    If you work in a large office, it’s likely that you’ll occasionally have to submit to being involved in a fire drill. Most workers, except those who have put themselves forward as fire marshals, don’t take these exercises particularly seriously. Some look at them as an unnecessary annoyance that takes them away from their work, while others see them as an opportunity to have a quick skive, a chinwag with colleagues and perhaps a cheeky cigarette.

    Companies have a legal responsibility to make sure they are prepared in the event that fire does break out on their premises. They need to have a plan on how to evacuate their workers as quickly and safely as possible. All fire exits in an office must be kept clear at all times to allow workers to escape should the worst happen. In some cases, having to move obstructions in front of a fire exit could mean the difference between life and death.

    If you’ve been caught in an office fire, suffered an injury in the process and feel that you might have got off more lightly if your employer had taken greater care, you might be able to use the services of top-class no win no fee Brockenhurst solicitor to sue your employer for compensation.

    Using the above situation as a prime example; if your no win no fee Brockenhurst solicitor could prove that a blocked fire exit had impeded your exit from a burning building, you could be line for a pretty decent compensation payout, depending on the severity of your injuries. As well as damages for your injuries, you might also be able up make a claim for any income you lost while you were convalescing or any expenses you had to meet as result of being hurt.

    Don’t worry about taking action against your employer. It will be against the law for your superiors to discriminate against you in any way while you’re taking personal injury action. If you feel you are being made to suffer as a result of your decision to take action, you might be able to launch a discrimination case, perhaps adding to your compensation pay-out.
