Different jobs carry different risks. Working on a busy construction site is going to be a bit more dangerous than working in an office, for example. Nevertheless, you could still suffer serious injury from an accident in an office environment.
If you have been injured in an accident at work, there are a couple of things that need to be established. First of all, are you at fault for the accident? Was negligence involved? Were health and safety measures implemented? The answer to these questions could make a difference between you making a successful claim for compensation and not.
By law, you are allowed to make a claim for personal injury compensation if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault. As an employer, your management has a duty of care towards you. If you are working in conditions that are not safe, or working with faulty machinery, your superiors need to rectify the problem as soon as possible. If you are injured as a direct result of your employer’s negligence or bad practices, then you are definitely in a position to claim compensation.
