Many people never have to worry about getting into an accident at work because most employees are protected by Health and Safety laws. In addition to these laws, most managers ensure that they maintain a safe working environment for their staff and they keep an eye out for any potential hazards and deal with them before they can potentially harm anyone.
Workplace accidents may happen if proper training is not carried out, leaving staff vulnerable to injury when working with new machinery or technology. Were you hurt after insufficient training? Did you hurt your back lifting or did a colleague cause you to become injured after using equipment incorrectly? If your colleague was not trained it is likely that negligence by your manager is to blame.
If you were one of the unlucky victims who suffered a workplace accident and you do not think you are to blame for the accident you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. If you were directly injured following the accident at work and required medical attention and this accident took place in the last three years you may require an accident lawyer in Clackmannanshire.
