Expert solicitor in Forfar
You may be wondering what type of work place accidents we have helped with. The simple answer is every type you can possibly imagine. Below are the most common accidents in the workplace and the most common claims seen by an expert solicitor in Forfar who handles personal injury compensation claims:
1. Slips, trips, and falls. These can cause a number of injuries, some short term, but others more long term resulting in extended periods of time off work, and loss of earnings.
2. Burns. Most commonly due to chemicals that may be in industrial or manufacturing areas and workplaces, or sometimes in a canteen or staff kitchen.
3. Back/Neck. Muscle strains or injuries are common in almost many work setting, and usually due to poor health and safety policy, procedures, and training from the employer.
4. RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). RSI (known as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) can become a very serious affliction. Again, usually due to poor health and safety policy, procedures, and training from the employer.
5. Cuts. The key to preventing these is down to the employer providing proper and adequate training on all types of equipment.
6. Hearing Loss. Ear protection should be provided as standard to all employees who may be at risk from this.
