    Accident lawyer in Vale of White Horse

    Do you need an accident lawyer in Vale of White Horse because you’ve had an accident at work? Call Accident Advice Helpline and, if you’re eligible to claim, we’ll help you.

    Accidents at work

    Accidents are always troublesome. They cause inconvenience, and if you get injured, a lot of pain. Afterwards, while you recover, you might also find that you have financial trouble, because you lose pay through being off sick, and have to hire home helps and pay for taxis to get out and about.

    It’s worse, in a way, when you get injured at work. After all, work is meant to keep you out of financial trouble – yet here you are, having to deal with the aftermath of a broken arm, an electric shock, or a head injury.

    Slips, trips and falls

    One category of accident that an accident lawyer in Vale of White Horse will encounter frequently is the slip or trip and fall incident. This kind of thing could happen anywhere, of course – it’s just that, in your case, it’s happened at work.

    The reason you could make a claim is that your employer is legally obliged to keep you safe at work by ensuring your conditions are safe. If you’ve fallen through slipping or tripping, it is an indication your work environment could be safer!

    How to prevent slips, trips and falls

    In the workplace, you can do your bit to stop these incidents from happening:

    1. If you have an accident, or even a near miss, report it to your manager. If there’s a problem area, it will be addressed – and this might stop others from having accidents.
    2. Have you spilt anything? Clean it up immediately. Even a cup of tea spilt on a tiled floor could be a major problem.
    3. Have you seen a potential trip or slip risk? Tell your boss. Something needs to be done about it.
    4. Don’t let cables trail on the floor. If you need to plug something in, choose a socket nearby – or use an extension cable and run the cable close to the edges of the room.
