Since most of us spend more than a third of our time at work, it is of course obvious that many accidents also happen there. However, if you have been injured at work but you consider you are not to blame, you should seek legal advice and file a compensation claim in St Johns wood. Talk to us today if you’re wondering how to get legal help in St. John’s Wood.
Accidents at work are actually one of the main branches of personal injury claims, as you don’t have to be operating heavy machinery in order to get hurt. Physical injuries are as valid as psychological ones. All employers are obliged by law to provide good working conditions, which implies a good working environment from all points of view.
