The parish and village of Worfield, in Shropshire in the Midlands, is within commuting distance of a number of urban centres, including Wolverhampton and Telford, so is a good place to be based for work. The reality is, though, if you live in the area, you are no less likely to be affected by a workplace in accident in Worfield than you are anywhere else in Britain.
It’s always important to remember that those who employ other people are under a legal obligation to provide a workplace that’s as safe as reasonably possible. Equally, any equipment used at work for work needs to be safe, too, and appropriate protective clothing must be provided. If you drive for work, the vehicle provided has to be roadworthy and safe.
If you are hurt or become ill following a workplace accident, you are perfectly within your rights to claim personal injury compensation to pay for additional costs incurred, which could include anything from hospital parking fees to a holiday you’ve had to cancel.
What’s more, all employers are obliged by law to have in place insurance which will cover these kinds of claims, called employers’ liability insurance. Not only that, but if you were to lose a job as a result of you claim, your employer would be acting illegally. So if you feel any qualms about pursuing a claim against your employer, you really shouldn’t.
The figures can make for stark reading, with a thousand reports of serious workplace injuries every month, not to mention many less severe incidents. These mishaps are not limited to the more obviously hazardous workplaces like building sites – they can happen anywhere, even in the most innocuous-seeming office environment.
