    Compensation for trip injuries in an office


    Offices aren’t the first workplaces which spring to mind when you think of danger at work, but even the most seemingly safe offices could put employees at risk of injury, if employers don’t take steps to ensure staff are safe at work.

    Trip injuries in an office could affect the rest of your life, and rather than feeling angry and frustrated, why not make a claim for the personal injury compensation you deserve with Accident Advice Helpline?

    Our personal injury lawyers have received an endorsement from TV personality Dame Esther Rantzen, and with 15 years’ industry experience, we really know what we’re talking about when it comes to personal injury law.

    Be careful at work

    Whilst taking responsibility for your own safety at work is important, does that mean you’re to blame if you trip over a box of files left in the office hallway? Hardly – your employer should ensure that your office environment is tidy and safe, to prevent the risk of trip injuries in an office from occurring. But how do most of these injuries occur? Here are a few common scenarios:

    • Tripping over cables or wires left trailing across a corridor or walkway
    • Trip on loose carpet or damaged floor tiles
    • Tripping in a stairwell, over hazards or on a damaged stair
    • Trip over hazards such as files, sheets of paper or boxes left lying around
    • Tripping as you enter or exit the office

    Whilst you can pay attention and ensure you’re aware of any hazards at your office, your employer should ensure that hazards are dealt with quickly, for example repairing loose carpet or removing trailing cables from walkways, to prevent an accident from happening. Have they failed to do this? Then we could help you make a claim for personal injury compensation, within three years of your accident occurring.
