    I was injured by a fall at work


    If you have been injured by a fall at work which was not your fault, you are almost certain to be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Many people do not even look into the possibility but if you are afraid that the whole process is too complicated, call us at Accident Advice Helpline where one of our lawyers will be able to explain it to you and also give you an estimate of what you might receive. We also have a compensation calculator on the website which takes just thirty seconds to complete, so it really isn’t hard to find out where you stand.

    A fall at work can be quite serious

    Of course, not all falls at work involve serious injury but if you work at a height, your fall can be catastrophic. A broken leg can be serious enough, but a back injury can give you problems for life. This is why it is so important to pursue a claim if the accident was not your fault. Some injuries can create health problems for many years and may also contribute to long-term issues such as arthritis and stiffness in joints which will eventually seriously impair your mobility. A fall at work may also mean that you can no longer do your job and although most employers are very understanding and give you another position you may lose a lot of money over time with lost promotions and other perks.

    Slips and trips can give you quite a shock

    Your slip or trip may be caused by something as simple as a spill from a cup of coffee being carried by a colleague. If you don’t work in a dangerous environment it is very easy for everyone to become rather complacent. Many of the calls we get on our Accident Advice Helpline Freephone number are from people who have had a fall at work in the most unthreatening of places. Offices can be dangerous places to work, with paper on the floor, spills of coffee, water and handwash on the floor and also items that can roll such as pens often dropped and forgotten. The unwary are very much at risk in the ostensibly safe environment – with everyone’s guard down, it is often a case of an accident waiting to happen. Obviously, no one leaves a hazard in your way on purpose, but sometimes you deserve more than just a simple apology, especially if you lose a lot of time at work due to your accident.
