Using an accident solicitor in North Lanarkshire
People who run businesses in the UK are responsible for the safety of their workforces and any guests to their business. An accident solicitor in North Lanarkshire can take you through all the stages you need to make to go forward with a claim. Businesses are bound by law to hold an insurance policy and conform to Health & Safety regulations and to ensure they meet those responsibilities.
If you know your boss has not met these regulations and the outcome has led to injury at work, then compensation could be yours. If you have had an accident at work, in the past three years, then you could get compensation by making an accident at work claim.
If you are injured at work for any of the ensuing reasons, then you may have a permissible foundation for an injured at work compensation claim:
- Incomplete equipment
- Inexperience of, or unacceptable adherence to, Health & Safety regulations
- Inadequate training
- Sloppiness of colleagues
- Trip, slip or fall
- Falling object
- Unsafe substances or environment
Wide-ranging types of injury claims you can make
If you have been injured at work then you might need to take a period of time off work, which could lead to economic hardship – another reason to make a claim for hurt at work compensation. If you have been seriously injured then you may find yourself needing to take a long period of time off work, which could lead to financial difficulty – another reason to make a claim for work accident compensation.
It is worth noting that even if you have contributed to your work accident, if your employer is demonstrated primarily responsible for your hurt then you may still be able to claim work compensation.
The sorts of injuries that can be compensated for include, but are not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Muscular harm
- Asbestos-related illness
- Repetitive strain injury
- Back injuries
- Trip hazard injuries
Recurrent types of accidents in the workplace:
- Skidding on wet surfaces
- Falling over equipment left lying around
- Falls from height
- Lifting and carrying accidents
- Accidents involving equipment
