    Personal injury solicitor in Finchley

    Many residents of Finchley work in an office and, along with all other office workers in the UK, they hope that they will never have to hunt for a personal injury solicitor in Finchley because they have had an accident that was not their fault at work. A personal injury solicitor is a legal professional that assists injured people to make a claim for compensation from the person or organisation that was at fault for their accident – this is usually their employer.

    Office accidents and a personal injury solicitor in Finchley

    Office workers rarely worry about having accidents at work because we all associate work place accidents with heavy industries like manufacture and construction where workers have to use dangerous machinery or chemicals or may be working at height using raised platforms, scaffolding or ladders.

    However, offices are the scene of hundreds of workplace accidents every year and a personal injury solicitor in Finchley will spend a large part of his or her working week dealing with this sort of accident claim. The best course of action after this type of accident is to ring us at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Get in touch with our team of highly-trained professional advisers. Alternatively you can find the unique 30 second test on our website. It will give you an indication of whether your injury claim is likely to be successful and provide you with an estimate of the compensation that you may get.

    The ideal situation, however, is to avoid an accident in the first place and then a personal injury solicitor does not have to become involved at all!

    Preventing an injury claim work for office accidents

    1. Good housekeeping should be a priority in any office environment – if there is nothing on the floor then employees cannot fall over it! Papers, files and boxes should be stored appropriately on shelves and in cupboards. Deliveries will need to be put away promptly and refuse stored only in designated areas.
    2. Storage is obviously vital but can become a hazard itself if it is not appropriate and well maintained. Storage should be both stable and easily accessible and if anything is stored up on high shelves a ladder or steps must be provided so that employees can get at it without putting themselves at risk.
    3. Trailing cables are a classic office hazard but do not have to be there at all. One of the most effective ways of preventing trailing cables is to have an adequate number of power and telephone sockets so that cables do not need to cross floor areas in the first place. Failing this, they should be fixed against walls or ceilings or they can be enclosed in appropriate cover.
