Most workers don’t consider the office to be a dangerous place, and in most cases you would be correct. However, that’s not to mean that accidents can’t happen. Over the last decade more and more office space has been developed across Leicestershire, and with that has come an increase in office injury claims.
Types of Office Injury Claim Cases
Typically our solicitors have represented office workers across the UK and Leicester with the following types of scenario when pursing a personal injury claim.
- Being hurt with office machinery and equipment
- Electric shocks from computers and other items
- Repetitive strain injury or RSI
- Tripping over power cables and other hazards and obstructions
- Slips on wet floors from water leaks and cleaning
- Being assaulted by another employee or co-worker
Are You Worried About Making a Claim?
Many office workers will be rightfully concerned about making a personal injury claim against their current or past place of work and employer. However, all companies and businesses in Leicester will have insurance policies that are designed to handle instances such as this.
This means that any office injury claim that you make will not mean your employer is financially impacted as it will be paid for via an insurance scheme.
All employers and businesses have a legal duty of care towards their workers and if our solicitors are able to prove a dereliction in health and safety legislation then you could have a case.
In addition to that, it’s against the law for an employer to discriminate against an office worker who has taken legal action or submitted an office accident claim. With that in mind, we treat all calls with the utmost confidentiality.
