There are many ways in which an employee may have an accident at work. For example:
- Poor safety training
- Equipment malfunction or failure
- Lifting of loads that are too heavy
- Slipping or tripping on hazards that have not been properly marked
- Exposure to toxic materials such as explosives, gases or toxic chemicals
Sometimes these workplace injuries can take years to develop. Workers with long exposure to loud noises may begin to suffer from deafness, those using power tools may develop vibration white finger or those in the construction industry may be diagnosed with asbestosis. Whatever your workplace injury is, you may suffer serious consequences so you may want to consider making a claim for compensation.
If your accident took place within the last three years, was someone else’s fault (in cases of industrial injury, this is usually another member of staff or the employer itself) and required medical attention you may be eligible to pursue a payout.
