Accident At Work Compensation
Statistics indicate that more than 500,000 workers experienced an accident at work between 2010 and 2011. Nearly half these injuries led to more than three days taken off work and around 15,000 entailed absences of more than seven days. Slips, trips and falls made up more than half of all reported major injuries and almost a third of over three day off work injuries. Around two million days at work were lost because of slips and trips and handling injuries.
The number of injuries and the number of fatalities in workplaces have gradually fallen in Britain over the years but they are still common enough to cause a major disruption to many people’s lives. Chronic pain and loss of earnings are only two aspects of the fall out from an injury sustained in a work place.If you have been injured in your work place and it took place within the last three years, then you are entitled to put in for an Accident at Work Compensation payment. All accidents are due to negligence in some way or another, so compensation is a way of ensuring that the injured party has some relief from the burden and suffering from an uncalled for injury.
