Office Injury Compensation

Many injuries occur every year in the workplace and can leave employees with serious injuries. The types of accidents suffered can include falling at work, slipping, being injured by machinery and injuries whilst moving heavy goods. These problems can result in the employee suffering long term discomfort. Injuries can be suffered in a range of workplaces including construction sites, warehouses, shops and offices.

Your accident at work may be caused because of your employers negligence. If so the employer will be responsible for any kind of injury that happens to the employee. The employer has a duty to ensure employees have a safe working environment. The employer has a duty to conduct risk assessments and provide adequate equipment to workers.

An accident may occur due to obsolete machines, short circuits, faulty equipment and untrained employees. If the accident occurs due to your employers negligence you are entitled to make an office injury compensation claim against your employer.

Employers have insurance coverage in place to deal with such situations. If an employer fails in their duty towards the employee he can be held liable for the accident and resulting injuries and losses. Employers should keep a check that workplace conditions do not harm employees in any way. They should also remove a factor that may cause harm to employees.

The losses that can be recovered in a compensation claim include loss of earnings, medical expenses, treatment costs and transport costs.

Trip on highway
Mrs J tripped on a pothole whilst crossing a service road running parallel to a main road, fracturing her shoulder, wrist and ankle. The Council initially denied full liability for her accident alleging Mrs J was partly to blame for not avoiding the pothole. Cooks arranged a Conference with a barrister and on his advice rejected this. After intense negotiations Mrs J was awarded £17,000.00 she said:
"I had help from the start regarding my claim and found the advice very reassuring. I have never had to make a claim before so was apprehensive but you did a lot to alleviate my worries. Thanks again for all your help and support."
