Stockbroking is not normally associated with physical risk or psychologically traumatic incidents, but if you were involved in an accident, you may decide that you need stockbroker injury advice. Working in a financial services office or on a trading floor, you have a right to expect that your employer will safeguard your health and safety. If this was not the case, you could be entitled to accident compensation. Another stockbroker could also have injured you or someone else you worked with, in which case you could also potentially raise a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline can provide assistance with this.
Health and safety regulations
Whether you work in an office, on a trading floor or another part of your employer’s premises, any accident relating to badly supervised health and safety regulations could mean that you can sue for compensation. In the heat of the moment, your employer may have wilfully ignored your safety, leading to your accident. You may have been closing a deal or on the verge of profiting from a particular transaction, when your workplace became suddenly a dangerous environment to be in. If you were forced against your will to continue with the transaction despite the dangers, you could have a strong claim.
Who caused your accident?
To start a claim, you need to be able to show that someone else was at fault. Another stockbroker or colleague may have injured you. Stockbroking can be a fairly routine job, interspersed with sudden moments of high pressure. Your colleague may have acted without proper attention to your well-being, causing you to fall or slip. There may have been a moment of aggression, with someone going as far as striking you. As long as you can show that the other person caused your injury, you could be entitled to financial recompense.
