With over half a million people living in and around Manchester, and more commuting into the area for work, it’s unsurprising that some people suffer injuries whilst at work. Although most injuries which occur in the workplace are relatively minor, if you suffer a personal injury at work in Manchester, you may want to make a claim for compensation.
The risk of personal injury at work in Manchester
Although many people will, unfortunately, suffer a personal injury at work in Manchester, it’s likely that the injuries which occur will vary dramatically. Generally, some job roles put people at risk of certain injuries so you may find that the harm you suffer corresponds to the type of work you do.
If, for example, you suffer a personal injury and your job involves driving, you may find that you’re more likely to suffer an injury because of a road traffic accident, when compared with other types of workers.
Similarly, if you work in a gym or as a personal trainer, you may find that when you experience a personal injury at work, it is a sporting related injury. Even if your injury does correspond to the type of work you do, this doesn’t mean you merely have to accept it as part of the job.
Claiming for a work injury
If you’re hurt at work and you suffer a personal injury at work in Manchester, you could make a compensation claim against your employers, or those responsible for the harm that you suffered, providing you weren’t responsible for the injury itself.
In many instances, when an injury occurs in the workplace, the company owners, shareholders or managers will be legally responsible and they will be liable to pay you compensation so it can be well worth making a claim when a personal injury at work in Manchester does occur.
