East Sussex is one of several counties on the southern English coastline. Facing the English Channel, it also shares land borders with Kent, Surrey, and West Sussex. Its population reached approximately 829,000 by 2015. East Sussex no-win, no-fee compensation claims are occasionally made by residents in the area, as well as a few people who might have experienced an accident while in the area.
Few people think about making claims unless something happens to them to set them thinking along these lines. Accidents that happen at work are just one example of something that can go awry in a particular setting, which may eventually lead someone to consider making a claim. Perhaps you can identify with this. If so, we have some more information here for you that could prove to be useful and relevant.
East Sussex no-win, no-fee compensation claims stemming from work accidents
Most employees recognise their employer has a duty of care to look after them and not to put them in any potentially dangerous situations. If their work does involve risks, those risks should be reduced as much as is practically possible, to ensure the risk of injury is minimal. Most employees will go through their working lives and never be injured in any way at all, but this does not apply to everyone.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 has driven down the number of accidents that take place at work. Thankfully, far fewer people experience injuries while at work today than was ever the case in the past. However, things can and do still occur, and if they do, there is a possibility that negligence was behind them. If you have fallen ill through your work, or you have sustained an injury, it is worth finding out if that was because of negligence. It’s hard to know what to do in this situation, but do remember you have a right to claim if your employer did not adhere to their duties, and legally, your job will not be put at risk if you do.
