If you have been injured in your work as an electroplater, you may be able to make an electroplating operator accident claim. You can call Accident Advice Helpline on our free, 24-hour helpline to learn how compensation works and to tell us about your own case. After gathering the details of your accident, we will let you know if you have sufficient grounds to pursue a claim and if you so wish, our expert solicitors can start the claims process at once.
Your rights at work
Health and safety regulations demand that your employer provide a safe environment for you to perform your duties. This means that your employer has a responsibility to ensure the workplace is safe, that you have the correct safety equipment and that the tools you use function properly. This is particularly important in your work as an electroplating operator as your job is potentially very dangerous.
While performing your duties, you may be constantly exposed to chemicals, there is a danger of burns and electric shocks occurring, as well as debris can flying up and hitting you in the eye. If your employer has been remiss with health and safety and your injuries were caused because of that, you could well be in a position to make a claim against them.
There are deadlines for making compensation claims and generally, they are within three years of your accident. That is why you need to start the process of making an electroplating operator accident claim as soon as is possible.
An important piece of evidence indicating the extent of your injuries following your electroplating injury accident is your doctor’s notes. In fact, you will not be able to make a claim without this medical evidence so it is important you see your doctor as soon after the incident as possible.
In order to make a claim, we will need to know your own recollections of the accident as soon as possible and those of anyone who were present at the time of the unfortunate incident. This why it is important to contact us as early as possible following the accident as memories will still be a lot clearer.
This evidence is important because, along with your doctor’s notes, they could provide the grounds for our lawyers here at Accident Advice Helpline to press your claim.
Compensation regulations also state that you will not be able to make a claim if you were the cause of the accident. Should your employer deny liability, the evidence provided could help refute that.
