    Workplace accident compensation in Chepstow

    Workplace accidents should be quite unusual occurrences, and indeed, many people go through their working lives without ever suffering even a minor injury as the result of a workplace accident. However, it’s a sad fact that people do get injured at work every year. If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you suffered an injury at work and you’re looking to claim workplace accident compensation in Chepstow.

    Workplace accidents: the statistics

    During the 2013-14 financial year, more than 600,000 people were involved in an accident at work. Over 200,000 of these incidents required absence from work for more than three days. In fact, nearly two million working days were lost because of slips and trips, and handling-related injuries, alone. That’s a staggering number of people hurt in workplace accidents each year.

    When slips and trips happen, it can be because of obstacles on the floor, or wet or polished floors being left with no signs to warn the people who walk on them. The injuries sustained can be severe, too. Some people break limbs, or suffer head injuries. Handling injuries can happen because people haven’t been properly trained in lifting techniques. If something heavy is lifted incorrectly, it can easily cause back injuries.
