    Due to the nature of the work that is being carried out in some organisations they are likely to have a higher risk of injuries and accidents in the workplace. These injuries will range from minor injuries to more serious ones and even death. In some cases the incidents are simply accidents but in other cases it can be a careless human error or faulty equipment.

    Injuries sustained at work most commonly are trips, slips and falls from wet floors or debris, but you can also have chemical inhalation or burns. People can damage their back when lifting heavy items. Any manual work can lead to strains, fractures and sprains. Electrical accidents are also very common from minor shocks and burns to in the worst cases fatalities. All these accidents can lead to someone wanting to make an accident at work claim in Wigan.
