    Compensation for a digger accident at work


    Diggers can weigh thousands of kilograms, which gives them the potential to cause serious injury or death. For this reason, diggers should only be operated by trained individuals. If somebody who has not been trained operates a digger, a digger accident at work could occur, leading to severe injuries or worse.

    From crush injuries and broken bones to severe head injuries, a digger accident at work has the potential to change your life, and if you’ve been injured, Accident Advice Helpline can offer confidential, no-obligation advice.

    Ask yourself what caused your accident – was somebody else negligent? Sometimes, this negligence is obvious, like a worker not applying the brakes on a digger, or an untrained worker operating a digger. Other times, it’s not so obvious.

    It could be that your employer hasn’t carried out safety inspection on the digger, spotting potentially dangerous faults that have caused your accident. If you feel your employer (or a co-worker) is to blame for your accident, call us for advice – we’ve been helping people claim compensation since 2000.

    You deserve compensation

    One thing is for sure, if you have been injured and somebody else is to blame, you deserve to be compensated. There’s talk of ‘compensation culture’ sweeping the UK, but in reality, if you have been hurt and have suffered financial losses as a result of somebody else’s negligence, why shouldn’t you be compensated?

    Aside from physical injuries, pain and suffering, you may suffer loss of earnings, have to cover medical expenses and even find yourself unable to return to work, if you have been seriously injured.

    Life-changing injuries may mean you’re confined to a wheelchair or require ongoing care and treatment in the future, and you might have to pay for the cost of modifications to your home to make it more accessible. All these things cost money, and a personal injury settlement could help ease the financial strain. Our expert personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so that’s another financial weight off your mind.

    Don’t wait too long

    It can be tempting to put off making a claim until you have fully recovered from your accident, but don’t delay for too long. There’s a three-year time limit in place for all personal injury claims, so if you leave it too long, you may find you’ve missed out on a golden opportunity. It’s easy to get advice and answers to any questions you have about the claims process – just call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 today.
