As you may already know, injuries in the workplace can take a variety of forms. Whilst some injuries will correlate to the working environment, others may simply happen in the workplace but be unrelated to your work.
If, for example, you suffer a injury at work and it’s caused by using heavy machinery, this could be related to the type of work you do. However, if you trip over poorly maintained carpeting at your workplace, you may still have suffered a personal injury at work in Sheffield and you could still make a compensation claim, even though the incident didn’t correspond directly to your job role.
