    Compensation for tripping in an office


    Whether you work as an administrator or a lawyer, you might be surprised to learn that offices can be dangerous places, for those who work there and for visitors too. Keeping your office tidy can go a long way to prevent accidents from happening, but if you have already been injured after tripping in an office, it’s a bit too late for that.

    Provided it has been less than three years since your accident, it’s not too late to make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. We’re proud to have helped hundreds of office workers and professionals claim the compensation they deserve after their employer has been negligent and our advisors offer confidential, no-obligation advice.

    Head-over-heels

    If you’ve fallen head-over-heels after tripping in an office, you might have suffered serious injuries. Perhaps you tripped over some boxes of files that had been left out in a walkway, on your way to the photocopier. Or maybe your heel got caught in a corner of carpet that was sticking up.

    You could even trip in a stairwell if the stairs are damaged or there are hazards which have been left lying around. There have been cases where people have been seriously injured after tripping at work, suffering from lost teeth, fractured skulls and broken bones.

    Tripping over cables is a major hazard in any office and cables shouldn’t be left trailing across walkways. If you trip and are injured due to trailing cables, your employer could be held liable, as it’s their responsibility to ensure that the office environment is safe for workers, which includes making sure it is tidy.
