Securing workplace compensation in Clackmannanshire
On the day you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you will have most likely set off from home as normal. It is highly unlikely that you considered you would be injured in an accident that day. For no other reason than most accident victims are injured in accidents they had no idea were going to happen. If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to workplace compensation in Clackmannanshire.
It seems unfair that in the place you spend most of your time, other than at home, you are injured. Statistically it is more likely that you will be hurt in an accident at work simply because of the amount of time you spend there. That said it does not come as any less of a shock when it happens.
Injured at work because of a work colleague’s neglect
While in the workplace there is an element of trust that has to be afforded to all of your work colleagues. This is the same regardless of what you do for a living. From the point of view of being involved in an accident, you are as likely to have an accident in an office as you are on a building site.
Many of the accidents that we see, as part of our remit in securing workplace compensation in Clackmannanshire, are caused because of the neglect of those around the accident victim. Health and safety procedures are often ignored or corners cut in the hope of completing a job more quickly than expected.
It may prove advantageous in the eyes of your clients to fulfill a contact ahead of schedule, but there is little to be gained if a member of your workforce has been injured through no fault of their own. Taking everything into account, any profit made from your clients could be lost as the result of having to pay out accident at work compensation.
