All jobs have an element of risk, whether you work as a driver, in a factory, or on a building site, there are always dangers that you face on a daily basis and the number of work accident compensation claims that are submitted each year certainly backs this up.
What are Europe’s most dangerous jobs?
Almost any job can have a certain element of danger attached to it, but there are some which are more risky than others. If you were wondering, here are just 5 of Europe’s most dangerous jobs:
- Lumberjack – Climbing trees with a chain saw in your hand is never a good combination, hence why this is one of Europe’s most dangerous jobs going.
- Road worker – Spending all day dodging cars travelling up to 70mph is always going to be a dangerous job and increase your chances of being involved in a road traffic accident
- Window cleaner – Scaling dizzy heights either on a ladder or even a winch is not a job for the faint hearted with no room for errors, slips, trips or falls
- Miner – For centuries the task of going hundreds of feet underground to collect coal or other substances has made mining a very dangerous occupation
- Fire fighter – Rushing into burning buildings for a living is always going to put you in danger, as well as increasing your chances of suffering an accident in the workplace.
Am I entitled to make a work accident claim if I’ve been injured?
Being injured in any type of accident can be a traumatic experience. If you’ve been injured at work in the past 3 years, in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.
Compensation not only covers things like medical expenses, it can also help you out if you are unable to work due to your injuries and therefore are affected by a loss of earnings.
