Work Accident Claims

    Work Accident Claims

    An injury at work can have a significant impact on your life, affecting not only your physical and mental wellbeing but also your ability to earn a living. Employers have a legal duty to provide a safe and healthy working environment for their employees. But despite the best efforts of employers to protect their workers, accidents can still happen, and when they do, the decision to pursue a claim against an employer can be a difficult one.

    If you’ve been injured in a work accident due to your employer’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

    Accident At Work Compensation Examples & Common Types of Work Accidents

    • Slip, trip, and fall accidents: Wet or uneven surfaces, poorly lit areas, and obstacles in walkways can lead to these accidents.
    • Manual handling injuries: Lifting, carrying, pushing, or pulling heavy objects without proper training or equipment can cause strains, sprains, and other injuries.
    • Machinery accidents: Inadequate safety measures, lack of training, or faulty machinery can lead to serious injuries.
    • Falls from height: Inadequate safety equipment or training can result in falls from ladders, scaffolding, or other elevated surfaces.
    • Exposure to harmful substances: Contact with hazardous materials, such as chemicals or asbestos, can cause severe health issues, such as breathing issues or burns or scalds.
    • Falls from ladders or scaffolds.
    • Crushing injuries.
