Accident at work compensation claims


Accident at work compensation claims are not uncommon, and although health and safety procedures have improved over the past ten years, many employers have still been found to have been negligent in the work place. One of the most dangerous industries in the UK is construction and, every year, hundreds of construction workers claim compensation after falls from scaffolding, slips and trips in the work place which were caused by the negligence of their employer or by another employee. Your employer has a duty to protect you at work and to take all reasonable steps to ensure you are safe from harm while you are working.

If he fails in his duties to protect you and his negligence causes accident and injury, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Badly managed warehouses are also a significant contributing factor to accidents at work and serious accidents can have fatal consequences when heavy loads are dropped from height, or after fork lift truck accidents. Accidents at work can happen anywhere and, whether you have tripped over a loose bit of carpet in the office, been hit from falling objects on a building site or slipped on a spillage that was not cleared up in the factory, you can claim compensation for your injuries.

Accidents at work cost the UK tax payer millions of pounds each year when employees are unable to return to work and employers have a responsibility ensure strict health and safety regulations are implemented in the place of work.  If you suffer a serious work injury, you may not be able to return to work for months, or you could be out of work indefinitely. If this is the case, you need to contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to claim the compensation you deserve.
