You may have been to Grizebeck to take part in the hill climb, rated as moderate, or you may have simply wanted to escape from the rat race and rented a cottage there. You may live and work in Grizebeck, and there could be any number of reasons why you believe you have grounds to make an injury claim in Grizebeck.
Injury claim in Grizebeck
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, you may have grounds to make a personal injury claim in Grizebeck. You can also claim for an illness for which another person is responsible. Examples of this would be a work-related illness or occupational disease for which your employer is responsible, or food poisoning after eating out at a restaurant or cafe.
Accidents at work
If you have an accident at work, it should be reported and logged in your workplace’s accident book. Names and contact details of any witnesses should be detailed, along with the date, time and nature of the accident. This should then be reported to your employer and to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). You should seek immediate medical treatment, even if your injury seems slight. Sometimes injuries can become worse over time if they are not treated very soon after the accident in question.
Your accident might have been caused because of an obstacle which was not in its correct place, or because you were manually lifting a heavy object. The accident could have been caused by a falling object, perhaps on a construction site. It could have been caused because you were using a piece of machinery that you had not been trained to use. If your employer had not trained you to do a specific job, but you were expected to do it, they would be guilty of negligence. If the accident was caused by a falling object, it could be that your employer had failed to carry out a full risk assessment before work began. They would be negligent, as employers have a duty to ensure the health and safety of their employees and members of the public who visit the premises.
