    Sutton Coldfield accident at work claim

    The royal town of Sutton Coldfield, often referred to simply as ‘Sutton’ lies around 6.5 miles to the north-east of Birmingham. With a population of 95,107 in 2011, this affluent town grew thanks to its steel and cotton industries, as well as stone from the local quarry. There’s plenty of green space in the area too with a large part and nature reserve as well as a popular golf course. If you’ve been injured in an accident at your place of work, making a Sutton Coldfield accident at work claim could be on the cards.

    Your employer could be held liable and ordered to pay you compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings – but you’ll need to make a personal injury claim within three years of your accident.

    Injured at work

    You might be thinking that workplace accidents only happen in the most dangerous industries – that’s simply not true. In fact you could be injured in any workplace, whether you work in an office, a shop or even a library. The most common types of accidents are slips, trips and falls, and you’d be surprised at the range of injuries that can be sustained even from these types of accidents. You could fall from a ladder in a stock room, trip over trailing cables in an office or slip on a wet floor whilst working in a bar.

    You might be lucky enough to escape with a sprained ankle or cuts and bruises, but you could suffer broken bones, a back injury or even a head injury, if you hit your head as you fall. If you work in a more dangerous environment such as in a factory or warehouse, you could be injured by heavy machinery or vehicles such as a forklift, and manual handling injuries are quite common too. In fact you could make a Sutton Coldfield accident at work claim for almost any type of injury, provided somebody else is at fault for your accident.
