High Peak ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors
Whenever you go to work, and whatever your job role might be, you have the right to be safe whilst you work.
You have the most responsibility for your own health and safety and under the Health and Safety at Work Act, you have to ensure that you work in a way that keeps you and others safe. However, your employer also has a huge responsibility too.
Should they fail in this responsibility and you sustain an injury as a result, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation through High Peak no win no fee* solicitors.
Skin Damage and Burns
By their responsibility towards you, your employer has to take any and all steps to ensure that as you go about your working duties, you are safe. As part of this, they must ensure that all premises and equipment are safe and well maintained, all risks accounted for and extra measures taken if required and they must ensure that all staff are working within the confines of the law with regards to their own safety and that of their colleagues.
Should the employer fail to do so, one or more of his employees could sustain a serious injury and if this is the case, High Peak ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors could seek compensation for the loss and damage suffered.
For example, if you work with chemicals or other potentially damaging substances, your employer will need to ensure you are safe whilst doing so. He will need to ensure that you have the correct safety clothing and (if necessary) breathing equipment, he will need to ensure that the chemicals are correctly stored and are being used as they should and he will need to make sure that you receive all necessary training to ensure you can carry out your work safely. Should he fail to do so, High Peak no win no fee* compensation claims may be an option for you.
Chemical burns could leave you in agonising pain and needing long term treatment such as skin grafts, painkillers and physical therapy as well as potentially leaving you having to either take time away from work to recuperate or needing to change jobs or stop work altogether to allow for your injuries and any permanent damage they have caused.
For that reason, compensation as claimed through High Peak ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors could be the solution you and your family need to ensure that you don’t have any financial losses as well as the pain and suffering you have endured as the result of a situation you did not cause.
