Wearing heels that are too high to work is bad news – you’re just asking to fall over in front of your new boss or colleagues. If you hurt yourself wearing 5-inch heels, really you only have yourself to blame. But what about if you’ve been injured after falling over at work and you feel somebody else is at fault?
Ask yourself how your accident happened. Maybe you tripped over a box of files somebody carelessly left lying around or perhaps you fell after catching your foot in a broken floor tile. Falling over at work could cause serious injuries, depending on how you land. Trust Accident Advice Helpline to help you make a claim for personal injury compensation. Recommended by our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen, we’re proud to have helped hundreds of people claim compensation since we were established in 2000.
Do you feel better now?
It might be that you escaped your fall with minor injuries and are already on the road to feeling better – that’s great. But what if you don’t feel any better, or if you are suffering and in pain even though it has been months since your accident? A fractured wrist or damage to the tendons in your hand or wrist could take time to heal, whilst if you injure your back in a fall you might need physiotherapy and you could find your back is never as strong as it once was.
Accidents which lead to long-term complications can seriously affect your quality of life – perhaps you can’t play with your kids like you used to or sit or stand for long periods at work. Get in touch with us for confidential, no-obligation advice on your accident and we’ll tell you whether you have a viable claim – our expert personal injury advisors have years of industry experience.
