    Accidents at work

    Accident Advice Helpline has over 13 years’ experience in working with victims of accidents that weren’t their fault to help them make a claim for the injuries they have suffered.

    On our website we also offer a 30 second test which can tell you whether you have a valid claim and how much your claim could be worth. Your expert injury lawyers in Chesterton will be able to give you a much better idea of how much your claim might be worth once they have been provided with all of the details of your case. They can take into account the seriousness of your injury, the amount of time the medical expert thinks it will take to fully recover, psychological damages as well as out of pocket expenses including loss of earnings and charges for prescriptions or medical treatment.

    Unfortunately, work-based accidents are all too common and your expert injury lawyers in Chesterton will know that because there are many different jobs and many different settings in which these jobs are performed, there are a large variety of potential accidents and incidents:

    • Slips and falls
    • Burns or scalds
    • Cuts and lacerations
    • Neck and spinal or back injuries
    • Broken bones

    Any person running a business with employees has a duty of care to ensure the safety and security of their staff at all times. This duty of care is ratified by The Health and Safety Act 1974, and under these rules the employer has to:

    • Take any and all reasonable steps to protect the health, safety and welfare of all employees and visitors to the premises.
    • Control any risks which may exist.
    • Carry out risk assessments.
    • Provide information to all employees on the risks which exist.
    • Ensure regular training of employees in health and safety measures.

    If you have suffered a work-based injury, you may find that you need medical assistance, time away from work to recover and even long term help and support to help you manage your injuries and any long term effects they might have had. Your expert injury lawyers in Chesterton can help you assess what is needed and start progressing with your claim immediately. They will be there to answer any questions or concerns you have regarding your compensation claim.

    If your expert injury lawyers in Chesterton establish that the cause of your accident lies with your employer because they have been negligent, careless or have fundamentally failed in their legal duty of care then you have an automatic right to make a claim for compensation.

    Your expert injury lawyers in Chesterton will explain that this right ensures that you cannot be penalised or punished by your employer for making a claim against them.  Many people worry that if they do decide to make a claim against their employer, that they will be ostracised by other members of the work place, or even sacked. This is not the case.  Your employer will not be directly paying for your compensation as they will have insurance which will cover the cost of this.
