If you get injured while at work, you may need to find out how an accident solicitor for Cullompton claims can help you. Maybe you work in a storage place that specialises in frozen goods and you got locked in a freezer because someone was careless; it could even be that a reckless forklift truck driver ran over your foot while listening to music. The point is that if you were are work when you had your accident and it was due to a third party being reckless, then you may be able to claim compensation for what happened to you.
If you are worried about making a compensation claim against the company that you work for because you are frightened that they will dismiss you because of it, you can rest assured that it is illegal to do so. You should make sure that you have recorded your accident in the accident book and also been treated by a medical professional.
If you were examined by the company doctor or nurse, it is always a wise move to get a second opinion in a situation like this. The reason is that the medical record of your injuries will be requested as evidence as to how bad your injuries are. We are not suggesting that the company medic might be biased in the case of a compensation claim, but we are advising that it is preferable to have an unbiased account of your injuries.
