When you work for a company or business, you should be able to expect a number of things from your employer. For example, ongoing training might be required, depending on the line of work you are in. Similarly any safety equipment required should be provided to you, along with equipment needed to do the job you are employed to do.
Your employer also has a duty of care to make sure you are always safe and free from any potential harm. Things can go wrong in the office, of course, but there are situations that may occur that could lead to you suffer an accident or injury. These are not very common, because health and safety is an important aspect of a safe workplace. However, there have been occasions when things have gone wrong.
How are people injured at work?
There are all kinds of ways people may potentially be injured while doing their job. Potential injuries might depend on the nature of the work you do for example, as well as how and where it is performed. Someone working at an office desk all day is less likely to experience serious injury than someone working on a building site. However, with that said, office-related injuries such as repetitive strain injury can still cause significant problems.
Accident Advice Helpline is one of a number of companies that have dealt with a variety of claims relating to the work people do. While some cases are not due to negligence on the part of the employer, some staff negligence compensation can and has been paid in situations where staff have been hurt because a third party was negligent.
Are you wondering if you could make a claim?
This is a fair point and one you may be thinking about if you have been hurt at work. Even if that injury wasn’t recent, you may still be able to claim if it occurred within the last three years.
