Do you need to know about making an accident claim in North Tyneside?
Injuries can happen in many different ways but they often occur in dangerous environments, such as on building or construction sites. As construction jobs often require people to use a variety of different machinery, people get injured if they’re not trained properly.
If you’re required to use a forklift at work, for example, your employer should ensure that you receive the appropriate instructions and that you have the relevant certification. If they fail to do this and you’re hurt as a result, you may be able to obtain compensation from them.
Alternatively, if you are given faulty equipment or machinery to use and you suffer an injury as a result, your employer could be held liable and you may be able to make a claim against them.
Is it easy to make a compensation claim?
Obtaining compensation following an accident doesn’t have to be difficult. Providing you can show that you weren’t at fault, that you obtained medical help following the incident and that the accident occurred in the last three years, you should have a good chance of making a successful claim.
