Accident At Work
All employers have a responsibility to keep the work environment safe and provide you with the necessary training and protective equipment to be able to complete the work safely. Your employer is also responsible for ensuring that the people you work with adhere to safety procedures and behave appropriately. Unfortunately this does not always happen and many workplace accidents are caused as a result of their employer’s negligence.
If you have suffered an injury or ill health due to an accident at work you could be entitled to compensation. Accidents are often serious and require time off, resulting in a loss of income. Claiming compensation can give you the money not only to reimburse you but to get you back on your feet. A specialist solicitor will be able to review the details of your accident, provide you with expert advice and explain the next steps to take.
Accidents at work are not confined to those commonly thought of as dangerous, such as construction or manufacturing. Whether you work in an office, in retail or work outdoors accidents are all too common.
Slips, trips and falls account for a large number of compensation claims with injuries incurred including head, neck and back injuries, cuts, sprains and pulled muscles.
Where there are vehicles of any kind, there’s potential for accidents which include being struck or run over, falling from the vehicle, getting struck by objects that have fallen from the vehicle itself or crushed by a vehicle that has overturned.
Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI’s) comprise of many work induced injuries and are often so severe that they permanently impair a workers ability to perform his or her job.
Overexertion through improper lifting or manually lifting heavy objects will eventually lead to wear and tear on the body, strained muscles and back injury being the two main concerns.
Varying degrees of burns, the inhalation of toxic fumes and loss of hearing can happen as a result of an explosion frequently caused by risk factors such as improperly stored combustible materials or open flames.
One common cause of workplace injury is violence. It is the duty of the employer to ensure that proper training and grievance procedures are in place and that any volatile co-workers are removed immediately.
The chances of being injured by a falling object or walking into an object are higher than you might think. A tool falling on a construction workers head perhaps or an office worker walking into a filing cabinet that has been left open and unattended.
