Establish who caused your accident
Accidents can, unfortunately, happen at any time, even when highly-trained and careful professionals are involved. You may have been injured working on site due to faulty equipment, dangerous surroundings or someone else’s negligence. There may have been risks on site that were not directly caused by another electrical engineer or support staff, but which were caused by someone who wasn’t there at the time of your accident. Accident Advice Helpline could help you to pursue a claim for financial compensation if your accident was not your fault, happened in the last three years and required medical attention.
The benefits of claiming
There are various benefits of claiming compensation for your accident as an electrical engineer. You may have suffered serious injuries, meaning you are experiencing loss of earnings, stress or other psychological effects or physical distress. In the worst case scenario, your career as an electrical engineer may have been cut short by your accident, seriously undermining your ability to pay your bills and other obligations. Furthermore, making a claim for compensation could highlight potential issues at your workplace and lead to more effective safety measures being put in place, saving others from suffering from an accident similar to yours.
