Accident at work compensation in Dinas Powys

0

The name of this particular village might make you realise it is in Wales. It’s actually towards the southern end of the country and is located in the Vale of Glamorgan. It has a population numbering only about 7,500 people. Some of those work locally while others travel some distance to their workplace. However, few of them will claim accident at work compensation in Dinas Powys even when they work nearby.

The reason for this is because of the effect the Health and Safety at Work Act has had on the safety in workplaces all over the country. Since it was first brought into play back in the 1970s, there has been a greatly reduced number of accidents occurring anywhere. Even when things do go wrong, they tend to be minor in nature. Few accidents lead to people sustaining serious injuries.

Amputations at work

Needless to say, an amputation is a serious injury. It can potentially threaten the life of the person concerned, mainly due to blood loss. However, even if someone survives, they can be left with a very different outlook on life. They may have lost a finger or a toe, or even a limb.

Amputations could potentially happen if no safety guards are in place on machinery that is being used in a factory or other similar setting. They have occurred in rare instances on farms as well. When you consider the use of tractors, combine harvesters and other large vehicles and items of machinery, you can see how this could have the potential to occur.

Does your serious injury warrant you to make a compensation claim?

A serious injury in itself does not mean a claim can be made. For this to be possible, you must prove a third party was responsible for what happened. if a guard was removed or wasn’t present in the first place, and this led to your accident happening, then yes, there could be a good chance you could receive some compensation.
