    Thursdays in November the most common day for workplace injuries

    By David Brown on December 6, 2014

    You might find it hard to believe, but statistics show that Thursdays in November are the most common day for workplace injuries to occur. An analysis of figures from The Injuries Board (2013) revealed that the most common day for workplace injuries resulting in compensation are Thursdays in November. Sunday is the least likely day for accidents to happen.

    With the average payout for a workplace accident rising to €28,886 from €27,286 in 2012, it seems men are twice as likely to sustain an injury at work as women. Last year, the largest individual compensation payout was for a man who became trapped in a machine and received €432,001.

    In 2013, the Injuries Board paid out €44 million for 826 claims relating to workplace accidents – that’s double the figure paid out for the previous year, with slips, trips and falls accounting for the majority (30.8%) of all workplace accident compensation settlements.

    Whilst to some extent you need to take responsibility for your own safety at work, your employer also has a duty to keep you safe and ensure that the environment you are working in and any equipment you use is safe and fit for purpose. If you feel that this has not happened and you have been injured as a result, you might want to consider claiming personal injury compensation.

    Why make a claim?

    It’s easy to dismiss the amount of compensation claims as reliance on ‘compensation culture’, but if you have been seriously injured and forced to take time off work to recover, or have been left with life-changing injuries, you may suffer loss of earnings and be unable to support yourself or your family financially.

    In cases like these, a compensation payout could be the difference between being able to pay your bills and medical expenses and losing your home. Bear in mind that the amount of compensation you’ll receive will reflect not only the severity of your injuries, but also any loss of earnings and expenses incurred as a result of your accident.
