Office Accidents

Working in an office may seem like a safe environment but it’s surprising how many office-related injuries there are each year.

Being indoors for much of the time, whether you are seated at a computer, writing, typing or even talking on the phone can pave the way for some of the most common injuries – such as back and neck pains, eye strains, pain in the hands and wrists - to develop.  

As a result, there are many compensation claims arising from accidents and bad working practices in offices.

Can I claim?

Office compensation claims tend to occur due to:

  • Slips, trips or falls from worn-out or loose carpeting, trailing cables, uneven or slippery steps
  • Tripping over an open desk or file drawer or objects left in hallways/walkways
  • Bending or reaching for something while seated in an unstable chair
  • Using a chair in place of a ladder
  • Furniture that is not well maintained or suited to you
  • Faulty electrical cords
  • Poor ventilation, lighting or air quality
  • Lack of training on manual handling work equipment
  • Lifting even small loads (stacks of files, computer paper, a computer monitor, etc.) can lead to injury if done improperly. Your back, neck and shoulders are all susceptible to soft tissue injuries.
  • Health and Safety procedures not being followed
  • Defective Equipment

The good news is that there are comprehensive health & safety regulations in place to ensure that employers take all practical steps to ensure safe working practices and a safe workplace.  When an accident at your workplace happens you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

Recovery Assist solicitors specialise in office accident claims so if you have been injured in the office, why not talk to a member of our team?

Accidents in the office can sometimes seem trivial, but if you've been injured and your employer's negligence is to blame, you shouldn't suffer in silence.

When office accidents happen employees can be worried about the effect a personal injury claim will have on their employment; this shouldn't be of concern.

All employers should have relevant workplace insurance to cover any injury claims that arise from accidents that occur on their premises. So any compensation claim would be made against this policy and should have no effect on your employment status.

It can be a delicate matter claiming against an employer but remember that it is illegal to dismiss an employee on this basis. If you are thinking of making a claim for an office injury, or even if you just want advice give us a call today. If you prefer, you can fill in our on-line claim form.

Recovery Assist solicitors are experts in winning compensation for employees who have suffered injuries in an office environment due to an accident that wasn’t their fault. And remember, we operate on a no win no fee basis.
