Compensation for a head injury in an office

Head injuries can be a serious event regardless of how you incur them, but if they do happen in the office then chances are they are through no fault of your own. Out of any workplace the office is perhaps one that we feel least likely to injure ourselves, and accordingly it’s also one area where we may consider directly making a compensation claim.

The workplace is an area which is strictly governed by health and safety and it’s important that this is a serious consideration for any employer who is looking to take care of the health of their employees. If you feel that your health and safety has been neglected in the workplace then you may look to make a compensation claim.

Whose negligence could lead to an injury of this type?

In general, any injuries which take place in the office are either the direct fault of your employer or another employee, either way you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. If your employer hasn’t provided you with ample safety equipment or hasn’t properly maintained office equipment then you could look to make a claim against them. You could also look to claim against another employee whose negligence may have led to your development of injuries. 

Where could I look to make a claim?

Head injuries can occur in a number of different situations, but some circumstances where you may consider making a claim include:

  • Claims for faulty office equipment
  • Claims for poor office maintenance
  • Claims against another employee
  • Claims for lack of appropriate safety equipment
  • Claims for dangerous wires/potential hazards in the workplace.
