A factory accident and industrial accidents are particularly common, but accidents can happen in the office too.
Some injuries may appear relatively minor when they first occur, like a back injury at work, but then they can develop into serious problems that prevent the worker from carrying out their duties.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, in 2007/2008 nearly 300,000 reportable injuries occurred after an accident in the work place, with 229 workers tragically losing their lives. And while these figures are not as high as in previous years, they are still far too high. Nobody deserves to be injured or lose their life at work.
Preventing accidents in the work place is therefore paramount, and compensation claims have proved an important factor in doing so.
It is no coincidence that since the number of compensation claims peaked in 1997, increased safety standards have led to a reduction in accident rates. That’s one of the reasons why accident in the work place claims matter – and why employees who fear they are being disloyal by making a claim can feel reassured.
