Did you know that if you have had an accident at work you could have the right to make accident and injury claims in Lewes? Of course, the precise nature of your accident will need to be taken into account to determine whether or not you are eligible to make a claim, but generally speaking if you have been injured in an accident at work that was not your fault then you will be able to claim.
Find out who can make accident and injury claims in Lewes
So, how do you know whether or not you can qualify to make a claim? It’s simple – look at the situation which led to your accident.
Do you think that the accident was someone else’s fault? Even if no one else was involved at the precise time of the accident, could the incident itself have been prevented if someone had behaved differently or done something else?
One classic example could be in the case of training. If you have been asked to do a job, but have not been provided with the right training to do it, then you could find that you are injured as a result. It could be that you have been asked to move items from one area of the office to another, without the proper manual handling training you could put your back at risk if you do not lift the items correctly.
Although only you would have been involved in the accident at the time it took place, it is your lack of training that caused the accident to happen. Your training needs should have been identified, and taken care of by your employer. It would therefore be their fault that the accident occurred, and it would therefore be against them that you can make a claim.
We do not expect you to always know who it is that is responsible for your accident – in fact, that is why we are here in the first place. We will be able to look at the facts and determine against whom to make your claim. All you have to do is get in touch.
