Injuries in the work place are thankfully, rare. But when they do happen they can be devastating. Some personal injuries at work don’t seem ‘that bad’ but they can still have an affect on day-to-day life for that person.
We find here at Accident Advice Helpline, that not many people are ‘happy’ about claiming against their employers. They feel it may put their job at risk, that their colleagues won’t see the value in them claiming compensation or it may financially harm the company.
Employers are insured against such happenings and your colleagues are also at risk if there are unsafe practices that need resolving.
