Accidents at Work Claims
According to RIDDOR (Risk of Injuries Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) , there were over 650,000 workplace injuries in Great Britain in the reporting year 2018-19 alone. This figure incorporates both company-reported and self-reported injuries.
74% of the company-reported injuries left the affected worker incapacitated for a week or more. Accidents at work can cause significant pain and distress for those affected and the injuries sustained can be life-changing. Sadly, a small number of workplace accident will result in facilities – 60 workers lost their lives due to work-related activities in 2020/21 according to RIDDOR.

How do Accidents at Work Happen?
It’s an unfortunate fact of life that accidents happen and this is no less the case than at work. In fact, work-related accidents account for many of the accidents that people suffer every year with warehouse accidents being the most common. Accidents at work are perhaps even more unfortunate than accidents elsewhere in life as employees should be kept safe whilst doing their jobs.
Employers owe their employees a duty of care to ensure that all precautions are taken to guarantee they don’t come to any harm. This includes such things as a safe working environment, adequate training and the correct safety equipment. If they don’t do this, they could be held liable if an accident did occur and may be forced to pay compensation to the injured party. For more information, please contact our team today.
