Accident lawyers in Buckley for workplace accidents
Have you been involved in a workplace accident and do you need accident lawyers in Buckley? Perhaps you were the victim of a nasty construction incident? Maybe you have been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury and think that your employee is to blame? Whatever the scenario may be, read on to discover all you need to know about hiring accident lawyers in Buckley for workplace incidents in particular.
What type of workplace incidents can you claim for?
There are many different types of workplace claims that are made. Here are some of the most common:
- Vibration white finger
- Repetitive strain injury
- Construction incidents
- Falls from height
- Poor health and safety
- Industrial deafness
- Industrial diseases
- And much, much more!
Generally, it does not matter what type of incident that you have been involved in, the most vital thing is establishing who is to blame. If your employer is at fault you, and your accident lawyers in Buckley, will need to prove this in order to claim. Perhaps she or he did not carry out proper risk assessments? Maybe they failed to provide protective equipment? The situations vary, but proving your employer’s fault is central to the case.
Aside from this, the incident must have happened within the past three years, as this is the time limit on most personal injury cases. If your injury has developed over time, such as hearing loss, then you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead and this of course means that you can sometimes be making a claim against an employer you no longer work for.
One thing you do need to be mindful of is the fact that you will need to report the incident to your employer. All employers are required to have an accident book and they will need to record the incident in this. Failure to do so may lead to problems for you further down the line.
