Office accident injury claims, Scotland

Get in touch

Some workplaces are safer than others. While an office may not be the most dangerous working environment, there are still risks.

Employers have a duty to reduce risks where they can. If they fail to do this, they could be liable for office accident injury claims.

Some of the steps employers have to take to manage risk are:

  • Provide safety training and make sure this is up to date.
  • Ensure that the office is maintained.
  • Ensure that all equipment is regularly checked.

Failing to do this can increase the risk of office accidents.

Making a claim

Around 400,000 people are injured in workplace accidents each year. The majority of these are minor.

However, it doesn’t matter how minor you may think your injuries are, if you have been hurt in the office and it isn’t your fault, then you should make an office accident claim.

Not only will this ensure you get any compensation you deserve, but it can also help you access any medical care you need and make sure that those responsible are held to account.

Common causes of injuries in the office include:

  • Slips, trips or falls.
  • Repetitive strain injury.
  • Electric shocks from faulty equipment.
  • Burns.

To begin your claim, you should meet with the team at Jones Whyte. We will take your statement to establish exactly what happened. Then we begin to gather supporting evidence.

This may include witness statements and medical records. During the claims process, we will help you access physiotherapy and other medical care as necessary.

Most personal injury claims are settled out of court. If court action is needed, we will be with you throughout.
