Accidents at work
If you have been involved in an accident at work, that was not your fault, then there is a chance that you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation against your employer.
Making such a claim can be more complicated than one involving a road traffic accident, as liability may be disputed and evidence will need to be gathered. This is one of the main reasons that you ought to ensure that you have a professional and fully experienced accident lawyer in Tewkesbury on your side.
How an accident lawyer in Tewkesbury can help

A lawyer will look at the facts of your case and help establish whether or not the accident was your fault. If it wasn’t then they will be able to start the ball rolling on your claim. The next thing that they will need to do is find out who is going to be held legally liable for the accident.
Depending on the circumstances this could be another member of staff, your employer or it could be a completely different situation.
For example, if you have been injured as a result of faulty equipment, it could be a case that your employer is liable or the manufacturer of the equipment itself. Your lawyer will need to look at what could have, and should have, been done to prevent the accident form occurring to establish where blame is likely to lie.
