Sadly, thousands of people suffer an injury that was not their fault at work every year. Injuries can involve slips, trips and falls, electrocutions, falls from a height, manual handling injuries and over-use injuries such as repetitive strain injury.

This prompts many people to claim injuries at work compensation to try and make their lives a little easier. Below are listed some common concerns of people who are considering making an injuries at work compensation claim.
