    Accident lawyer in Bury


    Bury is a large town with a population of over 78,000 people. It sits within Greater Manchester, with Manchester itself some distance south of Bury. The town is also within the borough of the same name. With a population of this size, it probably wouldn’t be too taxing to locate an accident lawyer in Bury if you had good reason to look for one.

    Since you are already reading this, you might well have good reason to speak with an accident lawyer. This is someone who deals with compensation claims put forward by those who have been injured in accidents they didn’t cause. Yet while some accidents are just that – freak accidents that are no one’s fault – others are clearly caused because someone else was negligent. A few of those accidents may potentially happen at work.

    Crush injuries at work

    Most workplaces are very safe, and we have the Health and Safety at Work Act to thank for this. It came into being in 1974, and since then, employers have adhered to the rules and regulations laid down in the Act. This has reduced the number of accidents at work by a huge margin.

    One example of a possible accident someone might have at work is one which involves crush injuries. This might happen if someone falls from a height, suffering the injuries as they land, either on the ground or on something else. Other crush injuries could potentially be caused if someone is struck by a moving vehicle, or if something falls on them. Similarly, they may be caused if someone is working with machinery, and they trap a finger, hand, or arm (or other part of the body) in that machinery. This type of accident may well incur an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive, and if the employer is found to have been negligent, it can make a claim by the injured person much easier to process. Does this situation sound familiar to you, perhaps because you have been through a similar accident already?
