Should you be unlucky enough to be involved in an accident in the office and as a result need to make an office accident compensation claim, a certain amount of advice might be given to you via the company safety officer, usually under the auspices of the Personnel or Human Resources department. It is important to consider that their advice, although well meaning and politely given, is no substitute for contacting a professional accident solicitor who will only be interested in protecting your rights, and not those of your employer.
An office accident is usually recorded in a company’s accident book. Should the accident have caused serious injury, it would be necessary for you to seek medical attention. When pursuing office accident compensation it is always vital to have copies of medical reports and witness information relevant to the accident.
Injury for an accident at the office can range from falls and tumbles in the corridor to RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) and back injuries through lifting heavy objects. Claiming can often be complex because compensation may be affected by the Company’s Health and Safety guidelines; by the injured party’s personal observance of company regulations and also by the involvement of others. The other consideration in bringing a claim against your employer is to do it in such a way as to not sour working relationships.
