Office Accident and Injury Claims Bolton
Offices are typically safe environments, but that’s not to say that accidents and injuries cannot occur. Our personal injury solicitors can offer help and support to you if you have been hurt whilst at work and want to explore your compensation options.
If an employer fails to take appropriate action and this results in an injury to an employee then the employer could be deemed as negligent and may have to pay the employee compensation. If an employer has taken all the reasonable steps but an employee still sustains an injury then an employee could still make a claim provided the employee was not at fault for his or her injuries.
Employers should also be aware that anyone that comes into the office and suffers an injury, such as cleaners or delivery people, could also make an office injury claim. In addition to compensation for the injuries suffered at work, anyone who is injured can claim any other consequential loss, which is loss that can be attributed to the injury in the office, for example, medical bills and loss of income.
We work on a no win no fee* approach for all office injury claims in Bolton, and offer a free phone consultation to start with which is 100% confidential. Call us today if you would like to find out more on 01204354078.
Worried About Your Employer?
When you call us we treat your conversation with us with the utmost confidentiality. What you should be aware of though, is that even if you still work for your employer when making a claim for office accident compensation, is that you should not be concerned.
This is because all businesses in Bolton are required by law to have insurance policies designed to protect themselves against personal injury and accident claims by their employees. So if you do decide to make a claim, your employer will not be hit financially.
In addition to that, UK employment law makes it illegal for companies to discriminate against their staff who have taken legal action of this nature. This means you should be put at ease when discussing any potential compensation so please call us to discuss the individual merits of your potential case.
If you would like to make a claim against your employer for an injury that you have suffered in the workplace then you should make a claim within three years of the date of the accident. You can only make a claim outside of this time period with special permission from the court which will only be granted in limited circumstances.
