While it may appear on the surface that people who work in offices are at less risk of accidents at work than people who perhaps work on building or construction sites, this is not always the case. Our injury solicitor in Seascale have worked on a number of cases involving accidents to office workers and have helped them make successful claims for compensation against their employers.
If you have been involved in an accident within the office, and have been injured as a result, then contact the Accident Advice Helpline today and talk to one of our injury solicitor in Seascale to find out if you too could make a claim.
If you don’t have the time to speak to an injury solicitor in Seascale right away you can always take our 30 second test which will tell you immediately if you can make a claim. You can then get in touch with us at a later date to discuss your case in more detail. However, you shouldn’t delay for too long as there are strict deadlines in place in relation to how long you have to make a personal injury claim.
Injury Solicitor in Seascale
One of our personal injury solicitor in Seascale can help you make a claim for compensation if you have been involved in any of the following office based work accidents:
- Slips – slips can occur in any environment where there is a slippy surface. In some circumstances a slippy floor covering may not necessarily exist until there is a spillage that has not been suitably cleaned up, or has not been marked as being a potential hazard.
- Trips – trips can occur in an office environment if boxes have been left lying around, or if there are cables running along the ground which have not been suitably tied up and taken care of.
- Falls – falls can happen if you have tripped over a hazard and perhaps fallen down a step, or even an entire flight of stairs. Equally, it is possible to fall from a significant height whilst working in an office, for example, if you are working in a store room or filing room and having to use ladders. You should always be fully trained in the safe operation of any equipment that you may need to perform your duties or tasks.
- Electric shocks – any equipment or machinery that is within the work environment should be checked on a regular basis to ensure it is working correctly. Faulty items can then be removed from use until they are replaced or repaired.
- Carbon monoxide poisoning – all gas appliances within an office environment, for example gas fires or central heating systems, should be checked and maintained on a regular basis to ensure they are within working order. Carbon monoxide detectors should also be present to offer further protection against this dangerous form of poisoning.
If you have been involved in any of the above accidents, contact Accident Advice Helpline today to see if we can help you make a claim.
