An accident at work can result in injuries which at best cause minor disruption. At worst they can be life-altering or even fatal.
What will compensation cover?
Financial compensation for your injury doesn’t just cover the physical harm to your body. A number of other factors could influence your compensation pay out too, such as:
- Emotional trauma
- Care and support, whether you are paying or receiving free care from family/friends
- Loss of earnings from time off work
- Future loss of income
- Costs for any home or car adaptations
- Changes to your working ability
Common accidents and injuries at work
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 while working 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 you deserve.
