Tripping Over Trailing Cables

Tripping Over Trailing Cables

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.

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.
