Most common accident at work in Liverpool claims
Some of the most common types of workplace accidents in Liverpool include:
- Slips, trips and falls: It’s very well-known that any trip hazards, spills or objects are clearly marked for employees to see them. If for some reason this hasn’t happened, and an accident takes place, the employer could be liable for compensation.
- Repetitive strain injury: This can affect both manual workers and those who sit at a desk. It is important that employers provide the right advice and training to ensure that employees can carry out their work without the risk of injury. If an employer is negligent in this way and fails to take appropriate steps to ensure employees’ safety, then they may be forced to pay compensation.
- Hearing loss: If you work in a loud environment, it is up to your employer to provide the right protective wear and ensure that noise levels are at a legal level. Hearing loss can affect you for the rest of your life and even stop you from working. If you were to lose your hearing as a result of your work, you may be entitled to compensation.
- Back, neck and shoulder injuries: Whether from carrying heavy equipment, a fall from height or even falling equipment, back, neck and shoulder injuries can be extremely debilitating, leaving you with a lengthy recovery period. Should you be forced off work for some time with statutory or no sick pay, you may struggle to pay your bills and other expenses caused by your injuries.
