Accident Advice Helpline receives thousands of queries throughout the year, including many from worried individuals asking, ‘Can I can claim for an accident as an electrical engineer?’ Accidents occur almost every day in the workplace, which is defined as any fixed abode or offsite location where professionals are required to work. Whether your electrical engineering accident took place in the office or offsite, you may be able to claim for financial compensation.
Electrical engineering accidents
By its very nature, electrical engineering involves a measure of risk and you are likely to be exposed to potentially hazardous situations on a regular basis. You may be naturally cautious, experienced and trained to deal with any situation, but your personal injury sustained at work may not have been your fault. The incident that caused your injury may have involved a third party, such as a client or even a member of the public. Check your legal rights today by calling Accident Advice Helpline immediately.

Accident at work compensation
Your employer has a legal responsibility to look after your welfare and there are laws and regulations in place to ensure your safety or to provide for legal redress in cases where safety has been breached. If this happens, you have a legal right to claim for financial compensation. Also, you can potentially claim for compensation if your electrical engineering accident was caused by unsafe working conditions that were not your fault or if someone interfered, intentionally or not, with your safety.
