In common with most other areas in the UK, the service sector in Stockport is a major employer. Ranging from hairdressers to builders, the service sector employs a huge number of people – you give them a call when you need a service or a job carrying out. If you are employed in the service sector, there are rules and regulations that keep you safe when you are at work. If your employer has not followed these rules and you have been injured as a result, you may be entitled to receive accident at work compensation in Stockport.
Accidents in the service sector
Some accidents result in very severe injuries. If you take the construction industry as an example, a fall from scaffolding or an accident involving heavy machinery can result in life-changing and even life-threatening injuries. On the other hand, hundreds of employees suffer a slip, trip or fall every week and, whilst their injuries may not be life threatening, they can seriously impact the injured person’s lifestyle and finances.
Just about every occupation is at risk from slipping, tripping or falling. If you are a hairdresser who has slipped on some shampoo that was not cleared up or a shop worker who has fallen over some stock that has not been put away, you may be able to start a personal injury claim to get some accident at work compensation in Stockport.
