    Office accidents in Dagnall

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Dagnall

    The shocking truth is that the office environment holds many potential hazards and the only thing coming between these and the employees is the employer’s willingness to recognise and control these hazards correctly. If this is not done then employees are injured in office accidents in Dagnall that were not their own fault and end up having to hunt for a personal injury solicitor to help them make a compensation claim.

    Most of us think of the office environment as a very safe place to work. There are none of the serious hazards that we associate with manufacturing or the construction injury and as an office worker you expect to return home at the end of the day uninjured. 

    The most common office accident that would be dealt with by a personal injury solicitor would be a slip, trip or fall. Hundreds of this sort of incident happens every year and a leading law firm like Accident Advice Helpline receive calls about them every single day of the week.

    Some of the calls are from people desperate to find a personal injury solicitor because they are losing large amounts of money because they are injured in office accidents in Dagnall. Accident Advice Helpline gives them all the legal help and support that they need and provide this on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis.

    What can Accident Advice Helpline do for you?

    They will start off by proving that the slip, trip or fall was someone else’s fault – this will most likely be your employer. They will ask you a series of questions and the most obvious one is What did you fall over?

    What did you fall over?

    Many injured office workers tell their personal injury solicitor that they fell over a subtle change in floor level on the office or corridor floor. This could be a slope, a small step or even an  abrupt change from one flooring material to another.

    They will be able to make a claim if they can show that there were steps that could have been taken to prevent the fall but were not taken. Some employers have prevented this sort of accident by highlighting the trip hazard.

    They may have done this by improving the lighting in the area which will mean that employees can easily see the hazard. They may also use an eye-catching colour on the slope or step to clearly highlight the change from one flooring material to another.
