Bristol is settled on the border between South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. With around 442,000 residents, there are only seven other cities in the UK that are larger than this one. Since it is a city, many people who live in Bristol also work there. Moreover, plenty more come into the city each day to work as well. Even with this in mind, only a small minority will ever put in a Bristol accident at work compensation claim.
There is one good reason for this. The fact is the exceptional health and safety standards in operation today have made a huge difference to the safety of many workers throughout the UK. That’s why the accident statistics today make very encouraging reading when compared to decades gone by.
Of course, the term ‘accident at work’ could apply to a whole myriad of examples. We don’t have the room here to cover them all. Indeed, many situations and careers have their own potential risks, and so even one example of an injury could potentially come in many forms.
A good example would be broken bones. You might break a bone in your finger or in your leg, or suffer multiple broken ribs in a fall. Even the severity of a break can help determine the likely amount of compensation you may potentially get in the event your claim is successful. For instance, a hairline fracture is obviously not generally as serious as a broken bone where the bone sticks through the skin and requires surgery to pin it in place.
