    Common accidents in the workplace in Buckinghamshire


    The workplace is, sadly, an inherently dangerous place. If you are not careful, you can do yourself some pretty serious damage. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can deal with all manner of injuries suffered in the workplace, providing you can demonstrate that they are the fault of somebody else. There are some incidents that we deal with more than others, however. On this page, we are going to introduce you to some of the most common accidents in the workplace in Buckinghamshire.

    Slips, trips and falls

    When it comes to common injuries, you are not going to find anything that happens more frequently. Now, the vast majority of trips in the workplace will not do that much in the way of damage. If you have suffered a lightly bruised knee, you will probably not be able to claim compensation. However, if you have twisted a joint, needed stitches, or something a lot more serious then you may be able to claim compensation.

    Remember, as with all of the common accidents in the workplace in Buckinghamshire, you have to prove that the incident was the fault of your employer. If you left something in an incorrect location and you subsequently trip over it, it is unlikely that you will be able to claim compensation for it.

    Head injuries

    All manner of head injuries can occur in the workplace. In many cases, these head injuries are down to incorrect safety equipment being provided or goods being stored incorrectly. Remember, a hard hat will not completely stop the damage (unless the item that falls on your head is fairly light), but it will go a long way towards limiting the damage. If your employer does not require you to wear a hard hat in an environment where it is likely that head injuries will occur, there is a good chance that you will be able to make a claim for compensation.

    Burns and scalds.

    Hot water, hot items, and certain chemicals can cause burns and scalds. They can generally occur in most environments, but we find that they tend to be most common in restaurants, factories, and construction sites.

    You may suffer from repetitive strain injuries in certain environments. For example, we have helped many office workers claim compensation for long term damage that they have done to the joints in their fingers and hands from excessive typing. As mentioned previously, you must be able to prove that your injuries are the fault of your employer. We will, of course, be able to help you with that.
