    Legal help with a work-related injury in the UK

    Being injured in the workplace is a rarity in the UK. This wasn’t always the case; before the Health and Safety at Work Act came in back in the Seventies, accidents were more common than they are today. However, while a work-related injury in the UK is rare now, there are still times when things can happen that leave people with injuries they should not have had to experience.

    Injuries can happen in many ways, but most of them are entirely preventable if the proper preventative steps are taken. For example, risk assessments increase the chances of people staying safe, because they identify the potential risks and point to things that can be done to prevent them from leading to accidents.

    Examples of how you could experience a work-related injury in the UK

    Slips, trips and falls are very common in lots of circumstances, and they can just as easily happen at work as anywhere else. If risk assessments identify potential hazards in this way, they can be reduced in risk before they have the chance to injure anyone.

    Other risks include falling from a height, which may occur if inadequate protection is provided to ensure this does not happen. Additionally, there could be accidents that may occur with machinery if it is improperly guarded, or if it isn’t maintained regularly, or if people are not trained in how to use it.

    The prospect of claiming compensation

    Some people feel guilty for trying to claim compensation. Yet if you’ve been hurt at work, you must consider how that has affected your life. Perhaps you had to miss work for a time because of your injuries. Did you require treatment or a stay in hospital? Did your injuries lead to an inability to do things you would normally do with no problems at all?
