Accidents at work
Some of us are fortunate to love our jobs. Others of us are perhaps a little less lucky. We drag ourselves out of bed in the morning, commute in to the office and spend the next few hours of our day getting on with the daily grind.
We accept that this is part of life, and what needs to be done in order to get the bills paid. We don’t accept is that by turning up at work on a Monday morning (or any other day of the week for that matter) that you could be putting yourself at risk of harm.
Unfortunately though that is the case for many people each day of the year. Every year thousands of employees are injured as they go about their daily work based duties. If you are one of them and think that the accident you have been involved in was not your fault then Accident Advice Helpline and our team of East Hampshire accident claim solicitors might be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Why can you claim?
If you have been injured as a result of an accident caused by someone else then you have a legal right to make a claim for compensation and our East Hampshire accident claim solicitors can help. If your accident occurred at work then there is a good chance that your employer is likely to be found liable, especially if they did not do something they should have to ensure your safety.
It may be that they did not make sure that the work environment was safe or hazard free. Perhaps they did not offer you the necessary training to prevent harm from happening, or give you the correct or adequate equipment or protection.
Whatever the situation, if you have been injured at work our East Hampshire accident claim solicitors will look at the details of your case and determine whether or not you are likely to be entitled to make a claim.
Find out if you can claim
One of the easiest ways to find out whether or not you can make a claim is to take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test. This will not only confirm if our East Hampshire accident claim solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation, but will also give you an indication as to how much compensation they will hope to retrieve for you.
How our East Hampshire accident claim solicitors will help
Our East Hampshire accident claim solicitors will review the details of your case and establish what laws, guidelines, regulations or policies have been breached within the work place which ultimately led to your accident. They will then be able to argue that your employer is liable for your accident, which in turn will secure you right to compensation.
