Has your employer been negligent?

    If you were wearing 5-inch heels to work when you tripped and fell, it’s likely you’re to blame for your accident. However, in many cases, employer negligence is behind accidents at work. For example, if you have received an electric shock from a faulty PC, it’s your employer’s job to ensure that electrical equipment at work is safe to use. If you have slipped on a wet floor, warning signs should have been displayed.
