Can You Claim For An Accident At Work?

According to the Labour Force Survey, 609,000 people were injured at work in 2016/2017. It is unfortunate, but regardless of how and where you are employed, accidents at work do happen and consequences can sometimes be devastating.

 

As such, it doesn’t matter where you may work, it is the law that your employer provides a safe working environment for you to work in, failure to do this could put them in a position of being held responsible for any injuries suffered in the workplace. Therefore, if you have been injured at work due to your employers’ negligence, then you will be eligible to make an accident at work compensation claim.

Factories, Production & Industrial Workplace Accident Claims

Due to the nature of the environment and the equipment used, factory and production environments have proven to be the most common locations for injuries at work among our clients in recent years; with 40% of our accident at work claims occurring in these environments. We have represented clients in claims arising from manual handling, operating machinery (e.g. forklift truck accidents), falls from height, crushing injuries, workers being struck by an object and contact with machinery.

 

Accidents arising from incorrectly fitted or missing guards on machinery are among the most common claims involving factory and production workers and can have traumatic consequences for the employee. We also see claims arising from failure to provide adequate personal protective equipment such as gloves, masks and footwear. These are small costs to the employer that can prevent a devastating accident.

 

In some cases, we find that safety concerns have been raised prior to an accident occurring and the employer has failed to take appropriate action. If you work in a factory, production or manufacturing environment and have been injured, our experienced specialist team may be able to help you with a work accident claim. Read More on industrial accident compensation and industrial disease claims here.

You are required to be compassionate and understanding, but you also have a very physical role to fulfill. Our team have represented health and social care providers in accidents arising from a number of scenarios including slips, trips and falls, violence from those receiving care, manual handling, and accidents involving food and drink preparation.

 

If you are a care worker and got injured through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to compensation. We understand you may be apprehensive about bringing an injury claim and our team are on hand to discuss your accident circumstances and help you work out the best way forward.

 

 

Logistics Workers Injury Claims

Due to the nature of the working environment, those working in logistics are also among the most frequent groups of workers we represent in accident at work claims. Claims involving couriers/delivery drivers, van and lorry / HGV drivers are common due to their spending of long periods of time on the road and the necessity to manage potentially heavy or hazardous loads.

 

Those working in logistics are at risk of suffering a number of accidents arising from faulty equipment, inadequate training, unsafe load, manual handling, road traffic accidents, and industrial disease. If we have not made reference to the accident or injury that you have endured, this does not mean you do not have a claim.

Farming & Agriculture Injury Claims

The Health and Safety Executive quotes agriculture as having the highest rate of fatal injury of all the main industry sectors with 30 deaths as a result of farming and other agriculture-related activities during 2016/2017. A further 13,000 non-fatal injuries to workers are quoted as occurring each year in the agriculture, forestry and fishing sector in Great Britain.

 

With dangerous machinery and unpredictable working conditions, farming accidents at work are not uncommon. Slips trips and falls, injuries caused by animals, falls from height, and contact with machinery or objects are among the most common causes of injury.

 

Your employer is legally responsible for your safety and welfare at work as with any other industry workplace.
