About electric shock accident at work compensation
An electric shock can lead to devastating consequences.
Many injuries can arise in the wake of being electrocuted, while more serious shocks can lead to death. Even coming into contact with a low voltage can mean sustaining burns and other serious injuries.
There are some workplaces in which employees are at higher risk of suffering an electrical shock, such as in construction or renovation sites, but this sort of accident can happen any place and any time if the right precautions have not been taken. If you have suffered an electric shock at work, you could potentially be within your rights to claim West Lothian accident at work compensation.
Provided your accident occurred within the past three years, you could be within your rights depending on the circumstances to make a successful claim with help from Accident Advice Helpline.
What are my rights for claiming compensation for injury in West Lothian?
The first step in determining whether you are able to claim compensation is determining who was at fault.
Your employer has a responsibility to ensure the conditions in the workplace are safe, all employees have adequate training as well as the right PPE issued to reduce the risk of injuries. When employers fail to live up to these responsibilities, innocent workers are left to pay the price.
If you have had an accident at work that has resulted in electrical shock, you could claim a substantial sum in compensation if you believe your employer to be to blame. You can see how much you may be entitled to with our online claims calculator, which will provide you with an estimate in just thirty seconds.
