Injured in the course of carrying out your job? Need accident at work compensation in Dundee?
Have you suffered injuries that have left you unable to return to work? Are you convalescing at home as the result of an accident that was someone else’s fault? If so then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Dundee.
There are those who suggest we live in a compensation culture, but the truth is there are far more accidents occurring in the workplace than needs to be and all because of a lack of understanding, correct training and in many instances poorly maintained machinery, which has led to accidents unfolding.
Let’s examine it for what it is, we live in a climate where having a job (whether it be high paid or otherwise) is better than having no job at all, and the loss of such a job, through no fault of your own, can come as something of a blow. This is made even worse if the injuries you have sustained could have been avoided if only others around you had paid more attention or had a better standard of training.
Accident Advice Helpline has provided help and support to many individuals who have suffered such injuries at work, and have found themselves unable to work as a direct result, and in a great many cases have helped them make a claim for accident at work compensation in Dundee.
Too little too late when it comes to training
It is a sad fact that many people are only re-trained after an accident has occurred in the workplace and has left an unfortunate accident victim with injuries, which could have been avoided if only they had been trained properly in the first place. Whilst certainly Accident Advice Helpline are here to help those unfortunate accident victims make successful claims for accident at work compensation in Dundee, their goal also is to ensure where possible that such accidents are prevented from happening again in future.
There is a high percentage of accident at work compensation claims in Dundee that end with members of staff being retrained, machinery being revamped or repaired and more emphasis being paid on the prevention of accidents. Whilst we take no comfort in saying it, many accidents are caused because training has not been up to par, machinery has been less than properly maintained and levels of health and safety have been below standard.
