Every year there are numerous amounts of people who are injured whilst at work through no fault of their own.
A very common way, in which people are injured at work, is as a result of falling down stairs. Any stairwell at work should be in a safe condition. The stairs should have a secure banister, not be wet or slippery, have safety grips and secure carpeting if in use, lighting that works if applicable and not have any obstructions causing a trip hazard.
A recent case involving someone being injured on a stairwell was as a result of a banister not being secure and coming loose from the wall. The worker involved fell down the stairs, injuring his shoulder and head.
The man required hospital treatment for his injuries and he later decided to make Personal Injury Claim for Injury Compensation.
The man won his Injury Compensation case as it was decided that the company he worked for, where responsible as they had not maintained the banister and it was not in a good state of repair.
If you have fallen down stairs at work and you believe it was not your own fault, then a Personal Injury Claim may be possible.
