Care Work Accident Claims

Care Work Accident Claims

Care workers are employed in a variety of settings, including residential care homes, nursing homes, and hospitals. They play an important role in providing care and support for those who are unable to care for themselves.

Unfortunately, care workers are also at risk of suffering accidents at work. These accidents can occur due to slip and fall hazards, lifting patients, or exposure to dangerous chemicals.

If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be entitled to compensation. Care worker accident claims can help you recover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, and other damages.

An experienced personal injury solicitor can help you understand your rights and options under the law.


Care Work Injury Statistics

According to human health and social work ( HSE ) there were 82,000 non-fatal injuries to workers each year averaged across the three-year
period 2018/19-2020/21.

Some of the most common types of accidents that care workers are injured in are:

Slips, trips and falls

One of the most common types of accidents that care workers are injured in are slips, trips and falls. These accidents can happen for a number of reasons, such as wet floors, loose carpeting or uneven paving.

If you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall accident at work, you will need to show that your employer was negligent in their duty to provide a safe working environment.

For example, if you slipped on a wet floor that had not been signposted, your employer would be liable for your injuries.

Similarly, if you tripped over loose carpeting that had not been fixed, your employer would also be liable.

It is important to note that if you were injured in a slip, trip or fall accident while not at work (for example, while on your way to a client’s home), you would not be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

Accidents involving lifting and moving patients

Another common type of accident that care workers are injured in is lifting and moving patients.

These accidents can happen when lifting equipment is not used correctly or when patients are not moved correctly. For example, if you try to lift a patient without using enough staff or without using proper lifting techniques, you could be seriously injured.

If you have been injured in an accident involving lifting or moving patients, you will need to show that your employer did not provide adequate training or supervision.

Accidents involving violence from patients or their families

Unfortunately, care workers are also at risk of being injured in accidents involving violence from patients or their families.

These accidents can happen when care workers are verbally abused, threatened or attacked by patients or their families.

If you have been the victim of violence at work, you will need to show that your employer did not take reasonable steps to protect you from harm.


Compensation

Care workers play an essential role in our society but unfortunately, they are also at risk of being injured in accidents at work.

If you have been injured in an accident at work, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

This will depend on the circumstances of your accident and whether or not your employer was negligent in their duty to provide a safe working environment.

If you think you may have a case for compensation, please Stonehewer Moss Solicitors today for more information.


How Much Compensation Could I Be Entitled To?

The amount of compensation you could be entitled to depends on various factors, such as the severity of your injuries, how long it will take for you to recover from your injuries, and whether or not you have suffered any long-term effects as a result of your accident (e.g. long-term disability).

To get an idea of how much compensation you could be entitled to, head over to our personal injury calculator which will give you an estimation based on the information you provide.
