If you have tripped over a trailing cable while working in an office, you may be able to claim Huddersfield compensation if you have injured yourself. Every year, thousands of people injure themselves in offices even though there are health and safety rules that should be followed. Unfortunately, these regulations are often ignored by employers, and this is how accidents often occur.
This does not mean that employers can get away with a disregard for the law. The reason that they cannot is that they have a duty of care to their employees. This means that they cannot leave unsafe trailing cables because they will not pay an electrician to make the office safe; in effect, if an accident takes place because an employer blatantly disregards health and safety rules, then they may have to pay out for a compensation claim.
An unbiased opinion is needed
Do not worry that your employer will dismiss you if you file a compensation claim against them, as it is against the law for them to do so. After the accident has occurred, make sure that you record it in your company’s accident book. This will provide evidence at a later date when your lawyer gathers the facts for the compensation claim.
Also, you need to make sure that you are examined by a medical professional. It is always a good idea that if you are seen by the doctor or nurse at your place of employment that you also have an examination by an independent medical professional. The amount of compensation that you may receive is often due to the extent of your injuries, therefore an unbiased opinion is needed.
