    Harrow accident at work claim


    If you are employed in a care home or a prison for instance, you could well find yourself in the situation where you are attacked by an inmate of whichever institution you are working in. There should be rules in place to prevent these events happening and if the rules are not enforced by your employer, you could be entitled to make a Harrow accident at work claim.

    Where attacks happen and having to make a Harrow accident at work claim

    There are many different types of institutions where you could be at risk of being attacked by an inmate or resident, and precautions that can be taken to reduce the risk of this happening.

    • In a prison, wardens should not enter cells on their own, a prisoner is far less likely to attack if there is more than one warden present.
    • In a mental institution the patients can be very unpredictable by the nature of the reason they are there and their carers should always have company when they are attending to them.
    • In a care home the residents are usually elderly or ill and you would not expect attacks to be carried out by them, but they do and it is amazing how much strength even the feeblest of elderly people can find if they decide they want to attack someone.

    These suggestions of how innocent victims can be injured while at work, are just a drop in the ocean of the attacks that happen to workers every day and as some of them sustain serious injuries, it should be no surprise to their employers when they make a Harrow accident at work claim.
