Accidents at work can happen no matter where you are employed. Across all professions in all sectors, workers suffer different injuries in different roles, but work-related accidents nonetheless.
With that in mind, if you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, you may be left wondering if you can claim compensation given the different injuries in different roles. Are some accidents exempt, or can you claim regardless of where you work and who you work for?
Claiming for different injuries in different roles
No matter the industry you are employed in, regardless of the different injuries in different roles, if you have suffered work-related injury or illness through no fault of your own, you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation.
When you are at work, your employer has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety. When you suffer an accident at work, or sustain an occupational illness due to your employer’s negligence, they can be held liable for the harm and distress you have been made to endure.
Given the different injuries in different roles, your employer’s negligence may not be apparent. However, if you have not undertaken sufficient training, have been pressured to work additional long hours, or your workplace and equipment is poorly maintained, and as such you have suffered an injury, your employer could face liability.
