If you have suffered an injury outside work that has prevented you from working then some might say the problem is of your own making. However, if you have suffered injuries at work that have prevented you from returning to work, and the accident was not your fault, you may be eligible to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Aberdeen.
Injuries that have left you unable to work – claiming accident at work compensation in Aberdeen
Annually in the United Kingdom, there are thousands of people who lose millions of sick days from work because of accidents they were involved in that were either (a) caused by others or (b) could have been avoided by the intervention of others. With this in mind, if you have suffered an accident at work and it was not your fault, call Accident Advice Helpline today and a member of our team will discuss your eligibility for accident at work compensation in Aberdeen.
Health and safety protocols in the workplace
When you first started your job you should have been shown around, shown where the emergency exits and first aid boxes were, as well as introduced to the first aiders within the company. If you weren’t, and you suffered an accident, then you may be entitled to accident at work compensation in Aberdeen.
These are things that are not taken lightly as something that ‘may be done’, but are definitely things that ‘should be done without fail’. The same applies to receiving training when it comes to lifting and handling, operating heavy or dangerous machinery, or participating in the movement of dangerous chemicals or substances. If you have not been trained properly or another person causes an accident, who has not been correctly trained, you may be entitled to accident at work compensation, if you have suffered injuries that have left you unable to work or with injuries that are long lasting, even permanent.
Are you eligible for compensation?
If you have suffered an accident in the workplace that was not your fault, and happened within the last three years and received medical attention, then you may well be entitled to receive accident at work compensation.
