Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can deal with all manner of different injuries in the workplace. On this page, however, we are going to talk you through some of the most common accidents in the workplace in Buckley.
Falls from height
Our team of experienced lawyers are often called upon to assist those who may have fallen from a height whilst at work. Remember; you don’t actually fall from that high in order to suffer serious damage. In fact, many of the most common accidents in the workplace in Buckley involves a fall from no more than a few feet up.
Many falls in the workplace are caused by incorrect training, poor quality or non-existent safety equipment or, simply, being asked to work an unsafe area. We can help with all of this.
Slips, trips, and falls
This can occur in just about any workplace environment. Most slips are caused by wet floors, regardless of whether they have been sign-posted correctly. Many falls and trips are caused by materials and stock being left in incorrect locations.
Vibration injuries and RSI
You can develop certain injuries by working in a certain way. For example; for years, many people who used certain tools or pieces of factory machinery started to develop neurological injuries due to the constant exposure to vibration. In addition to this; many people who work in environments where the same motions are required over and over again e.g. in office environments which may require a lot of typing, end up suffering from RSI – repetitive strain injury.
This can encompass a lot of different things. For example; those who were exposed to asbestos over a long period of time may end up developing cancer symptoms. There are also a few other diseases, such as emphysema, that we may be able to provide representation for.
Can you make a claim?
You will only be able to work with Accident Advice Helpline to claim compensation for your injuries if you can prove, on the balance of probabilities, that the injuries that you ended up suffering from were caused by the negligence of another person, or the company you work for. If you are the person who caused the incident, it is unlikely that you will be able to make a claim for compensation. In addition to this, you will need to provide us with some sort of evidence that shows that you were injured. In most cases, you will need to file your claim for compensation within three years of the date of injury.
