If you work for the National Health Service (NHS), a research institute, or a public health laboratory, and have recently sustained injuries at work, you can call Accident Advice Helpline for chemist injury advice. You could pursue your own personal injury claim if you think your chemist injury was caused by a fellow worker or employer.
What are some typical workplace hazards?
Hazard and risk assessments are crucial for the majority of chemist tasks because of the often dangerous chemicals and equipment that can be used in this occupation. While there is always some degree of responsibility on the part of the employee to ensure safety standards are met, the employer has a wider prerogative to look after workers. That means the work environment must meet certain safety standards, such as being well lit and free from obstacles.
A failure to inspect the work premises on a regular basis could mean they were to blame if, for example, you sustained serious burn injuries or a fractured bone after a heavy fall. If this is your situation, seek chemist injury advice, because it is your right to claim if they were negligent.
Why should I seek chemist injury advice?
Chemists not only work in labs, but also in pharmacies. If you were working and suffered a serious fall or trip, then the organisation you work for could be liable. All worker rights regarding injuries are the same. As long as it has not been more than three years since the accident, then we can help. We offer chemist injury advice and legal representation to victims who need it. If you think you might be one of those victims, take our online 30-second test now; it will even give you a claim estimate.
What can I claim for?
Personal injury claims cover special and general damages. General damages relate to the how the accident and injures have affected you, so they will be a means of compensation for suffering and pain. This will supported by evidence, and you may need to see a private medical specialist to prove the claims. Special damages include reimbursement for medication costs, aids you now need (such as a wheelchair), and the cost of travelling to the hospital for treatment.
