Ever wondered how dangerous your workplace could be? At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re in no doubt at all that accidents can happen in the workplace – and we also know that many such accidents occur because there are insufficient safety measures in place. If you need an accident solicitor in Wigan for claims advice after a workplace accident, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline now.
Employers need to be on the ball. Safety awareness and accident prevention should be enshrined in policy and procedure, and put into practice by everyone, from the bosses to the most junior members of the workforce. That way, your chances of requiring the services of an accident solicitor in Wigan will be reduced.
Safety concerns us all
When you consider the facts and figures for workplace accidents and injuries, you’ll see that workplace safety is something that should concern society as a whole:
- In 2013/14 there were 133 deaths in the workplace.
- In 2012/13, there were 175,000 work absences of seven or more days
- In 2011/12 over a million people had a work-related illness of some kind
- 2.7 million days were taken off during the 2011/12 year for work-related injury and illness
- Almost £14 billion was lost in 2010/11 because of workplace injury and illness
At Accident Advice Helpline, we would suggest that many workplace-related injuries and illnesses (and consequently, claims through an accident solicitor in Wigan) could be avoided if proper safety measures were put in place, and we urge companies to think carefully about their employees’ health and safety.
If you’re an employee who has suffered injury or illness because of work, then you could be eligible to claim compensation. Through taking time off work, you might well have found that you are struggling with money – and, of course, there is the pain and inconvenience.
A successfully settled case will mean that you get a payout, which will help you a lot. Part of the payout will be for the accident and injury, and another part will be for the expenses you have incurred as a result of your injury.
