Injured in your job?
Although accidents can (and invariably do) occur anywhere, one of the most common calls we get from clients are those involving injury sustained from work.
Our solicitors know that it doesn’t really matter where you work, whether it be in a shop, an office, a garage or a factory, there is always the potential for accidents and therefore for you to be injured in your job.
Therefore, if you have been unfortunate enough to suffer an injury sustained from work you can rest assured that our solicitors will be on hand and able to provide you with all the information and support you need to progress your claim.
Types of accidents
As we’ve already mentioned if you have suffered an injury sustained from work then there are a wide number of ways in which this injury might have occurred.
Here are some details of some of the cases that our solicitor have worked on over the past year.
Fall from height – one client suffered an injury sustained from work after he fell from a ladder. He had been provided the ladder by his employer, but unfortunately it was unfit for purpose, slipping whilst he was in the middle of using it. The fall meant that he landed heavily on the ground and dislocated his shoulder, as well as fracturing his wrist. He spent considerable time away from work, a period which resulted in him not receiving any income. Our solicitors helped him get compensation for both the injury sustained from work and loss of earnings caused as a result.
Injury from broken machinery – another client had an injury sustained from work after she cut her hand on a broken piece of machinery. The machine had been inspected recently and the fault was recorded; however, improper reporting policies meant that the machine had not been fixed, not labelled as unsafe. Our client therefore had no idea of the potential for danger as she used it. We helped her win the compensation she deserved.
