Common accidents in the workplace in Staffordshire Moorlands
Although everyone should have the right to feel safe at work, accidents can sometimes occur. Unfortunately, if health and safety guidelines aren’t implemented strictly, people could sustain serious injuries in the workplace.
Whilst you may not think your job is particularly dangerous, you could be injured by damaged furniture, faulty computer equipment or even torn carpeting. Although these injuries may not be directly related to your job, they can occur in almost any workplace.
Could you make a compensation claim?
If you’ve suffered an injury at work, it may be possible for you to take legal action and you could be awarded compensation. However, simply being hurt at work won’t automatically make you eligible to make a claim. You will still need to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident.
If your bosses didn’t provide a safe working environment or if they didn’t maintain the equipment properly and this caused you to get hurt, you should be able to make a claim against them.
Of course, you will need to have obtained medical help in order to make a claim as well. Providing your medical records show that you accessed medical help after the accident, it’s likely that you will be able to obtain compensation for your injuries.
