The historic city of Bath is situated in the ceremonial county of Somerset in South West England. The city was first established as a spa by the Romans sometime in the AD 60s.
The City of Bath was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in 1987 and is a tourist hotspot. Due to this the city has a variety of theatres, museums, and other cultural and sporting venues, which have helped to make it a major centre for tourism, with over one million staying visitors and 3.8 million day visitors to the city each year. This has led to the development of a large service sector, and growing information and communication technologies and creative industries, providing employment for the population of Bath and the surrounding area.
Claiming compensation for workplace injuries in Bath
Regardless of the type of job or industry that you work in, accidents and injuries will happen, especially in popular and busy cities like Bath. If you have experienced workplace injuries in Bath in the past three years through no fault of your own, you could be in line for personal injury compensation, if you employ the right injury claim solicitor.
A lot of people decide against pursuing what could be a legitimate claim for workplace injuries in Bath, because of either misplaced feelings of loyalty, or fear of their employer bearing a grudge. But because employers must by law have liability insurance cover in place for such occasions, it is highly unlikely they will take such a stance.
The types of injuries that are common in the workplace include things such as:
- Bone fractures
- Repetitive strain injury
- Musculature strains (typically in manual handing jobs)
- Spinal injuries
- Slips, trips and falls
All of these injuries and others like them can impact upon your ability to carry on working and may lead to a loss of earnings. Apart from this, other expenses such as medical treatment costs, child care costs, and occasionally, home modification costs, making a home wheelchair friendly if the injuries sustained confine the victim to a wheelchair for life, all add up, putting a strain on your finances and potentially leading you into debt.
