    Accident at work claim in Chesterfield

    Historically, Chesterfield has been a center for manufacturing and industrial work particularly concentrated in its prominent factories around the area. Even today, the legacy of the manufacturing industry can still be felt in the town: in fact, the manufacturing industry is so important to Chesterfield that the percentage of Chesterfield residents employed in the manufacturing industry is well above anywhere other region in the United Kingdom.

    It may be sobering to know, then, that while 1 in 10 people working in the United Kingdom work in the manufacturing industry, the industry also accounts for almost 20% of all reported injuries and fatalities to employees in the workplace. What this means is that the industry that Chesterfield relies on also has a significant number of workplace accidents over and above many other industries in the United Kingdom – and that the people of Chesterfield need reliable, professional legal support if they are injured in an accident that was not their fault and they wish to begin an accident at work claim in Chesterfield.

    What are the most common types of accidents?

    Within the manufacturing industry that makes up much of Chesterfield’s economy, some of the most frequent types of accidents are slips, trips and falls, followed quickly by being injured by falling objects or moving items, machinery and mechanical accidents, and handling.

    If you’ve been injured during an accident in the workplace – especially if it took place within the manufacturing industry – and your accident was not your own fault and occurred within the most recent three years, then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you claim the compensation you require to cover the costs of your injuries.
