    Chemist accident claim liability

    Chemists work for government agencies, research institutes, and the National Health Service (NHS). The job is demanding, and requires tasks such as discovering new medicines. As with any hands-on job, hazards are never too far away, especially if health and safety is not prioritised. Employment laws make it mandatory that employers carry out appropriate risk assessments for everything you do. They must provide safety equipment such as goggles and gloves, and ensure your working environment is of the highest standards.

    You can make a chemist accident claim if you were working with hydrogenation or alkylation chemistry and were injured. This could have been due to a faulty structure you were standing near, or if you were exposed to chemicals without wearing the correct protective equipment.

    Chemists also use start of the art-equipment to evaluate and test samples. The equipment you use should always be safe and well-maintained. It is your employer’s responsibility to carry out these preventive tasks. If a third party was to blame for your injury, then there is hope. It is possible to make a chemist accident claim without going to court.

    Once you have confirmed that your employer or another third party is to blame, our expert solicitors can begin proving their liability. This not always straightforward, and we will have to call on financial and medical documents to maximise what is owed to you. You do not have to worry about the process, though. Instead, please focus on your rehabilitation as we try to secure you a sum of money that will make your life a whole lot better.
