There is never any justification that can be given for an accident at work depriving somebody of their earnings or even their livelihoods. Too many work related accidents occur due to the negligence of an employer, and despite the government introducing ever more stringent regulations for health and safety officers, the number of accidents remains consistent. This is why so many people seek work accident compensation feeling that they have been let down by an employer who should have been looking out for them. Over the years 2010-2011 there were around 603,000 reported work accidents, of which 200,000 resulted in 3 days absence and 150,000 were absent for more than a week. Employers are obligated to report injuries but of the 118,000 reported 26,000 of these were major injuries. This is a huge figure that, while the figures are dropping year on year, is still too high. The number of fatalities also stands at 171. This could ultimately mean that 171 families were affected by the death of what could have been their main or even sole bread-winner.
