Injured in an office accident?

According to the Health and Safety Executive, in 2018/19 there were4.7 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.
