Accident at Work Compensation Claims
According to the Health and Safety Executive, slips and trips are the most common causes of accidents at work. Others are often due to a lack of training, insufficient numbers of people to complete the task at hand, or inadequate safety equipment.
You may be worried about making a claim against your employer for compensation regarding an accident at work. But remember, they have a legal duty to protect you, and to provide appropriate health and safety training and equipment. Plus, your employer should be insured to pay your compensation if your claim is successful.
Manual handling can cause back injuries, neck injuries, shoulder injuries, arm injuries, elbow injuries, wrist injuries and hand injuries. Falls from height, or being struck by a moving vehicle or piece of machinery, can cause more serious injuries and is responsible for over half of all fatal injuries to workers.
