    Barking and Dagenham accident at work


    Barking and Dagenham accident at work

    Barking and Dagenham is a borough in East London. It was historically part of Essex, but is now viewed as part of outer London, as the city has expanded into neighbouring areas. Its population has surpassed 206,000 people, and they all live in an area covering some 13.93 square miles. As you can imagine, it is densely populated, and the residents work in a wide variety of jobs in the area. Fortunately, it is rare for anyone to have a Barking and Dagenham accident at work. With that said, we all recognise that accidents can happen at any moment and in any location. Indeed, you might have come to this page knowing this, and realising that you have suffered an incident like this.

    Accidents at work have reduced dramatically since the Health and Safety at Work Act first came into force in 1974. Employers work hard to adhere to the Act, and indeed many surpass its requirements, ensuring their employees are always as safe as they can possibly be.

    What happens if something goes wrong at work?

    There have been instances where something has happened that is accepted to be a freak accident, where one or more workers has been injured. But such things are rare. In some cases, when someone is injured while doing their job, it is because of negligence and a failure to pay proper attention. Sometimes, this will be the fault of the worker, but it may potentially be the fault of the employer instead.

    If the health and safety rules have not been properly followed, there is the potential for people to be hurt. This might range from cuts and bruises, to far more serious injuries that put the life of that person at risk. But it is not the extent of the injuries that matters. It is the reason why they happened. If the employer was negligent, the injured employee has every right to find out whether they could claim an appropriate amount in compensation for the injuries.

    Did you have a Barking and Dagenham accident at work?

    If you did, you will know how a Barking and Dagenham accident at work can affect your life from that moment on. Some injuries heal, of course, but you can still be affected mentally and emotionally. Other injuries may never fully heal, and these can lead to consequences in your daily life, and not just at work, either. This is why it is so vital for you to seek advice, and since there is never any obligation to take things further when you call us, you know you are in good and safe hands.
