Lack of attention paid caused my accident – can you claim accident at work compensation in Wrexham?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we hear the above problem a lot – lack of attention at work can cause accidents. One of the most common reasons why claims for accident at work compensation in Wrexham are raised is because a work colleague wasn’t paying the right amount of attention while carrying out his or her job. In fact, it can sometimes be the case that they weren’t concentrating while being trained and missed an important safety tip that they would later rely on in the face of an avoidable accident; a safety tip that might have prevented you from being injured.
While in the workplace it is expected that you and all other members of staff are safe and a failure to ensure safety in the workplace can lead to unfortunate accidents that can leave you – or individuals just like you – with injuries and a set of unfolding circumstances that would have otherwise been avoided.
Were you hurt because they weren’t looking?
Again, this is something else our advisers at Accident Advice Helpline hear a lot. It may be a momentary lapse in concentration or members of staff engrossed in conversation, but this is no comfort to you if you are the one that has suffered the injuries as a result of their lack of concentration. Accident at work compensation in Wrexham has been awarded to people very much like you because they were injured as a result of a colleague’s lack of concentration on the factory floor, in the car park or canteen; the location is unimportant, but the lack of concentration is.
They used the machinery unsafely
In a manufacturing environment, the need to pay strict attention to health and safety procedures is of the utmost importance, and a failure to do so can often lead to injuries, either to you or other members of your workforce. Accident at work compensation in Wrexham has been paid out to many people who have been injured by flying debris that has escaped from machinery where guards weren’t in place or similarly sustained cuts or even the loss of a digit or limb because guards were removed or not closed.
