You may not think the office canteen seems like a place where you’re likely to be injured – and generally speaking it’s not, with the exception of the day chips are served, when there’s the risk of crush injuries from stampeding office workers. Nevertheless, there are risks lurking in your office’s canteen that could lead to an accident, leaving you injured. We’ll explain more about these risks in a second, but you should be aware that you could make a claim for office canteen injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
What injuries have you suffered?
Now it may be that you’ve been injured whilst popping to the office canteen for your lunch, but equally you could be injured whilst working as a member of staff in the canteen. Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common accidents which people claim office canteen injury compensation for, and although these don’t sound dangerous, you’d be surprised how serious your injuries could be. You could fracture your ankle or your wrist, damage your back, or even suffer a head or facial injury if you hit the ground or another object as you fall. Most canteen slips are caused by spilt food or drink which has not been cleaned up properly – and the company could be held liable for your injuries.
It might be that you’ve been struck down by food poisoning after enjoying some lasagne in the office canteen, and you could make a claim for personal injury compensation if this has happened to you. Or maybe you’ve been injured whilst working as canteen staff. Burns, scalds and slip or trip injuries could all happen in a busy office canteen, and if you feel your employer could have done more to prevent your accident, we could help you claim compensation.
