The village of Piercebridge-on-Tees is located in the county of Durham, just west of Darlington. This tiny village had a population of just 113 people in 2011, and it’s best known for its excavated Roman Fort, which is open to members of the public. Due to its rural location, finding injury solicitors in Piercebridge-on-Tees may be no easy feat, which is why nationwide firms such as Accident Advice Helpline may be a more sensible option. Because there’s a three-year time limit in place for personal injury claims, it’s important not to waste too much time.
If you’ve been injured at work, you could sustain a range of injuries, from minor to serious. Here are a few examples of the types of claims we have handled before:
- Slips and trips – for example tripping over a box of files or slipping on a wet floor
- Electric shock from a faulty photocopier or computer
- Scalds or burns from a faulty kettle or somebody spilling a hot drink on you
- Falling from height – often caused by a faulty stepladder or climbing on chairs
- Repetitive strain injuries from workstations not being properly set up
It’s up to your employer to ensure you are safe at work – and whilst you may think working in an office is hardly the most dangerous job, as you can see there are still hazards which could cause an accident if you are not careful.
When it comes to your working environment, it’s your employer’s responsibility to ensure it is tidy and safe, which includes maintaining equipment to make sure it’s safe to use. If they haven’t done this and you’re injured, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation. Because it might be hard to find experienced expert injury solicitors in Piercebridge-on-Tees, you can call Accident Advice Helpline for advice and assistance with your claim.
