Erewash is one of several boroughs in Derbyshire. The population numbers around 114,000, and some of those people actually work in the area as well. There are many towns to be found in the borough, and while some people work locally others may travel to other parts of the borough to work each day. Erewash accident at work compensation has been paid in the past to people who have been injured at work. However, it is thankfully something of a rarity.
You might wonder why it is rare. Is it because compensation is very difficult to claim for after an accident at work, or because accidents of this nature are uncommon? Fortunately, it is the latter. Thanks to the Health and Safety at Work Act that was brought in several decades ago, the instances of accidents in all kinds of workplaces have dropped considerably.
How do you know if you are entitled to try and claim?
You may well have heard of a no win, no fee claim. This is a type of claim that means the claimant is under no financial pressure. If they lose, they would not have any solicitors’ fees to pay afterwards. This brings peace of mind and enables someone to claim when they perhaps would not otherwise have done so.
If you speak to a lawyer who deals with accidents at work and related compensation claims, they will determine whether you have a chance to claim compensation. To do this, the issue of negligence will be looked at very closely indeed. If the employer concerned was negligent, the claimant does stand a good chance that a sum of compensation would be paid to them for their injuries.
