Personal Injury - Accidents at Work

bannerjones solicitors Accidents at Work The facts and figures When you take into account official statistics from the HSE, it becomes crystal clear that accidents at work are a very real threat, regardless of the type of industry. 150,000 non-fatal injuries are reported each year in the UK, with an additional 200 cases resulting in fatality. On top of this, an estimated 2 million people suffer from ill health brought on or aggravated by accidents and injury in the workplace. Taking its toll Some injuries are minor and can be dealt with by logging details into an accident book and applying basic first aid, such as a plaster or bandage. However, many accidents have serious ramifications, including time off work, financial and emotional strain, and in some cases permanent disability. People's lives can be turned upside-down on a long-tem basis, resulting directly from accidents that could have been avoided if the workplace had appropriate safeguards in place. We're with you every step of the way Mishaps take place all of the time, but in the event that an accident at work is affecting your life, Banner Jones can help. If required, we can even arrange home visits during the consultation process, helping everything to run as smoothly as possible. How compensation can help Claiming compensation is often a logical and justified course of action, as financial recompense can help to make ends meet in the aftermath of an accident or injury at work.
