Accidents at Work

Ashfords have many years of experience successfully advising employees who have suffered accidents at work.

Often clients may not be sure if they have a claim or if they are an employee or self-employed. We can provide practical advice and assistance and are happy to speak to you initially for no charge, so that you can make a more informed decision about what to do after an accident at work.

Accidents at work come in many forms including:

  • Lifting and manual handling injuries
  • Slips and trips
  • Falls from height
  • Crushing injuries
  • Burns

The risk of an accident at work remains real.

The latest figures from the Health and Safety Executive show that 147 workers were killed in 2018/2019, there were also an estimated 555,000 workers who suffered a non-fatal injury at work.

These statistics are striking but in fact there has been a reduction in the number of fatal and non-fatal injuries sustained at work - what has not changed is the trends between sectors. Some sectors carry a much higher risk of injury, such as:

  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
