Kent has recently been voted as Europe’s top family destination by Lonely Planet, and Medway lies in the heart of this stunning part of the country. But despite the region’s beauty, the people of Medway are not safe from workplace accidents.
Medway has seen a great deal of development, especially to its riversides, over the last decade or so, and this has seen many new construction opportunities open up. Job opportunities are a great thing for a community and the people of Medway have taken full advantage.
But construction work has its dark side, when working in such an industry, you have to rely on faith in your employers that the equipment and machinery you are using is of an acceptable and safe quality and undergoes regular maintenance.
Unfortunately far too often this is not true and serious injury can occur when using defective, faulty or poorly maintained equipment. If you are the victim of such an injury, the blame should not be placed at your feet, and you are entitled to make accident at work claims in Medway for your injury and the difficult times that follow.
Do not suffer in silence – make accident at work claims in Medway
An injury caused by faulty machinery can be incredibly serious and the repercussions can be severe and long lasting.
Even after you’re recovery is complete, which in itself could involve lengthy hospital stays, huge amounts of physiotherapy and rehabilitation and long periods of heavy medication, there are the longer lasting effects on your emotional and psychological state, and physically you may never be the same again after such a terrible accident.
It is the duty of your employer to make sure all the equipment and machinery that you use is up to at least an acceptable standard, if they fail to do this, and this unprofessional action on the side of your employer directly results in you being hurt, then Accident Advice Helpline believe that you should be compensated for the pain and upset caused, as well as the emotional problems and the extra financial strains that are caused by you being limited in your movement and capabilities for any length of time.
