An office always has a safe feel about it. Being streamlined and decorated in an up-to-date modern fashion, the workplace looks impressive and implies a safe and healthy working environment. However looks can be deceiving. With tight deadlines to work to and more clients coming on board throughout the year it becomes apparent to some employers that time is money. This is where the employees, like you, can become endangered. Injury lawyers present many cases for accidents at work, some of which originate in the office environment. Talk to us today if you need free claims advice in Maidenhead.
Do you need free claims advice in Maidenhead?
Even before you get to your desk there are hazards wherever you look, starting with the lobby of the building itself. Maintenance is imperative when keeping a posh and polished image, but wet patches can be difficult to spot on a shiny floor. If left unmarked, the patch can be the cause of an accident, possibly resulting in broken bones.
In the office area, each electrical appliance could be considered a hazard. Without regular tests and checks for fraying cables or damaged equipment you could be open to an electric shock. Another possibility of a hazard is a long-developing injury. Injury lawyers will tell you that repetitive strain injury, RSI, could be considered a claim for compensation if your employer has not done enough to minimise the risk of such a condition developing. In these circumstances you may need free claims advice in Maidenhead.
Making a claim with injury lawyers
Making a claim for an accident you weren’t responsible for is a right you have. Working with your injury lawyers you can build a compensation case which combines a detailed account of the accident with any evidence to prove that you were not responsible for the accident.
In most cases your lawyers will work to keep your claim out of court, however this is not always possible to do. If your claim does need a court hearing, your lawyer will accompany you and present the case on your behalf.
If you have had an accident at work that was not your fault you could be entitled to some compensation for your injuries. Our friendly team of advisers at Accident Advice Helpline can help get you on the right track for making a claim and even get your case started for you. It’s free to call us so get in touch on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile to get free claims advice in Maidenhead and start your claim for compensation today.
