Worried about the cost of claiming in Newport?
You’re probably aware that during your time at work, your employer has a legal responsibility to keep you safe as you carry out your duties. This forms part of their health and safety requirements and you may hear it referred to as a Duty of Care. If you were to have an accident during your work which was not your fault, you might be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
At this stage, you might be concerned as to the cost of claiming in Newport, as are many people in your position. However, Accident Advice Helpline offers a 30-second test to establish the validity of your claim, and thereafter all matters are handled on a no-win, no-fee basis.
Compensation for burns
The more dangerous or potentially hazardous your job role, the more your employer must to do ensure your safety. Therefore, if your job involved the use of chemicals which had the potential to do you harm, your employer would have to ensure certain precautions and safety considerations were made:
- Giving you full training in the use of the material in question
- Ensuring safe and adequate storage for the chemical
- Ensuring you were given the right safety equipment and clothing with which to do your job
Were your employer to fail, and you became injured as the result, you would have the right to seek compensation.
Help with the cost of claiming in Newport
If you were to ask a doctor or nurse what’s the most common type of injury they see, they’d be unable to answer, because there is no such thing as a common injury. Depending on the severity of an accident, the health of the victim prior to their accident and the way their body reacts to trauma, one persons’ minor fall could be another persons’ permanent disability.
That’s why, when considering the cost of claiming in the wake of an accident, you really need to see someone who sees you as an individual. It is important that they consider the way your injury has affected you and impacted on your life and lifestyle.
