Do you need to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Sussex claim after being hurt whilst working in an office block?
Although working in an office may not seem like a particularly dangerous job, many injuries and accidents do occur in these types of working environments. As large businesses often own office blocks and towers, there can often be hundreds, or even thousands, of people working in the same space. In addition to this, some office environments are rented out to different firms and businesses. This means that larger office blocks can be filled with employees from differing companies.
Whilst each company may have varying health and safety procedures, they must all meet with the general health and safety guidelines laid down by the law. Even if a company rents, rather than owns, their workspace, they must ensure that it is a safe place for their employees to work.
If the building does become unsafe, for any reason, employers would need to find a new space in which to work or find alternative working arrangements until the problem is resolved. If, for example, there was a problem with the foundations of the building, extensive building work may need to be undertaken in order to make the building safe. If it is dangerous for employees to work in the building during this time, their employers may need to rent additional office space in order to avoid accidents and injuries occurring.
If you have been hurt whilst working in an office and the harm that you suffered wasn’t your fault, you may feel entitled to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Sussex compensation claim. As long as you can show that you didn’t cause the incident and that your employer was responsible, you should be eligible to make a ‘no win, no fee*’ West Sussex claim against them.
