Britain is one of the world’s safest countries for workers. However, this has not always been the case and even in recent years, workplace death numbers have not declined.
Unfortunately, in 2021 there were 123 deaths in the workplace, with construction workers particularly at risk. The most common work accidents are falls from height, being struck by moving objects or being crushed or trapped.
At Novum Law, our team of specialist personal injury solicitors help and support bereaved families after losing loved ones because of accidents at work.
We know how difficult it is to come to terms with the fact that someone you care about has died as the result of an accident that was not their fault, and which in some cases was caused by the negligence of their employer.
Sudden accidents are not the only cause of work-related deaths. Exposure to dangerous substances such as asbestos in the workplace can have fatal consequences too. Even though diseases such as pleural thickening and cancers such as mesothelioma can take decades to develop, they are no less devastating to those affected.
“Every fatality at work is one too many, ruining lives and leaving behind devastated families – many due to entirely preventable accidents as a result of unsafe working conditions.
“We have supported many families through these difficult and heart-breaking times. Our work accident legal experts have years of experience ensuring the maximum compensation is secured for bereaved husbands, wives, partners, and children.
“If your loved one has died in an avoidable accident at work, you deserve justice. Seeking compensation might be the last thing on your mind, but it can go towards providing you with the support you need to try and move forward. Compensation can provide financial certainty, ensuring that your family does not suffer as a result of lost earnings, but it can also go towards addressing the pain and hardship you have been forced to endure as a result of your loved one’s avoidable death.”
If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious workplace accident , it’s important to speak to a specialist personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. There is a 3-year legal time limit for starting a fatal work accident compensation claim.
