Whatever you do for a living, you could be at risk of personal injury in the workplace. While it’s perhaps more obvious that industrial and construction workers are at risk of serious physical injury, office workers can easily suffer injuries in accidents such as slips, trips and falls.
What causes workplace injuries?
Injuries and illnesses at work can be caused by many factors, some of which include:
- Lack of proper training
- Lack of protective clothing and gear
- Faulty equipment
- Exposure to harmful chemicals
If you have had an accident at work, or developed an illness as a result of your working conditions, you could contact Accident Advice Helpline to start your workplace accident claims in Wychavon.
How much compensation will you get?
An injury or illness sustained at the workplace can sometimes mean days off work, and this can result in lost wages and out of pocket expenses. More severe injuries can have serious consequences, like being off for a long period or, indeed, being unable to ever return to work.
The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the extent and severity of the injury you sustained, the impact the injury has had on your life, and how many expenses you have incurred. (If awarded, compensation will cover lost wages and expenses.)
You can get an estimate of what you could be awarded by going to our website and taking the 30 second test. Answer a few questions and you can find out if you qualify to claim. If you are eligible, you can get your estimate with the free compensation calculator.
