If you have lost your income due to an accident, you may be entitled to claim it back.
Types of accidents
There are a wide range of accidents which can occur in the workplace and these can cause a variety of injuries. There may be a slippage which hasn’t been cleaned up and doesn’t have signage to alert you to the danger, and this can result in a serious incident. There could also be obstacles in the way, such as filing cabinets left open or boxes placed in walkways, and these can also lead to injuries. The types of injuries which can result from workplace accidents include minor bruises and scrapes but broken bones may also occur after a workplace accident.
Effects of accidents
The effects of such an accident are far and wide and the consequences can be drastic. It may be that the injury has caused you to be unable to carry out your work and thus, you may lose your income as a result.
