Compensation for a broken chair at work

As an area where we spend a great deal of time, the workplace is one area where we want to feel safe and secure at all times and the Government works very hard to ensure that this is possible with strict rules and regulations around safety in the workplace. Although accidents do happen, sometimes they occur in areas that you wouldn’t even consider and if you work in an office job then you may find that a broken chair could be one of the biggest hazards in your workplace.

If you do fall victim to a broken chair then chances are that you could actually be left with serious leg, arm and back injuries. If you this happened through poor maintenance of equipment within the workplace, then you could consider a claim against your employer.

What are my rights if I’m injured at work?

Workplace injuries are not uncommon in the UK and although many employers work hard to ensure that you are safe at work, unfortunately accidents do still happen. The UK Government is incredibly strict with workplace health and safety and there are a number of laws put in place to protect employees who feel that they have been the victim of workplace negligence.

The law dictates that an employer must take all reasonable measures to protect employees at work. This means providing adequate training and safety equipment and ensuring that all safety procedures within the workplace are adequately followed. Failure to do this could leave you eligible to make a compensation claim.

What type of injuries could I consider making a claim for?

If you do fall victim to a broken chair at work then you could look to claim for:

  • Injuries to your arms and wrists
  • Injuries to your back
  • Injuries to your ankle
  • Injuries to your legs
  • Head and neck injuries from a substantial fall.
