How even simple tasks can result in workplace accidents

Whether your hen party or stag night is a lively occasion or a quiet one such as the royal bride, the Duchess of Cambridge chose, spare a thought for those behind the scenes.

“What started out as a simple task to add to the fun of a hen night became a nightmare for one of my clients and her work colleague” says Vicky Slater, Personal Injury Specialist at Croftons.

“Ms M and her colleague were employed by a company specialising in printing knickers. Filling an order for printed knickers for a hen party, Ms M suffered head injuries when accidentally injured by a colleague” continues Vicky.

“Not realising Ms M was standing next to him, a colleague brought the top of the printing press down. It struck Ms M on the head causing bruising and swelling on her head, severe pain, concussion and blurred vision” explains Vicky.

“The knickers were printed and hopefully the hen night was a success! However, it just shows that accidents can happen even in simple, routine tasks”
