When we go to work each day we are putting a lot of trust in our employers to keep us safe while we are on their premises. Due to this, we don’t always think about the causes of accidents in Southampton. Our employers do have a duty of care to provide us with the appropriate health and safety to ensure we do not suffer from an injury at work.
However all employers also have an insurance in place for incidents when an accident does happen and an employee is injured while they are at work, because at the end of the day employers know that sometimes accidents were going to happen no matter what we do to prevent them. No one can predict when and where an accident will happen but if it has happened to you perhaps you should be making a Southampton accident at work compensation claim for your injuries and loses.
There are so many different injuries that people could get in accidents at work. Many people find that they sustain a hip injury in an accident at work. The types of injuries you could do to your hip are endless, some example are:
- Sprains – this is when the ligaments are stretched or torn. You will feel pain, swelling, bruising and be unable to move the hip joint.
- Dislocation – this is caused when a force pushes your bones out of position. You will feel pain, swelling and the hip joint will be out of place and very immobile.
