The United Kingdom is known for its stringent health and safety laws, which ideally should protect you whilst you are at work. Sadly, sometimes things do go wrong, or employers do not follow the rules, and an innocent bystander gets injured. If you have been injured in an accident in the past three years and it was not your fault, you may want to consider claiming for workplace injuries in Cherwell.
Claiming for workplace injuries in Cherwell
There are many different ways in which someone can be hurt in an accident in the work place, such as:
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals and materials
- Incorrect lifting techniques, or lifting loads that are too heavy
- Falling from ladders, platforms or scaffolding
- Trips over items on the floor, or trailing wires and cables
- Malfunction of machinery or equipment
Some injuries are not always apparent straightaway. For example, illnesses related to the exposure of asbestos can take many years to develop, as do injuries such as deafness, back problems or vibration injuries. Whatever your injury or illness, you may want to consider getting legal help with claiming for workplace injuries in Cherwell.
Are you entitled to personal injury compensation?
To be eligible to make a claim, the accident that you were injured in has to have taken place within the past three years, or within three years of the date that it can be reasonably assumed that the injury or illness was a result of the accident. It needs to have happened because of the negligent behaviour of your employer or a colleague, and your injuries need to have required medical attention. We will need to see evidence as this, such as your medical records.
