At Accident Advice Helpline, we deal with workplace accident claims of all kinds, and our highly trained team is always ready to give gas rig injury advice if you need it. Because our helpline is open round the clock you can call it whenever it’s convenient for you, even if you’re working odd hours. We can talk through your accident with you and let you know what your legal options are. We may also be able to tell you roughly how much compensation you could claim for your injuries.
What happens after an injury?
After you are injured, it’s important that you get medical treatment, even if you think you will recover without. This is because there may be damage that isn’t immediately apparent, and it is also important to ensure that there is a medical record of your injuries. You should also make sure that your supervisor has recorded what happened in the rig’s accident book. If you have suffered a serious injury, the supervisor or the company boss should also send a report to the Health and Safety Executive.
If you want to claim compensation for your injury, you will need to take action within three years of the accident occurring. You cannot claim compensation if you were the only person at fault for your accident, but if your bosses have failed to take adequate safety precautions, or to provide you with the training and support you should have received, you may well have a case. If you are unsure about your situation, you can always seek gas rig injury advice from us.

Claiming from your company
Some people worry that claiming from the company they work for could make their employment situation difficult. There are laws, in fact, to protect you from being sacked in this situation. We often find that people are supported at work because their colleagues and supervisors are glad that attention has been drawn to a problem, meaning that it’s likely to be fixed and made safer for everyone.
Managers are often working within tight safety budgets and are better able to get extra money from their bosses to resolve problems once they realise that a financial risk is involved. As any payment usually comes out of an employer’s liability insurance, however, there is no need to worry about putting the company under the sort of immediate financial pressure that could threaten jobs.
