If you work at a vineyard and have been injured in an accident during the last three years then you could be asking yourself the question, “Can I claim for an accident at a vineyard?” To find out whether you are eligible to claim for compensation, call our advisors at Accident Advice Helpline: they are ready and waiting with invaluable advice and information about the process. You are under no obligation to commit to anything; however, one phone call could secure your financial future.
Safety issues are prevalent on a daily basis if you work at a vineyard. It is up to your manager to assess hazards regularly and ensure that any equipment you use is safe. If your employer has not provided a certain standard of protection or duty of care, then you should make a no win no fee claim to cover any losses you suffered. Many injuries can occur while working at a vineyard. These can include overexertion while lifting heavy objects, being struck by a falling object, falling on slippery surfaces and eye injuries caused by foreign matter abrasion. Tractor safety is also vital, so if you drove one without roll over protection structure (ROPS) or a seatbelt, then your employer is to blame if you were injured.
The Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations law (RIDDOR) states that employers must keep a log of all serious accidents in the workplace. If you have been incapacitated for three days or more, then your employer is required to keep a record of your injury. This evidence is vital in supporting your claim for compensation, as it will detail how the accident occurred and the various witnesses present. Our expert solicitors and lawyers will use this evidence to complete any necessary paperwork, reducing the hassle and stress of building your own case from scratch. You can text ‘claim365’ to 88010, dial 0333 500 0992 from a mobile or ring 0800 180 4123 from a land line for our 24-hour helpline to get started straight away.
You always need to remember that a compensation claim will help you on a number of levels, not least being your financial and physiological well-being following lost income and work hours. Though you may be worried about being embarrassed and feeling awkward about a case, it is important to remember that the majority of employers bear no ill feeling towards employees that make a claim.
