About workplace accidents
Common accidents and injuries at work
An accident at work can result in injuries which at best cause minor disruption. At worst they can be life-altering or even fatal.
Of course, there are some industries in which employees are at greater risk than others.
In an office environment the heaviest machinery you’re likely to encounter will be printers and large staplers. On a construction site, however, you will be confronted with a whole host of potentially dangerous equipment.
Whatever the extent or type of potential dangers in your workplace, the attention your employer must pay to health and safety regulations is identical.
Here are some of the most common sectors for which we process accident and injury at work claims:
- Accidents in an office
- Accidents in a warehouse or factory
- Accidents on industrial sites
- Accidents on construction sites
- Agricultural accidents
What causes accidents at work
In general, accidents are caused by a lack of training, preventable hazards and faulty or poorly maintained machinery.
Some accidents are site-specific, such as those caused by the kind of dangerous machinery you find in factories and construction sites. Other injuries are often a result of slips, trips and falls.
In these cases, it may feel like the workplace accident was your own fault. You must remember, though, your employer has a duty of care which includes managing and removing hazards.
If you were injured lifting or carrying something because your employer didn’t give you the proper training, then you were the victim of their negligence. You should therefore be given the legal support and compensation for manual handling injuries.
