North Somerset is a lovely place to live and to work. The stunning scenery and friendly atmosphere of the area make a day at work pass quickly and happily.
Accident Advice Helpline understand that you work hard and give your all to the job you do. All you expect in return from your employers is to be paid on time and for your health and safety to be held in the upmost importance. But what of when it is not? What happens when you are injured at work due to an accident that was not your fault? The repercussions of such an experience can be painful and terrifying.
The idea of claiming after an accident at work in North Somerset may feel like an awkward one. After all, you might think you are bringing a legal claim against your employers, and so it is understandable you would feel guilty about it. But the fact is, your employers let you down by allowing you to be in a situation that risked your safety, and they have insurance in place for events such as these.
It is their fault that you are injured, and you deserve to be compensated.
An accident at work can change your life
You do not expect to be injured at work, and if you are, it can have a huge impact on many aspects of your life.
Physically and psychologically you may never be the same again after such an experience. If your injuries are severe, it may impact your ability to do your job, leaving you unable to return to work. You may also find yourself incapable of handling even the simplest of day to day tasks.
A head, back or neck injury can cause restricted movement for a long time afterwards. If you suffer from such an injury it may cause you to need to hire in help. You may need to find extra childcare, if you are no longer able to look after your children, or pick them up from school, sports events or social occasions.
You may need help with cleaning and other chores around the house. If your injuries leave you unable to drive, you may also need to find alternative, and often expensive travel arrangements.
