In order to try and limit the number of accidents and injuries in the workplace, the government has steadily been introducing a number of health and safety rules and guidelines over recent years. Whilst many companies and businesses are concerned with increasing their profit margins and returns, they must attempt to do this within the confines of the law and without putting their staff at risk of injury.
Whilst the majority of businesses within the UK do operate within the relevant health and safety guidelines, some do not. If you suffer a personal injury at work in Birmingham and your employer has failed to adhere to the relevant legislation or guidelines, it’s highly likely that you’ll be able to make a compensation claim.
However, if you suffer a personal injury at work in Birmingham and your employer has followed the law, they could still be liable and you could still obtain compensation for them. Providing the personal injury at work in Birmingham you sustained wasn’t your fault, you may want to contact Accident Advice Helpline to find out how we can help you to obtain compensation.
Effects of a personal injury at work in Birmingham
Often, claimants find that their personal injury at work can directly impact their ability to work as it’s often linked to their job role. For example, if you work in an office and you suffer repetitive strain injury, it may make it difficult to continue with your current work. Similarly, if you do a manual job and you suffer a back injury, you may find that you’re unable to continue in your current role.
If this has a financial impact on you and you lose money, you could also claim this lost income back when you make a claim for your personal injury at work in Birmingham. Many claimants are surprised at how much this element can increase their compensation award so it’s important to remember to claim for this, as well as the injuries you sustained.
