    Read about workplace accident scenarios


    No matter where you work, there is the risk of accidents happening. So whilst it’s true that working on a building site is considerably more dangerous than being employed in an office, you could suffer injuries in an accident at any place of work, if something goes wrong. There are many kinds of different workplace accident scenarios which could lead to making a claim for personal injury compensation, and chances are you have already heard about some from advertising on TV or news articles online.

    Accident Advice Helpline’s website is packed with news about workplace accident scenarios and we can offer advice that could help you decide whether to proceed with a personal injury claim after your accident at work.

    What are some common workplace accident scenarios?

    There are some types of workplace accidents that are more common than others, so we have included a few example workplace accident scenarios before for some of the most common claims we deal with:

    • Slipping on a wet floor in an office or whilst working in a shop
    • Tripping over trailing cables in an office
    • Falling off a ladder or scaffolding on a building site
    • Being injured by faulty tools or machinery on a building site or in a factory
    • Being injured by heavy machinery whilst working in a factory
    • Being run over by a forklift whilst working in a warehouse

    These are just a few examples of the types of accidents which could happen at work, and as you can see they really do cover a variety of different workplaces and situations. This means you could be injured whilst working in a ‘dangerous’ job in a factory or on a construction site, but you could also just as easily be injured in a shop or an office.

    Claiming compensation after a workplace accident

    The important thing to remember after your accident is at work is that it’s likely your employer could be to blame. Maybe you were injured by faulty tools or machinery that your employer should have repaired or perhaps you have tripped over trailing cables that should have been tidied away. Whatever has happened, if your employer has been negligent and they could have done more to prevent your accident from happening, you could find yourself eligible to claim personal injury compensation.
