You know that new office temp? The one who is always spilling tea and coffee in the mornings as she wobbles along the hallway with the tray? Yes, her – she could cause an accident. Slipping in an office is a fairly common occurrence; slips, trips and falls are one of the mostly commonly reported office accidents, and you could be seriously injured.
If slipping in an office has left you laid up in bed with a broken ankle or in pain from torn tendons in your wrist, there is some good news. Claiming personal injury compensation after your accident may be possible, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you along the way. We’ve been helping customers for 15 years and have even received an endorsement from our patron, Dame Esther Rantzen, who you may know from television.
How has your life changed?
Whilst cuts and bruises from slipping on a spillage at work probably won’t change your life, if you have sustained more serious injuries, you could find that the way you live changes significantly.
Chronic back pain after a slip at the office can plague you for the rest of your life, making it difficult to stand or sit still for long periods; you may even need to quit your job. A head injury suffered after a slip could lead to behavioural changes or learning difficulties that may mean you need 24/7 care and are unable to look after yourself.
We’ve helped people suffering from a wide range of injuries to claim the compensation they deserve – after all, you’re not responsible for the spillage or leak which caused your accident, so why should you suffer in silence? Because we offer a 100% no win, no fee service, anybody can afford to claim personal injury compensation, even if you’re struggling financially after your workplace accident.
Holding your employer liable
Your employer could be held liable for your injuries if they haven’t taken steps to prevent your accident from happening. A leaking roof which has been reported to management could cause pooling water that could easily lead to a slip, whilst a kitchen spillage that isn’t cleaned up promptly has the potential to be hazardous too.
We’re here to make sure you get the compensation you deserve, whatever has happened, so call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today to get expert advice from one of our personal injury advisers.
