How did your accident at work in Shotton happen?
There are undoubtedly some jobs which are more dangerous than others – for example, agriculture is considered as the most dangerous industry to be employed in. But in reality, you could be injured in an accident at work in Shotton regardless of the type of job you work in. Perhaps you have suffered repetitive strain injury from your typing or factory job or sprained your ankle after slipping on a wet floor in the office. You may have sustained more serious, life-changing injuries in an accident on a farm or a fall from height on a construction site. Whatever has happened, you are entitled to claim compensation if somebody else (usually your employer) caused your accident. It may be that they were negligent with regards to staff training or that they failed to check and maintain equipment and machinery to a safe standard. These are two of the most common employer failings that can lead to an accident and subsequent injury.
Treatment for your accident at work in Shotton
It’s important to seek medical attention after your accident, particularly if you want to make a personal injury claim, as you’ll need to show evidence of medical treatment in order to be eligible to make a claim. For minor injuries, you may simply need to be assessed by a doctor and then sent home to rest and recover. For more serious injuries, you may need treatment in hospital or even surgery, followed by a rehabilitation period which could involve physiotherapy or other, alternative therapies. We’ll need to see evidence of the treatment you received after your accident – usually in the form of a report from a medical professional.
