Accidents do not care if you are rich or poor, famous or unknown, where you live or what you do, they happen to all types of people all the time, no matter what age, sex or creed they are. No one is immune from being injured in an accident that was not their own fault and many of them happen at work. If you are injured in an accident at work that was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation by making a Lewes accident at work claim.
Making a Lewes accident at work claim for a slip, trip or fall accident
The most common of all accidents, whether at work or somewhere else, are slips, trips and falls. Many of them result in no more than a bruise or two and maybe a bit of hurt pride, but some of them cause very serious injuries and some result in death. Just imagine if:
- You were working on a construction site, five floors up on some scaffolding. There was a loose bolt at the bottom which eventually came out and the whole thing started to collapse. You could fall to the ground and would sustain some awful injuries, if you survived.
- You were working on a shop floor filling shelves. As you walk through with your arms full, your trip over an obstruction another employee has left in a walk way. As you trip over, the stock you are carrying flies everywhere, knocking stock of the shelves which all lands on top of you. As well as hurting yourself as you land, you could also sustain injuries from whatever hits you as it falls.
- You work in an office, a place most people consider very safe to work in, but this particular day the cleaners are running late and still mopping floors at work time. They do not put signs up warning of wet floors and you slip and land on the corner of a desk. This would be very painful no matter what part of your body hits the desk, but could be very serious if it happens to be your head.
This is just three examples of many hundreds of slip, trip and fall accidents that happen at work, and cause innocent victims to make a Lewes accident at work claim.
