If you’ve been injured in an accident in the office, you may have a claim for compensation. 

Injured in an office accident?

According to the Health and Safety Executive, in 2017/18 there were 3.9 million working days lost, due to workplace injury.

Common office accidents include:

  • Slips on wet floors
  • Falling or tripping over obstacles left in walkways
  • Tripping on wires
  • Knocking yourself on an open drawer
  • Slips, trips and falls

Repetitive strain injury is also a common injury, as are other musculoskeletal conditions relating to posture, back and neck. 

Why make an office accident claim?

Thankfully, most incidents are not major, and sufferers make a full recovery. But if the accident could have been prevented, your employer may be negligent in their duty of care to you.

Making a claim could give you the financial compensation you need to reduce some of the money worries you might face when having to take time off work to recover.

Our accident at work solicitors have years of experience in making these kinds of claim. They will build a case and guide you through the process to help you achieve maximum compensation. We also offer a No Win No Fee* service.

How much compensation will I receive for an office injury claim?

Amounts awarded depend on your injury and how severe it is. Our compensation calculator gives an idea of the amounts you could be awarded, but a chat with our legal advisors will give you advice tailored to your individual circumstances.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

You have three years in which to make a claim for an office accident.

I think I have a claim – what do I do next?

Make sure you have written down details of the accident and reported it in the works accident book. Keep your own records too, including dates, circumstances and any photographic evidence.

You will need to seek medical attention for treatment and to make sure the injuries are noted in your medical records.
