    Hurt at work in Craven

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Craven

    If you’ve ever worked in an office, you might have noticed that all the electrical equipment housed within had to be checked over every once in a while to make sure it was safe. There will be a good chance that you might have felt this was a bit of a waste of time, especially if the equipment in question was only a couple of years old. Well, the reason companies do this is to lessen the chances of an employee being injured by a faulty electrical device

    Workers who are hurt at work in Craven because of faulty electrical office equipment could find themselves in a position where hiring the services of a top 100% no win no fee* compensation law firm with a view to seeking compensation might be on the cards. Their chances of winning could be higher if it could be proved that the company they worked for had not carried out regular checks to make sure its electrical equipment was safe.

    Work-related electrical accidents and compensation if you have been hurt at work in Craven

    Picture the scene; you’ve been working hard all morning and are looking forward to your elevenses and perhaps a cheeky cigarette before getting back to work. When your break time rolls around, you make your way to the staff canteen to make yourself a nice cup of tea. You grab your mug, and pull a teabag out of the communal teabag container. You fill the kettle with just enough water for your hot beverage, not wanting to overfill it and waste electricity.

    You put the kettle down on the worktop and go to plug it in, only to get a nasty electric shock from the cable as you attempt to do so. You suffer injuries that are serious enough to warrant a trip to A&E.

    It transpires that you received nasty electrical burns and have to undergo no small amount of treatment to get rid of the scarring. It seems your injuries occurred because the kettle cable was faulty and had not been checked for some years. These sorts of circumstances could well lead to you being out in a position where claiming compensation might be an option.
