London Office Accidents & Injuries
Most London-based office workers would consider their workplaces to be very safe indeed. And certainly, when white collar jobs are compared to working in building sites, warehouses, factories and heavy industry, offices are not obviously dangerous. However, all workplaces carry their own inbuilt risks and dangers and office workers are definitely not immune to accidents and injuries.
While most accidents are a dull fact of life, events that can be passed off as nothing more than bad luck, there are many other accidents that could have been avoided. They are accidents that have simply occurred because someone else failed to do their job properly. Here are some statistics from Europe. If an accident has happened to you, and you have been injured through no fault of your own then you made be eligible to make a Personal Injury Claim.
If you, or someone close to you, has experienced physical, emotional or financial loss as the result of someone else’s negligence at work then it is absolutely right that you get the redress you are due. Here at Personal Injury Solicitors London, we are experts in claims involving all sorts of white collar environments, and all sorts of offices.
Causes of Accidents in London Offices
The kind of accidents you might expect to find within an office environment can include anything from slips and trips to electric shocks from machinery malfunction, injuries caused by poor maintenance of premises and their fixtures and fittings and also falls from a height in storerooms and on staircases.
Surprisingly perhaps, industrial diseases such as carbon monoxide poisoning or asbestosis can also occur in offices and accidents involving communal facilities such as staff-rooms, canteens, toilet facilities and car parks can also generate a Personal Injury claim.
Indeed, office accidents can and do occur anywhere where Health and Safety obligations have been badly observed.
Staff as well as visitors and clients, can both suffer and provide the cause for an accident, especially in situations where the heady mix of a busy workplace, untidy storage of documents, electrical cables and technology, unloved facilities and external management pressures all make a negative impact.
While no one can restore your life to exactly the way things were before, prior to a serious accident in a work environment, we can still help you rectify your losses with compensation in the form of a Personal Injury claim award.

How to Make an Office Accident Compensation Claim
When you first call you will be asked for some details about exactly what has happened to you at work. It is worth thinking about this now, in advance of calling, and writing down all the details you can to help jog your memory.
Sometimes even the most insignificant detail of information can make all the difference to the outcome – and also to the compensation award we can claim on your behalf. So, don’t discount things you might feel are irrelevant. Tell us everything and let us take a view on your plight. Here is a checklist of questions that a solicitor will want to know the answers to:
- Tell us what exactly happened to you or the victim of the accident you are assisting?
- Tell us when, where, how and why your accident happened? You should also write down all the important times and date details you can remember so we can build a picture of the timeline of your claim.
- Tell us who is responsible for your illness or personal injury?
- Please tell us if you are the victim of the accident or if you are you calling to make a personal injury claim on behalf of someone else?
- Please detail all the financial losses you have suffered due to your accident as well as all the physical or emotional injuries you (or the person you are representing) have suffered too? To help order your thoughts, it might help to write the information down under separate headings of financial, physical and emotional losses on a sheet of paper.
When we have got everything straight, we will use the details you have provided us to help establish the facts of your case and we can then decide exactly how your information fits specifically within the law and any legal obligations that might specifically apply to you as a customer, visitor or staff member injured in an office workplace.
Whatever your injury, and whatever your story, your claim is important to us. We work on the basis that access to justice is not only a basic human right for everyone but also something that should not be available for everyone, regardless of their ability to pay. And let us reassure you now. The hopelessness and insecurity that you and your family are undergoing, as a result of your injuries and accident will pass. With our help it can actually be put successfully behind you.
Make no mistake, the worries you already have should not be added to by any uncertainty surrounding a legal action or advice – and how much it might cost you down the line.
