    Most common causes of a workplace compensation claim in Cornwall

    Many accidents at work are caused by an employer’s failure in their duty of care to provide a safe working environment for its employees. Some of the most common workplace accidents include:

    • Cuts and lacerations. Whether caused by sharp, misplaced objects or other instruments, these types of injuries can be serious and leave workers unable to return to work for a period.
    • Slips, trips and falls. Spills, uneven floors, unsafe scaffolding and more are just some of the reasons why these types of accidents occur and can easily be avoided.
    • Burns and shocks. Chemicals, dodgy electrics and more can cause fires or electric shocks, which can have some devastating effects for those involved, leading to long periods of absence.
    • Industrial diseases. Whilst instances of asbestos poisoning and similar types of disease are getting rarer, they can have serious consequences for those who are affected.
