If you work outside of your home, you probably are aware of the fact that accidents at work do happen and they might happen more often than you would wish them to occur. Sometimes, there isn’t that much a person can do to avoid accidents since in most cases, you might not be the one to blame. The truth is that the moment you leave your house to get to your workplace, you put yourself at risk that something bad can happen to you. You simply need to accept this truth, but it doesn’t have to mean that you have to be helpless and never take any action.
Even if a person is very careful, accidents can still happen to him. My sister is a very careful person, but several years ago, while working for a company the name of which I no longer remember, she slipped on the stairs while leaving the premises of the company and hurt her leg. She didn’t break her leg, but rather badly twisted it. The whole situation prevented her from going back to work for a few weeks. Luckily for her, she was compensated for her absence at work, but things could have been a lot worse than that.
