If you are in Hartland, injury should always result in you applying for an accident injury claim in Hartland when the accident hasn’t been your fault.

Problems that can lead to an accident injury claim in Hartland
- Industrial deafness – One of the problems faced by those who work on construction sites or in factories is that they lose part or all of their hearing from the loud noises made by machinery. Someone who has to work in a mine, for example, may eventually lose their hearing because of the enclosed space and constant sound of drills.
- Vibration white finger – The constant movement of a piece of machinery may cause injuries, and those who have operated a drill for a long period of time may know already of the dangers of white finger vibration. This kind of problem damages the nerves in your hands and arms, and can eventually lead to a loss of use of your appendages.
- Eye damage – Someone who works in construction will at some point have used a welding machine. This emits a very bright spark, which is why they also wear a welder’s mask. However, this offers little protection from the long-term dangers of exposure to a welding torch, and those who use them deserve some compensation if they are injured in the long term.
