When workplace accidents occur, they can cause all sorts of injuries. Depending on the accident, and the nature of your workplace, you could have sustained significant harm. If your job involves working at height, for example, a fall could be catastrophic.
Of course, your employer should take all the necessary steps to ensure that you’re safe at work. This could involve providing you with additional training or supplying up-to-date equipment for you to use.
If they fail in their duty to provide a safe workplace, you could take action against them. If you’ve been hurt at work and you weren’t at fault, you may want to explore the possibility of making an injury claim in South Bucks.
Claiming for workplace injuries
Unfortunately, a workplace injury is often directly linked to your job role. Although this isn’t surprising, it may mean that you’re unable to work for quite some time. If you suffer a repetitive strain injury, for example, performing your role as usual could exacerbate the injury.
Due to this, doctors may advise you to take time off work until you’re fully recovered. Depending on your injuries, this could take weeks or months so it’s essential that you’ve got the right help and support in place.
If you’re concerned about making an injury claim in South Bucks after a workplace accident, we can help. Many claimants worry that their employer will punish or fire them for making a claim but they simply aren’t allowed.
