    Injuries you could sustain in the office


    You’d be forgiven for thinking that an office is hardly the most dangerous place to work in the world. Yes, there are far more dangerous jobs than sitting at a desk all day – but you could still be injured whilst working in an office. Your workplace is only as safe as your employer ensures it is – and it’s their duty to keep you and your colleagues safe whilst you’re at work. If you’re injured, you could find yourself eligible to claim personal injury compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline could help you. Our team of expert advisors offer confidential, no-obligation advice that can help you decide whether or not claiming is the right next step for you to take.

    Office injuries – what’s the worst that could happen?

    In case you’re wondering what sort of injuries you could sustain in the office, here are just a few examples of the most common office injuries:

    • Scalds after a colleague spills a hot drink on you
    • Electrocution from faulty equipment such as a PC or photocopier
    • Broken bones, cuts and bruises or a head injury after falling from height – for example whilst reaching files on a shelf
    • Repetitive strain injury from long periods of typing or sitting without a break
    • Slip or trip injuries such as strains and sprains, broken bones or facial injuries

    If you feel that somebody else is at fault for your accident at work, whether that’s your employer or a colleague, you could be entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation, provided it has been three years or less since your accident. Our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so you can afford to make a claim even if you’re a part-time worker on a low wage.

    Why should you claim?

    Negligence is no laughing matter, and if your employer has been negligent and you’ve been injured as a result, others could be injured in future too. By making a claim for personal injury compensation, you’re sending a message to your employer that this situation needs to be resolved. But you’re also ensuring you are compensated for your pain, suffering and any loss of earnings you’ve experienced. Perhaps you’ve needed to take weeks or months off work due to your injuries? Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and we can tell you if you’re entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
