Each year, thousands of people are injured at work yet only a small number of these people make a claim for compensation. Some fret about the cost; others worry about damaging their relationship with their employer.
By law, all employers must abide by the health and safety regulations set out in the Health and Safety at Work Act. Some of the rules they are required to follow include:
• Supplying you with safety equipment and clothing
• Providing health and safety training
• Providing adequate instruction and supervision
• Keeping the workplace safe and any machinery well maintained
If they do not follow these regulations, and someone suffers an accident at work, they may find themselves on the receiving end of a compensation claim.
Suffered a Gedling accident at work?
If you have sustained an injury in Gedling with an accident at work, you have a right to use the Health and Safety at Work Act to show that your employer had an obligation to protect you from harm yet failed in their duty to you. At Accident Advice Helpline, we can offer you help and assistance with proving your employer’s carelessness, and we will work for you on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ basis, so you need not worry about funding your claim. As well as benefiting from our vast experience of handling Gedling based accident at work claims, we guarantee that you will receive the maximum possible compensation settlement for your injuries and financial losses.
If you were over 18 at the time of your accident, then you have three years from the date of your accident in which to get in touch and pursue your claim through us. If we have not settled your claim, or issued court proceedings, by the third anniversary of your accident, you will lose your right to receive compensation. If you were under 18 at the time of your accident, the three-year time limit starts from the date of your 18th birthday. We must therefore settle your claim, or issue court proceedings, before your 21st birthday.
