At Accident Advice Helpline we answer questions on all kinds of mishaps that may happen to a person that are not their fault, whether accidents whilst driving, medical negligence or accidental falls or trips. Many of these are completely out of the hands of the injured party – no one can be responsible for other drivers on the road and doctors as a group are people who are trusted to be able to do their job without input from the patient. It is possible, though, with some forethought, to prevent workplace accidents.
Work as a team
Without being a bully, it is a good idea if everyone in the workplace can be persuaded to work with the team, because then the environment will essentially be policed for health and safety violations every minute of the working day. It soon becomes second nature to check for trailing leads, spills or abandoned waste and the whole area will be more pleasant to work in and the measures taken to prevent workplace accidents can even have a knock-on effect out of work, making homes safer too.
Help to prevent workplace accidents
Visiting any health and safety or government website will give invaluable help to anyone who is seeking to make their workplace safer to be in. If the worst does happen, though, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you work out what your claim might be worth. Our advisors are available throughout the day to give personal advice and we are also accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and Lexcel, the Law Society’s practice management standard so you know you are getting the best advice there is.
AAH have been in the business of helping people claim for accidents that are not their fault for years now and are proud to have as their patron Esther Rantzen, who has been the consumers’ spokesperson for decades. Like AAH, she agrees that it is important to make every attempt to prevent workplace accidents but is equally keen that anyone who has been disadvantaged by someone else’s negligence should receive proper recompense. Key to this is that the process should be simple and this is just what you get from our website – a quick 30-second test to check what your claim might be and after that, at no-obligation, a personal estimation of how to proceed. Prevention is better than cure but when prevention fails, there is Accident Advice Helpline.
