What is a substation injury?
The most prominent dangers associated with electrical substations should be obvious. The most hazardous is unsurprisingly the presence of electricity. If you are not properly trained in the use of the conduits and machines present at a substation, you put your life in danger by interacting with them. While injuries related to a failure to adhere to relevant safety protocols are not eligible for compensation, you may be able to file a claim if you were instructed to work with electrical substation equipment if you were not properly trained first.
The industrial environments in which these electrical substations are usually found tend to be noisy and distracting places. They can also be dim and dirty, depending on how well they are maintained. Therefore, it is vital that suitable safety protocols are put in place to protect workers. If injuries occur and these safety protocols have not been put in place, it could constitute a legal breach of care, and you could be eligible for a hefty financial reward.
Who should I talk to?
If you think that you might be eligible to pursue a claim for compensation, or if you would like to receive substation injury advice from one of our friendly advisors, pick up the phone and call our free 24-hour helpline on 0800 180 4123. We will record the details of your accident and injuries, as well as assess any evidence that you may wish to use to support your claim.
The stronger your case is the better the chance is that your claim will result in an adequate pay-out, hopefully the maximum amount proposed. If possible, take clear colour photographs of your injuries and the site at which they were sustained. You are much more likely to be compensated fully if you can provide clear evidence of neglect or failure on the part of the third party.
