Work Accident Statistics
No matter where you were there are dangers that can leave you with serious personal injuries, however it comes as no surprise that the most dangerous sectors to work in include agriculture, construction and manufacturing where machinery and heavy items are regularly used.
This does not mean to say that work accidents don't occur in other sectors. Over the years we have helped clients who work in offices, restaurants and garages claim work accident compensation.
Specialists from the Health and Safety Executive revealed that as many as 603 000 workers had a work accident between 2010/11, 200,000 of which led to over 3 days of absence from work, and 150,000 over 7 days.
The main cause of the work accident was either because of a collision with a vehicle, being hit by a falling object, or falling from a height - all of which can earn compensation if the accident was not your fault.
A total of 171 workers were also fatally injured between 2010 and 2011.
