Experiencing physical violence at work can be very traumatic. Not only might you have physical injuries to deal with, but coming up against violence and aggression at work can also mean that you suffer emotionally and psychologically too. Depending on your job, you might experience physical violence at work from a member of the public or from a colleague. Regardless of how you are hurt, this type of event can be very upsetting and you could be entitled to compensation for the assault at work.

By law, all employees have a right to work in a safe environment and your employer has a duty of care towards you. They must assess the risks of your workplace and put measures in place to minimise the chances of you being harmed or your safety put at risk, including a potential risk of assault or violence. If they fail to protect you through neglect, your employer may be legally liable for your injury and suffering.

If you were injured and have suffered as a result of an assault or fight at work that wasn’t your fault, you might be eligible to make a claim for assault at work compensation for what has happened to you. Call our specialist accident at work team to find out more on 0161 696 6235.

What should I do if I am involved in a fight at work?

If you are involved in a violent altercation at work, during which you are assaulted, the first priority is always to ensure you are protected from further harm and to seek treatment for any injuries you may have. This may involve leaving the premises to seek medical care.

You should ask the medical staff that you see to write a detailed account of your injuries. The next step is for you to write down a detailed account of what happened to you as soon as possible after the assault, while the details are still fresh in your mind. Your employer should be informed and the incident should be logged by the HR team or your supervisor. You should also make a note of any witnesses who saw the incident e.g. colleagues. 

If the police are not called at the time of the incident to take details, you should file a report of crime at your nearest police station as soon as you can. 

You can also then speak to a solicitor to find out if you are able to make a claim for what happened to you.
