Angle grinders can cause disfiguring injuries, and if this happens the injured party often thinks: can I claim for an angle grinder accident? The answer is yes. Angle grinders can cause injuries that vary from minor to severe, and can even cause death. Lacerations, loss of fingers, eye injuries and even repetitive motion injuries are all possible from an angle grinder accident. For workers in the construction industry or trades, an accident such as this can cause weeks or even months of lost work, and lost income, beyond the more immediate medical issues associated with the injury.
The very first step, of course, is to seek medical attention for any injury. However, once the medical issue has stabilized, another good step is to contact Accident Advice Helpline. Via our 24-hour helpline, you can be connected to a personal injury specialist who can provide advice on possible next steps. If your employer provided an angle grinder that was not properly equipped with the required safety equipment, or you were required to use an angle grinder without proper training or experience, a claim may be made for compensation to pay for costs such as medical expenses and lost time.
The professionals at Accident Advice Helpline use a ‘no win, no fee*’ approach that lets clients concentrate on getting better rather than worrying about an additional financial drain. With the ‘no win, no fee*’ scheme, you owe no money up front for the initial consultation or for filing the claim. This can remove a huge financial burden, because we understand that you should not have to worry about anything other than regaining your health. A personal injury specialist will begin working immediately and secure the evidence needed to make a case for compensation for your injuries.
