Askam-in-Furness is a civil parish in the county of Cumbria. It originally consisted of two separate coastal villages with different origins and histories, which have since merged to become one continuous settlement. Askam-in-Furness has its origins as a medieval farming village clustered on the hillside, overlooking the flat sands of the Duddon Estuary.
Accident Advice Helpline and our accident lawyers in Askam-in-Furness specialise in dealing with clients who wish to pursue a claim for compensation. We were established in the year 2000, and we have a wealth of expertise in dealing with all types of personal injury claims.
Accidents in the agriculture sector
Agriculture is responsible for a greater number of fatal injuries over the last five years than in any other sector.
Askam-in-Furness has a huge array of wildlife and nature reserves, which are beautiful for tourists and residents alike. However, the people working within the sectors of agriculture, forestry and fishing are working in the most dangerous industry there is. They could easily be involved in a non-fault accident, and may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim.
People are sometimes unsure about whether they are able to claim and how to go about it. With the countless adverts blaring from different companies all claiming to be the best, it can be extremely confusing to know where to turn. Accident Advice Helpline can offer totally free, no-obligation advice to members of the public. We have one of the highest success rates in the whole country and a celebrity endorsement from UK charity figure Dame Esther Rantzen, who fully recommends us.
Every employer by law must have Health and Safety procedures in place, to assess risks in the workplace and highlight steps to prevent injury to their employees. They are also required to hold employer’s liability insurance to cover any claims for compensation in the unfortunate event that an employee or visitor is injured in the workplace. This means that you are not suing your employer personally, but their insurance company.
If you have suffered at work, it may be because of someone else’s negligence — maybe the correct safety measures were not put in place, maybe you didn’t receive adequate training, did not have the correct uniform or apparatus to carry out your work to a safe standard; whatever the reason, our accident lawyers in Askam-in-Furness are here to help you.
