    How to claim work laceration compensation


    An accident at work could leave you suffering from minor or serious lacerations which could require medical attention. In the case of serious lacerations to your face, hands or other parts of the body, you may even be left with permanent scarring which can affect you psychologically, leading to the development of anxiety and depression. But you don’t have to suffer in silence if you have suffered lacerations at work and somebody else is to blame. Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a 100% no win, no fee claim for work laceration compensation which could help to cover your household bills and compensate you for financial losses whilst you recover from your injuries.

    Accidents leading to lacerations

    If you have been injured in an accident at work, your employer could be held responsible – it’s their duty to ensure that employees are safe at work. Here are a few examples of the types of accidents which could lead to a work laceration compensation claim:

    • Lacerations caused by a fall through a window or roof light – for example whilst working on a construction site
    • Slipping on broken glass or crockery whilst working in a bar or restaurant
    • Lacerations from knives and sharp objects whilst working in a commercial kitchen (in a hotel, restaurant etc.)
    • Serious lacerations from industrial machinery with sharp parts
    • Lacerations caused by faulty office equipment – such as a sharp edge on a photocopier or printer

    If you have suffered lacerations at work, it could be caused by a dangerous workplace, faulty equipment or a careless colleague. Whatever has happened, claiming work laceration compensation is an option provided it has been three years or less since your accident.

    Should you claim?

    Employers will have liability insurance in place which protects them in the event of an injury claim by an employee, so there’s no need to feel worried or guilty about making a personal injury claim; chances are you won’t even need to go to court. You might need stitches, surgery or other treatment in hospital for your lacerations, leading to time off work and loss of earnings.

    Accident Advice Helpline will take into account your financial losses and the cost of any medical treatment or therapy you need to recover after your accident when working out your personal injury settlement, so give us a call on 0800 689 0500 to find out if you could make a claim today.
