If you have ever visited, or been in close proximity to, a landfill site, you will know that it is easy to fall victim to an injury in this kind of environment, particularly if the necessary safety protocols are not upheld. If an injury occurs on a landfill site, as a result of safety failures, a landfill accident claim can be sought and compensation may be paid, in order to cover lost earnings and medical bills.
Negligence, with regards to landfill sites, can be a tricky subject – one which is made even trickier by questions of liability and responsibility. Whilst landfill operatives have a superior, or a site manager, to report to in the event of an accident, what are the guidelines pertaining to public use of landfill sites?
Where does the responsibility of the individual end, and the responsibility of the site manager begin? Without the proper legal advice, this can be a tough question to answer, so why not pick up the phone and give Accident Advice Helpline a call?

We always pursue the maximum amount of compensation, and we keep clients in the loop at every stage of the claims process.
Our solicitors operate on a no win, no fee basis, in order to secure the compensation that you deserve, from the people, or organisations, that have failed in their duty of care.

Can I make a claim?
If you do decide to pursue compensation, our experts will guide you through the legal process. They will record the details of the accident, and evaluate any evidence that you may wish to use to support your claim. You will be paired with one of our specialist solicitors, who will walk you through the paperwork, and answer any questions that you might have about what is happening, what will happen, and how it will affect you.
If necessary, we can even accommodate the continued presence of a friend or family member throughout the claims process. We understand that this kind of legal endeavour can be a strain on the emotions at times, particularly if you are suffering from psychological side-effects, in the wake of your accident.
