Working in an office isn’t the most dangerous job around, granted, but there are plenty of hazards in the average office that could leave you injured. Think about how many items of office equipment you use on a daily basis – if anything is wrong with any one of them, you could be injured, which means a claim for office equipment injury could be on the cards. You don’t have to pay through the roof for legal fees though, not when Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis. Get in touch within three years of your accident and you could see if you’re eligible to make a claim.
How could office equipment leave you injured?
How many of these pieces of office equipment are in your office?
- Binding machines
- Water dispensers
You could be injured at any time, by any piece of office equipment. For example, you could suffer crush injuries to your fingers whilst trying to remove a paper jam from the photocopier or printer, slice off a finger with a guillotine or get long hair or a loose scarf caught in a shredder. You could suffer a broken toe after the heavy water bottle from the dispenser falls on your foot, be scalded when a colleague spills a hot drink on you or suffer lacerations from a faulty binding machine.
Claiming office equipment injury compensation shouldn’t be a complicated process. The aftermath of any accident can be a stressful time, and if you have suffered life-changing injuries, such as the loss of a finger, you’re going to need time to adjust.
