As you may well know, the workplace can be an inherently dangerous place. This is why many of the claims that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline are related to injuries in the workplace. On this page, we are going to highlight some of the most common accidents in the workplace in Bromley. Remember, these are just the most likely accidents to happen in the workplace. Even if your particular incident does not appear on this list, you may still be able to make a claim.
Trips, slips, and falls
This type of incident is, without a doubt, one of the most common accidents in the workplace in Bromley. This is because they can occur in all manner of different environments. For example, you could just as easily trip over something in an office as you would on a construction site.
We are able to deal with all manner of injuries here. Many accidents are caused by stock or materials being left out of place. We can also assist those who may have slipped on wet floors and the like.
Falls from height
This is another common incident that we deal with. You do not even have to fall from that high in order to be injured. Many people have been seriously injured by falling off nothing more than a step ladder. Of course, we can also help with falls from higher heights. This includes falls from scaffolding.
Many of the falls from height that we deal with here at Accident Advice Helpline are related to incorrect training or incorrect safety procedures (e.g. being given incorrect or faulty equipment).
Burns and scalds
This includes all manner of different injuries. Now, most people think that burns and scalds tend to happen in catering environments more than any other environment. They do not though. In Bromley, we deal with many cases which involve chemical burns, or even burns suffered whilst working on a construction site or in a factory environment.
A number of things can cause head injuries. Remember, just because you are wearing a hard hat on a site does not necessarily mean that you are immune to head injuries there. Many people, of course, are injured by falling materials and other falling debris. We have also dealt with a number of cases related to people working in warehouses who have had stock land on their heads. The same can happen in retail environments.
