Anyone who works with chemicals knows just how dangerous these substances can be, and making a chemical burn at work claim is something that should be done if you have suffered an injury that could have been prevented. Turning to Accident Advice Helpline will bring you in touch with a team of expert lawyers who are experienced in personal injury claims, and our professionals will guide you through the process of making a claim.
How can Accident Advice Helpline help?
As a personal injury law firm, Accident Advice Helpline offers clients more than a decade of experience in dealing with legal action for compensation. From the moment that you call us, we deal with the claim for you so there is no need for you to deal directly with the third party. We will gather the information that we need from you and keep you informed as the claim progresses.
If you are injured at work, you might need quite a bit of time off to recover, and chemical burns can be life changing. It could be that you are not able to return to the same job. This could alter your financial situation and making a claim for compensation could help you a great deal. It will cover any loss of earnings incurred as a result of the accident, as well as compensating you for any additional expenses and the actual accident itself.
What should you do?
If you have suffered a chemical burn at work, then following medical treatment the first thing you should do is to contact Accident Advice Helpline. The sooner you do so, the sooner we can start to work on your claim. Getting in touch with us is easy. We have a 24-hour free helpline, so you can talk to someone no matter what time of the day or night. It may be that you are not sure if you have the right to make a claim or not, in which case you should still call us. We will go through all the details with you and let you know if you have grounds to proceed.
It is very important to make a claim if you can, as bringing health and safety issues in the workplace to the attention of those who can improve them is essential. Companies are responsible for the health and safety of all members of staff while they are on the premises and, if you are handling chemicals, you should have received the relevant health and safety training. An accident could have been caused, however, by another worker who did not receive the relevant training. All aspects of the accident will be examined during the chemical burn at work claim process.
What about the costs?
The good news is that the process of making a claim is simple and easy and we work on a ‘no win, no fee’* basis. Call us free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
