Football, cricket and softball are some of the most popular sports in Chichester. The region is also known to have an excellent network of roads and railway links, as well. It is also a centre of employment for the surrounding area.
Some of the most common accidents in the workplace in Chichester include the following:
- Electrical hazards
- Slips, trips and falls
- Back sprains
One may sustain such injuries because of faulty appliances, poorly constructed stair cases and bad lifting practices. If your workplace accident has caused an injury and it was your employer’s fault, you may be able to file a claim against your employers.
How do you know if you have a claim?
You can only determine the validity of your claim by getting in touch with a personal injury law firm like us here at Accident Advice Helpline. Some claimants might have some knowledge or experience with the legal system, but it is always best to consult a solicitor who has dealt before with cases involving common accidents in the workplace in Chichester before.
He or she will have a look at various factors surrounding your case and provide you with advice, according to your situation.
However, in order to improve your chances of winning your claim, you need to be open and honest with your solicitor, too.
What if your employer wants to settle?
Workplace accidents can be caused by an employer failing to carry out a risk assessment. This is a vital part of health and safety in every workplace. Your employer should assess the hazards that you are exposed to and the risk that those hazards will cause an injury. Then they should put procedures in place to protect you.
If this has not been done, and you have been hurt as a result, you may want to start a personal injury claim for compensation and we can help with that.
