Assess your Arbroath accident at work claim
Using our unique 30-second test, our friendly advisors will check that your accident or illness entitles you to make a claim.
- To claim, someone else must be responsible for your accident.
- You must start your claim within 3 years of an accident, or in the case of industrial illness, you have 3 years from the time your injury is diagnosed.
- You must have your injuries treated by a medical practitioner. This records them so that your doctor can provide a report, and will mean you get the correct treatment.
What sort of injuries might you suffer?
An accident at work can be a simple slip, trip or fall, or it can be something more serious. Your employer should take all possible precautions to make sure their employees work in a safe environment. If things go wrong, and you are injured as a result, this could lead to an Arbroath accident at work claim.
Here are just some of the things you could claim for.
- Repetitive strain injury is common and is caused by doing the same movement for long periods of time. This can be helped with rest breaks or being moved to a different job for parts of the day.
- Vibration white finger is caused by using heavy machinery. Employers can help to protect their employees by keeping machinery maintained and providing anti-vibration gloves.
- Working with chemicals is dangerous and should only be done with strict controls in place. If your employer fails in this, you could breath in toxic fumes or suffer a nasty chemical burn.
If anything happens at work and results in an injury, report it through the proper channels.
