Have there been serious accidents at work in Mansfield?
If you witness any sort of Mansfield accident, you may feel shaken or shocked afterwards. If the accident was particularly serious, or someone was killed as a result, you may even go on to suffer serious side-effects or develop post-traumatic stress disorder. If there were serious accidents at work in Mansfield, and you witnessed one of them, you may be recovering from shock.
If serious accidents at work in Mansfield happen, you may be even more susceptible to psychological or emotional issues afterwards. If you work in the same building in which the Mansfield accident occurred, or you know those who suffered serious injuries, it may take some time for you to recover from the incident.
When a workplace accident occurs, often more than one person is affected. Although you may not have suffered the most serious injuries in the incident, you could still make a claim for compensation. Furthermore, if you are suffering psychological issues as a result of the accident, you could ask for your compensation to be increased accordingly.
If your employer is shown to be at fault, they could be forced to pay compensation to everyone who was hurt in the accident. Although some people can feel reluctant to make a claim against an employer, there really is no need to feel this way.
In most cases, companies are insured against such instances, so they shouldn’t be affected financially and you can’t be punished in any way for making a genuine claim. Furthermore, making a claim or highlighting the issue of dangerous workplace practices could help to improve health and safety practices in the company, and it could help to ensure that future accidents are avoided.
If you’ve been hurt or suffered an injury in an accident at work, why not find out how much compensation you could be awarded for your injuries? As everyone’s compensation award is different, you may find it hard to calculate how much you could be awarded by comparing your situation to other people’s or to past claimants.
