The accident and injury news feeds have been abuzz with developing stories this week, particularly concerning the unfortunate injuries of two workers.
Review Period: Dec 2013
It seems that there’s no dearth of injuries making the news over the last seven days, with two personal injury compensation cases this week making waves.
The Health and Safety Executive kicked into high gear this week, prosecuting two separate firms for their roles in the injuries of their employees.
It’s not just car drivers or their passengers that have to worry about sustaining injuries in road traffic accidents, as this week’s news stories show.
This past week, it seems that there’s nothing but news of slips, trips, and falls plaguing Brits both at home and abroad when it comes to sustaining injuries.
The big story this week is how one local authority has been paying out more than £1.2 million in personal injury compensation to its staff over the past five years.
The past week has definitely been one for the record books, considering how one poor woman ended up having her holiday ruined – and her health seriously threatened – by a single chocolate muffin.
While last few weeks have been all about the Health and Safety Executive taking issue with unsafe working conditions causing personal injury at work, the past seven days has been packed with news about slips and trips.
It’s always bad for workers and employers alike whenever there’s a work accident claim made, but as bad as employees have to suffer, businesses suffer just as bad once the Health and Safety Executive gets involved – it usually means weighty fines on top of any personal injury compensation payments.
Not that we’re trying to make you fret, but if you’ve either been riding a motorbike or going to the local surgery lately, you should know that it’s been a bad week indeed for people suffering from medical negligence or having to make motorcycle accident claims.
