When you are injured in an accident at work it can sometimes feel like you’re the only person that this has ever happened to. But you’d be surprised at how common workplace accidents are, and how many people each year are left injured or ill as a result of an accident at work. If this has happened to you, you could stay on our website to read some workplace accident scenarios.
Not only can it be reassuring to realise you’re not alone, it can also be helpful to read about somebody in a similar situation who has claimed personal injury compensation. So if you’ve been injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault and you’re unsure if you could make a claim, reading some workplace accident scenarios is often a good idea.
What accidents and injuries could you claim for?
It’s important to remember that reading about workplace accident scenarios isn’t going to get you the compensation you deserve for your accident at work. You can only find out if you have a viable claim by getting in touch with a personal injury lawyer. For over 15 years, Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim compensation after accidents at work – and here are some of the injuries we have handled claims for:
- Broken bones such as a broken ankle or wrist
- Head injuries caused by a fall or objects falling from height
- Crush injuries after being hit by a forklift or trapping limbs in heavy machinery in a factory
- Stress-related illness
- Noise-related hearing loss
- Facial or eye injuries
- Manual handling injuries, usually to the back or knees
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Sprains and strains after a slip or trip
These are just a few examples of the types of injuries that you could claim compensation for and you’ll find many more work accident scenarios on our website.
