Accidental injuries suffered at your place of work
When you go to work you expect to be safe – or as safe as is possible – during the hours you are there. If you have suffered an accident and subsequent injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence, poor training, lack of concentration or because of poorly maintained machinery then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Rutherglen. To find out if you are entitled to make a claim for an accident that wasn’t your fault Accident Advice Helpline are here to help with any questions or queries you may have.
Injured through no fault of your own at work?
If you have been injured at work then your injuries should have been attended to as soon as possible even if only to stop or stem the bleeding or to ensure a reduction in the risk of infection or further injury. To this end a first aid representative should have attended to your wounds in the workplace whilst waiting for the emergency services to arrive.
If this did not happen or there was a lack of first aid resources on hand then you may be eligible to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Rutherglen, as your injuries could have been made worse. As a rule of employment law there must be a qualified first aider on hand in the workplace if an accident occurs and failure to provide such a basic yet vital service can be seen as a failure to look after the interests of the workforce.
A lack of first aid resources in the workplace?
Failing to provide first aid personnel in the workplace can be the difference between insuring an injury doesn’t get any worse and causing the accident victim to end up in an even more precarious position. Accident at work compensation may be payable if you have sustained injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault and also not received the correct level of first aid.
