Are you making accident and injury claims in Buckhaven against an employer?
When companies employ people, they are required to implement very strict health and safety guidelines. In addition to training members of staff appropriately, companies must ensure that their employees are able to work in a safe environment and that they aren’t put in any unnecessary danger.
If businesses fail to follow these guidelines, employees could easily get hurt. In addition to facing legal sanctions, companies could also face accident and injury claims in Buckhaven.
If you’ve been hurt at work and the incident wasn’t your fault, why not find out more about making a compensation claim?
Was your employer at fault?
If your employer has deliberately ignored health and safety laws and you have been hurt as a result, it should be fairly straightforward for you to make a claim against them. However, even if the company has adhered to the law, they could still be held responsible for your injuries.
As long as you can show that you didn’t contribute to the cause of your injuries and that your employer is responsible, you should be able to obtain compensation from them.
Of course, you will also need to show that you received medical help for your injuries in order to be able to make a claim.
When did the incident occur?
If you’re considering making accident and injury claims in Buckhaven, you’ll want to make sure that you don’t leave it too late. Although you aren’t expected to make a claim straight after an accident has occurred, there are time limits on how long you’ve got to obtain compensation.
In most cases, claimants are expected to take legal action within three years of being hurt so you may need to act quickly in order to obtain compensation for your injuries.
What type of injuries can you make a claim for?
As long as you received medical treatment for them, you can make a claim for a variety of injuries including:
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Nerve Damage
