If you are an employee and you suffer an accident at work because of your employers negligence, then you could be entitled to compensation by making Cannock Chase claims, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim compensation for the injuries you sustained in the accident.
Your boss should make sure that they protect your health and safety while you are at work and if they fail in this duty and you are injured an accident, then they may have to face Cannock Chase claims if you decide to make a claim for compensation against them.
Employee compensation from Cannock Chase claims
If you are injured in an accident at work, the businesses employers liability insurance should settle your claim. Innocent victims need have no worries that making a claim will lose their workmates their job or that the business will cease trading, because the employer will not have to pay the compensation themselves.
This is assuming of course they you are not employed by one of the exceptions for the need of this insurance, or that your employer is not trading illegally by not having this cover. Employers who say they cannot afford this insurance could be in for a nasty shock if there are injuries in the work place. Not only could they be facing Cannock Chase claims for compensation, but a fine of up to £2500 per day they were without the insurance.
Industrial illnesses and conditions
You could suffer more that just a one off injury from your employment. You could also suffer from an illness or condition that could take years for it to develop. Your employer still has to protect you from these as much as they do from a one off accident, and you are just as entitled to compensation if they do not. Some of the cause of these illnesses and conditions can be:
- Constant twisting of your wrist that might cause repetitive strain injury
- Having to constantly twist and turn because of a lack of space can damage your back
- Constantly using a keyboard can cause carpel tunnel syndrome
- The constant vibration of a piece of machinery may cause vibration white finger
- Constant exposure to certain dusts or chemicals can cause un-repairable damage to your health
- Working in loud noises all the time can cause industrial deafness
Most of these few samples of industrial problems can be avoided if the proper precautions are in place, and that is the responsibility of your employer.
