Common accidents in the workplace in South Hams
Slip, trip and fall accidents that take place in the workplace are often caused by relatively minor incidents of negligence that could have been easily avoided if employers took a more active interest in ensuring that health and safety procedures were followed correctly.
In many cases, simple maintenance issues are often to blame. Imperfections on office flooring, upturned carpets or damaged floor tiles can quite easily result in trip risks. Loose wiring might also be a potential problem, as will any spilled liquid that is not cleared up as quickly as possible.
The amount that you could stand to win after being injured in a slip, trip or fall accident at work will be very much dependent on the severity of the injuries that you sustained. If you would like to get some sort of a feel for the type of money you could be looking at, you would be very well advised to make use of our compensation calculator, which can be found right here on this website. Bang in a few details about what happened to you, and you’ll be furnished with a ball park figure of what you might be able to expect.
