    Compensation for electricians hurt at work


    Working as an electrician can be dangerous work, particularly if your employer doesn’t take the health and safety of their staff seriously. Regulations such as the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 are in place to help ensure that electrical work is carried out safely and to minimise the risk of accidents occurring. Electricians hurt at work may find they are eligible to claim personal injury compensation, if they claim within three years of their accident occurring. So if your employer has been negligent and you’ve been injured as a result, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to see how we can help you make a claim.

    Electricians hurt at work could sustain serious injuries – live electricity has the potential to cause burns, blindness and even death. Here are a few examples of the types of injuries which could be sustained:

    • Burns to the face and body
    • Ongoing symptoms such as muscle discomfort, heart problems and nerve problems
    • Blindness
    • Internal burns to your lungs or throat

    You deserve to be compensated if more could have been done to prevent your accident from occurring.

    Claiming against your employer

    After your accident, it’s easy to think, “Oh, I shouldn’t take action against my employer.’ Actually, you’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation if your employer’s negligence has led to your accident and subsequent injuries. Don’t feel guilty, as your employer should have liability insurance in place to use in the event of a claim from an employee. We aim to make the claims process as simple as possible – the best part? Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis and the chances are, you won’t need to attend court, as most claims can be processed in full over the phone.

    Your right to compensation

    There has been talk of the UK’s ‘compensation culture’ in recent years, where members of the public claim for even the smallest of injuries. However, if you’ve suffered a minor or severe injury after an electrical accident at work, you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if somebody else is to blame. Claim the compensation you deserve and call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 – it’s free to call and receive confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert personal injury advisors. We have been endorsed by our patron, UK consumer champion Esther Rantzen, for our excellent customer service, so to find out how we could help you make a claim, get in touch today.
