Make Work Injury Claims
It is a startling fact that every year millions of people suffer injuries in the workplace. These are people who may be entitled to make work injuries claims for compensation.
If you have been hurt in an accident at work which took place within the last three years, or you have developed an illness as a direct result of the job you do, then you may be one of those who could make work injury claims and you could receive compensation as a result.
Why are some people put off when they could make work injury claims?
Due to the delicate nature of the relationship between a worker and an employer, people can feel awkward or embarrassed about the claims process and many do not pursue it following an accident in the workplace. This is exactly where Accident Advice Helpline can help: If you have been hurt at work you have an entitlement to claim compensation from your employer’s insurance company and we can look after the whole process for you.
Which industries do work injury claims come from?
What industries do people who make work injury claims work in?
Responsible for a greater number of fatal injuries over the last five years than any other sector, the agriculture, hunting, forestry and fishing industry is reportedly the most dangerous industry in which to work.
In recent years major injuries were reported to have occurred within the construction industry, with new cancer cases arising each year which are the result of previous exposure to risk within this sector.
3. Health and Social Care
Currently an estimated five million working days are lost each year due to illness or injury suffered by workers in health and social care and stress-related illnesses are higher in this sector than in any other.
This sector is responsible for approximately 15% of all reported major injuries.
5. Waste and Recycling
Overall numbers of injuries and accidents reported by workers in this industry have decreased steadily over the last few years, however, waste and recycling still remains a high-risk industry. Workers in this sector are most likely to have to make industrial accident claims for slips and trips or as a result of a handling injury.
