Every year there are a large number of workplace injury claims in Neath Port Talbot which is hardly surprising given the number of industrial companies and retail outlets in the area. Many of the victims of these workplace accidents come to Accident Advice Helpline for assistance with registering their claims. We are after all, one of the UK’s favourite injury claim lawyers.
Every worker has a legal right to expect their workplace to be a safe environment. There may always be risks of course, but under normal circumstances these risks will be mitigated by the carrying out of risk assessments and the instigation of safe working procedures, the operation of C.O.S.H.H. (Care of Substances Hazardous to Health) protocols and the issue of appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
But even with all of these health and safety measures in place, accidents still happen, and where these accidents are deemed to be the fault of the employer, the injured employee is legally and morally entitled to claim personal injury compensation. Employees sometimes feel somewhat guilty about claiming compensation, as they see it as biting the hand that feeds them. But all employers must by law have insurance protection for their employees, and it is this insurance that kicks in to cover any compensation awards that might need paying.

The amount of compensation that is paid out for the various claims in Neath Port Talbot varies considerably from claim to claim.
