    Carmarthen Accident at Work Claim

    If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault you may be entitled to make a Carmarthen accident at work claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline can help you get justice for the injuries you have sustained.

    The main criteria to be eligible to make a Carmarthen accident at work claim for compensation are:

    • The accident mustn’t have been your fault
    • It must have been within the last 3 years (in most cases)
    • You must have sustained injuries that required medical attention as a direct result of the accident

    What sort of accident can I claim for?

    An employee can make a Carmarthen accident at work claim for any type of accident that caused injury to them, as long as it wasn’t their fault. The injuries people sustain in workplace accidents vary greatly, from cuts and bruises to the loss of a limb or even death. If you’re unsure whether you can claim then contact the friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline who will help you to see if you are eligible to make a Carmarthen accident at work claim.

    What are the most common reasons for making a Carmarthen accident at work claim?

    There are many causes of accidents but the two biggest industries that seem to be where the majority of claimants come from are farming and construction. Both industries are far safer than they were years ago, but the nature of the work undertaken, and the heavy usage of plant and power tools, makes serious injuries far more likely when something does go wrong.

    What about exposure to chemicals and toxins?

    Many people are exposed to dangerous chemicals and materials as part of their job, and while current workers are generally well aware of the associated risks, not all employers take the necessary precautions. Anyone who develops an industrial illness after working with hazardous substances could be entitled to claim. Some of the most common industrial illnesses we see are:

    • Repetitive strain injuries
    • Dermatitis
    • Back injuries
    • Malignant mesothelioma
    • Asbestosis
    • Asbestos related lung cancer
    • Emphysema
    • Industrial deafness
    • Hand-arm vibration syndrome

    Many of these are life threatening, or have a long-term impacts on the quality of the sufferer’s life.

    Is making a claim for an industrial illness any different?

    Most factors of the claim are the same. The longer-term effects of the illness are usually a much bigger factor, and the three year claim rule doesn’t apply in the same way. Many of these industrial diseases take time to develop and become apparent, so in this case you have three years from the date of diagnosis, or the date you became aware of the condition.
