On the dramatic Cumbrian coastline, Whitehaven is well known for its thriving Maritime Festival, which first took place in 1999 and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors. The town, like much of Northwest England, was heavily reliant on coal mining in the industrial era, and hundreds of people were victims of serious work injuries and fatal accidents resulting from mining and pit disasters over a period of more than three centuries.
Have you suffered an accident that was someone else’s fault?
While there is no mining activity in Whitehaven today, many employees can still become victims of work accidents that were not their fault. Often, these workplace injuries can be due to faulty equipment, inadequate training, or a general failure to follow and implement workplace health and safety procedures.
If you have been the victim of any accident in Whitehaven that was not your fault, you may be able to make a claim for financial compensation. To qualify, your accident must have occurred within the last three years, although exceptions do apply.
