Everyone remembers learning about the Battle of Hastings at school. Today’s Hastings is very different from the battleground that existed back in 1066 – probably one of the only historic dates most of us will remember! It’s in East Sussex and today has a population of about 90,000 people. The good news is the area is much safer than it was back in 1066, giving little reason for anyone to go looking for Hastings accident claim solicitors.
With that said, accident claims can potentially be put in through official channels in any location, if the situation exists to warrant it. Every day, there are a few people who find themselves with sudden injuries that could potentially have been avoided – both at work and in a myriad of other locations.
Work-based injuries and accidents
We should point out that work-based injuries are very rare and are usually prevented by way of appropriate health and safety measures. Risk assessments are required to make sure this is the case, so very few people ever suffer injuries as a result.
However, if something did happen, it might have profound effects on those concerned. For example, someone might be injured if safety guards were taken off machinery and not replaced, or if they were not present in the first place. These kinds of guards are usually provided to make sure hair, hands and other parts of the body cannot be caught and dragged into the workings of the machinery.
