Injuries suffered whilst working with metal and accident at work compensation in Dumfries
Many thousands of individuals every year are hurt at work whilst working with metal and suffer injuries through no fault of their own. Accident Advice Helpline have been providing help and support to these people and have also been providing them with assistance in the pursuit of a claim for accident at work compensation in Dumfries if the accident they suffered was not their fault. Whilst many of those working with metal have an understanding of the dangers inherent with it, there can be times when accidents occur because attention to detail was not at a premium, training was inadequate or even after the accident there wasn’t sufficient first aid cover to deal with the issue of dressing wounds whilst waiting for the emergency services. Whatever the reason though, if the accident occurred within the last three years and was not your fault then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Dumfries.
Deep cuts and lacerations because of metal
When using metal as a material in the building profession it is important to consider just how sharp it can be. Not only can the edges of sheet metal be lethally sharp but the metal itself if cut ragged or into particular shapes can have devastating effects if they pierce the skin. Unfortunately during the course of a year, there are thousands of individuals who suffer severe cuts and lacerations using sheet metal which has involved the loss of a lot of blood, damage to tendons and nerve endings and in some instances the loss of a digit or hand. If such an accident has befallen you then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Dumfries.
In the workplace it is important that all those who work with such materials are trained correctly to ensure that there can be as little risk of threat of injury as possible If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and there was a failure to provide proper training then you may be entitled to make a claim.
