Office Workplace Claims
Over £90 million compensation recovered for our UK clients – Russell Worth Solicitors
Offices may not be the most obvious place to suffer an injury. But if offices were safe, there would be no need for the numerous regulations that exist to protect office workers – and if you are unlucky enough to be involved in an accident in your office workplace, the consequences can affect you as much as any type of accident.
Thousands of people are involved in office accidents every year – and if your employer hasn’t made sure you are safe at work, you could be entitled to compensation.
“Outstanding client service from start to finish. From the very first time I called Russell Worth I was impressed with their friendly professionalism. I had called a number of the TV advertised compensation lawyers and large firms with impressive websites and received nothing but poor service from what appeared to be over-worked and under-trained staff. I had hesitated to call RWS because they are located at the other end of the country to me, but I’m so glad I made that call. RWS are just the very best at listening, understanding my situation, putting me at ease and coming up quickly with a plan of action that resulted in more compensation than I had expected possible. Actually, the TV advertised legal firms had told me I couldn’t expect any compensation for my injuries. Thanks heavens for RWS!!”
Your employer has a duty to ensure that your workplace is safe for you to use, and must take reasonable precautions to ensure your safety. But all too often, employers don’t provide the correct equipment, don’t make sure entrance and exit to the workplace are safe, and don’t give proper training leaving employees to face the consequences – and even if you think you are self employed, you may still be covered, and have the same rights as an employed person.
