Personal injury claims in Sheffield are rare. It is a very safe and pleasant place to live, and while the city has a population of some 563,000 people, the metropolitan area is home to around 1,569,000. Its history is long, with its steel businesses gaining traction as far back as the 19th century. Many other businesses have developed and flourished in the area as well.
Thankfully, injuries of all kinds are uncommon in Sheffield and the surrounding area. However, we all know things can go wrong occasionally, even with the best of intentions. If someone was negligent in their duties or actions, it is possible someone else might then suffer injuries.
Have you been hurt at work?
Work-based accidents are very rare. The introduction of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 in the Seventies was a huge moment in the world of work. The number of accidents, injuries and fatalities countrywide dropped from that moment on, and has never gone back up to the level it was at before.
Now, employers have a framework to adhere to in the world of health and safety. Most employers go above and beyond the minimum requirements regarding health and safety, therefore keeping their employees safe from harm. An accident does not have to be major, or incur major injuries, for a worker to get advice on making a claim. It is always vital to find out as much as you can, and if you do, you are protected by the law and your job should not be at risk for considering claiming.
