Have you been injured in an accident at work?
Accidents in the workplace are unfortunately more common than any of us would like them to be and as such during the course of a year there are thousands of individuals injured in the workplace through no fault of their own. Accident Advice Helpline are here to offer friendly expert advice which can help you redress the balance if you have been injured at work and possibly go on to ensure you receive accident at work compensation in Port Talbot.
Accidents in the workplace can happen for a whole host of reasons, chief amongst them being a lack of understanding when it comes to how the company’s health and safety procedures operate. There may also be issues with poor or inadequate training, badly maintained equipment or a lack of health and safety aids which would reduce the numbers of accidents likely to occur. If you have been the victim of an accident and it wasn’t your fault call us today at Accident Advice Helpline as you may be entitled to accident at work compensation in Port Talbot.
Could your accident at work be avoided?
When we ask this question we don’t necessarily mean could it have been avoided by you. Unfortunately, the problem with accidents in the workplace is that for the most part they cannot be avoided by the unfortunate victim. However, they may well have been preventable if other members of the workforce or your employer had taken different steps or introduced different measures of health and safety. If your accident was such that there was no way you could have prevented it from happening to you then Accident Advice Helpline can help look at whether or not the liability is that of your employer or those responsible for ensuring your health and safety procedures work properly. Failing to provide proper health and safety measures in the workplace is a failure in the duty of care to all employees and may result in you receiving accident at work compensation in Port Talbot if the accident wasn’t your fault.
