    Accident injury claim in Stockton-on-Tees


    Being involved in an accident at work can be very frustrating, especially if it means that you are likely to have time off work. However, it makes sense that if your accident occurred at work, and was perhaps the fault of your employer, there will be a degree of understanding if you need time to recover. Regardless of the situation you could be entitled to make an accident injury claim in Stockton-on-Tees and the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you to do so.

    What can you claim for?

    Ultimately you can make an accident injury claim in Stockton-on-Tees for any accidents that you did not cause. In terms of accidents that occur within the work place this can cover a multitude of things.

    You could make a claim if you have been injured as a result of a lifting accident at work. If you have been instructed to move a heavy item (or multiple items) at work then it is imperative that your employer makes sure that you have the right training to do this safely. This means that you must be aware of the proper techniques for lifting or moving items that will reduce the strain put on your back.

    It also means that you should be aware of the weight restrictions imposed. You should never be asked to lift or move something that you are not able to do safely. Anything over the prescribed weight limit should be moved with assistance, whether that be another member of staff or apparatus such as a hoist or fork lift.

    Accidents can also be caused as a result of faults within the building you a working in. If carpet tiles have not been properly secured and well maintained then there is a chance you will trip over them. Bannisters that are not secured could cause you to fall down stairs. Reception areas that do not have mats on the floor could cause you to slip if rain water or mud has made the floor slippery.
