Accident & injuries at work
Accidents at work can sometimes be caused by the failure of an employer or other staff members to follow health and safety rules and legislation. For those who are unfortunate to suffer such an accident, the impact can be significantly detrimental to their ability to work as well as the physical and financial restrictions to them and their families.
If an employer has failed in their duty to provide a safe environment, which has caused an employee to suffer injury or illness, you may be able to seek compensation.
There are many different accidents that can happen in the workplace. They can include:
- Manual handling accidents
- Falls from height
- Accidents by defective equipment/machinery
- Slips, trips or falls
- Building site accidents
- Accidents caused by the fault of another employee
- Loss or impaired sight
- Loss or impaired hearing
- Injury or disease caused by working conditions
- Repetitive strain injury
Your injuries may have stopped you from being able to carry on with everyday life, which can be frustrating for both you and your family. You will also have to deal with the physical pain of the injury and, potentially, any loss of income if you are unable to work.
