You may have visited Lavenham or perhaps you have seen it unwittingly as it has been used by a variety of filmmakers over the years, including Pier Paulo Pasolini and Stanley Kubrick. It is primarily chosen because it has a wealth of mediaeval and Tudor half-timbered buildings. There was even a 1990s episode of the series ‘Lovejoy,’ called “Last Tango in Lavenham.”

You may be a resident of Lavenham and have sustained injuries in an accident which you can prove was no fault of yours and be actively seeking injury lawyers Lavenham.

Accidents at work

Employers have a responsibility to protect the health and safety of their workers. They are expected to provide sufficient training for employees to carry out their duties so that they do not suffer injuries. For example, if you were asked to manually lift a heavy item, you should have been trained in how to do so with the minimum risk of injury.

Employers should carry out a thorough risk assessment before any new work begins, and if this is not done, and you have an accident, then you may, with the help of your injury lawyers Lavenham, or ones based anywhere else in the country, be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. All employers must have personal liability insurance cover which provides for personal injury compensation claims, the money does not come out of their personal bank account.

The latest Health and Safety Executive figures relating to accidents in the workplace (2012/2013) show some quite disturbing figures, especially as it is believed that accidents at work are under-reported. Here are the key figures:

  • 148 workers killed at work
  • 78 000 other injuries to employees were reported under RIDDOR
  • 175 000 over-7-day absence injuries occurred (LFS)
  • 1.1 million working people were suffering from a work-related illness (2011/12)
  • 27 million working days were lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury (2011/12)
  • Workplace injuries and ill health (excluding cancer) cost society an estimated £13.8 billion in 2010/11”

(RIDDOR  – the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995, and LFS – Labour Force Survey)
