The types of accidents that can happen in the workplace are unlimited and all of the injuries incurred can leave the victims requiring medical attention and having to take time off work. Some examples of injuries you could get while you are at work are:
- Fractures – the body is made up of 206 bones any of which can be broken from a broken finger bone to a very serious broken spine.
- Pulled muscles – our bones are surrounded by muscle which can be strained, pulled and even torn.
- Head injuries – again this can be a mild bump on the head or cut to a more serious case of concussion and sometimes even damage to the brain or skull itself.
- Eye injuries – these can cause swelling, irritation and in the worst cases temporary or even permanent blindness.
- Ear damage – leading to temporary or permanent deafness.
- Emotional trauma – this could be brought on by stress or actually from suffering a physical injury but can be very upsetting for victims and their families.
Anyone suffering from one of these or another type of injury from an accident at work could be eligible to make a Sandwell accident at work claim for compensation for their personal injuries.
