A large number of accidents at work are caused by trips over trailing cables. If cables and wires are not properly managed by the responsible individual and are allowed to trail across office and factory floor walkways, and you injure yourself as a result, you may be eligible to claim financial compensation.
If you would like to speak to an experienced personal injury solicitor about a potential claim following a cable trip accident, contact Farleys today on 0125 460 6090 or e-mail us. We accept all accident at work claims on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
Making a Claim for Compensation
In order to make a successful claim for compensation you will be required to prove that your employer, or the individual responsible for managing the cables and wires that caused your accident, did not follow established health and safety guidelines and therefore caused unnecessary risk to employees.
The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSWA) requires your employer to ensure the safety of all employees whilst in the workplace, whilst the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 require that floors are free from obstructions, such as trailing cables. Typically, safety of employees is ensured by conducting a full risk assessment of the workplace, identifying the potential risks and take steps to combat them.
If you suspect that your employer has been negligent in their management of workplace risks, specifically trailing cables and wires, get in touch with a solicitor as soon as possible to discuss a claim.
