When someone who was injured in an accident at work and they want to make an East Lindsey accident at work claim, there are usually several questions they want answered before they start their claim.
Can anyone make an East Lindsey accident at work claim?
British law states that you can make an East Lindsey accident at work claim if:
- The accident you were in was the fault of someone else
- You sustained injuries in the accident
- The injuries were bad enough to need medical treatment
- The accident happened no more than three years ago
These rules apply to all personal injury claims, not just an East Lindsey accident at work claim.
What other accidents can claims be made for?
If they fit the above rules, all accidents come with the realms of personal injury claims, just a few examples being:
- Road traffic accidents
- Slips, trips and falls
- Holiday accidents
- Industrial illnesses
- Animal attacks
- Accidents in schools
There are no end to the accidents that can happen, and over 3 million of them occur every year in the UK.
What injuries are considered severe enough to make an East Lindsey accident at work claim?
The list of injuries that can happen at work is almost endless but here are just a few of them:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash
- Injuries to the head or brain
- Bones being broken
- Burns and scalds, some of them being chemical burns
- Facial injuries
- Post traumatic stress disorder, and other mental injuries
- Lost limbs or digits can have a devastating effect on the victims lives
- Back and spinal injuries
Some of these injuries will change the life of the victims forever, and can mean that they are no longer able to care for themselves. This has an affect on their families and those close to them as well, all because someone else did not take enough care.
