Whether you work in an office as an administrator or are employed as a warehouse assistant, having an accident and suffering a personal injury at work is probably the last thing on your mind when you go into work every day.
But accidents have the potential to happen anywhere, at any time, and the injuries suffered can range from minor to life-changing.
If you’re amongst the hundreds of people who suffer a personal injury at work every year, and you believe somebody else is to blame for your accident, there’s a chance you could claim personal injury compensation within three years of your accident.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we’ve been helping people claim compensation since 2000 and our personal injury advisers offer confidential, no-obligation advice, so you have nothing to lose by finding out more about our services.
What type of accident occurred?
There are any number of different types of accident which could occur at work – here are a few examples of the most common:
- Fall from height, such as a fall from scaffolding or off a ladder
- Slip, trip or fall, perhaps on a wet floor or damaged flooring
- Injured by objects falling from height
- Electrocuted by faulty equipment or machinery
- Crush injuries sustained after limbs are trapped in machinery with moving parts
- Struck by a moving vehicle such as a car, forklift truck or tractor
The type of accident you are involved in will depend on the industry you work in, and some industries have a higher risk of accidents than others, such as the agricultural or construction industries.
However you still have a right to be safe at work and if your employer has not met their duties in regards to keeping you safe then you could have a viable personal injury claim if you are injured as a result of their negligence. We can help you find out how much compensation you could be entitled to; just take the 30-second test on our website.
