Falls, trips and slips are the most common causes of workplace accidents.
Attwaters Jameson Hill’s Personal Injury specialists have satisfied claims for an almost endless list of accidents of this nature, including:
- tripping over obstacles left in walkways or around a workstation
- tripping over loose cabling, potholes or uneven walkways
- slipping on spillages which have not been cleaned or objects that have fallen to the floor
- slipping on floors that are still wet from being cleaned, or slipping simply because the floor surface itself is unsuitable
- falling on stairs due to inadequate lighting, poor maintenance/design, or lacking a handrail
- objects falling from a height, either from machinery or dropped by employees, or simply the fabric of the building itself falling apart
The obligation to provide a safe working environment does not just apply to the building in which you work, but to the whole of the premises for which your employer is responsible, including the grounds and car park.
Health and Safety laws exist to protect you at work. If you are injured because your employer is negligent or does not follow the law, you are likely to have a claim. Even if your accident hasn’t caused you to take time off work, you can still claim compensation for the injury itself.
This is why Attwaters Jameson Hill’s Personal Injury solicitors are here.
We pledge to provide every client with outstanding personal service and communication, unrivalled industry knowledge and a proven track record of successfully representing clients regarding workplace accident claims.
Whenever we can, we will obtain an interim payment from the responsible party’s insurers to assist with any financial hardship you have been caused and to pay for treatment privately.
If you think you may have grounds for a workplace accident claim, Attwaters Jameson Hill will offer you a jargon-free consultation and assessment free of charge.
