    Accident claim in Hythe


    Research suggests an encouraging decrease in the number of people in the UK seeking work and claiming state unemployment benefits. This often varies by the sector of employment, however, with a greater percentage of accidents likely in manual and labouring jobs than would be the case for ‘white collar’ jobs in offices and corporate services.

    One of the most dangerous places to be employed is on a farm, and it is not unusual for farms workers to make an accident claim in Hythe, and in other places all over the UK. Farmers, as with all employers, have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and failure to do this can easily result in a worker being injured through no fault of their own.

    Workplace accidents & long-term unemployment

    There are innumerable causes of accidents in the workplace besides farming accidents, but the following are those most typically encountered by Accident Advice Helpline, some of which result in an accident claim in Hythe being made:

    • Reactions to chemicals and substances, such as preservatives, cleaning products or industrial solvents
    • Accidents involving workplace machinery or tools
    • Vehicular accidents, often when loading or unloading goods and materials for transport
    • Back injuries caused by failures in manual handling procedure
    • Slips, trips and falls, all too often related to spillages or floor-level hazards
    • Falling object injuries

    For people unfortunate enough to have suffered such an injury, Accident Advice Helpline’s unique 30-second claims calculator can quickly give an indication of the typical compensation award. Accidents can have a colossal impact on a persons life. Employers have a particular duty to ensure the safety of their staff from the types of injuries discussed above.

    It is for the employer, for instance, to guarantee adequate training to prevent back injuries or chemical burns. It is for the employer to design and manage systems to prevent machinery injuries. It is unfortunately still very common for employees who suffer from their employer’s negligence to remain uncompensated and suffer in silence because they are concerned about making an accident claim in Hythe against their boss.
