A health and safety officer is usually appointed to every workplace to ensure that the employees are well taken care of and that no accidents happen on site. Sadly, sometimes accidents happen anyway and this means injuries. But for an employee who has been injured in the workplace, claiming for their injury is sometimes a difficult decision, since they do not want to cause any friction with their employers. They need to know however, that they have a right to make an injury claim in Hinxworth.
An injury claim for a workplace accident should be a matter of course, but in some cases, an employee is unsure as to what constitutes an accident that was their fault and one that is the fault of someone else. However, this does not need to be a consideration they have by themselves.

What health and safety injury claim Hinxworth could you claim for?
So of all the things that could go wrong in the workplace, what could you claim for?
- Other workers’ negligence – typically, workplace pranks go wrong and when this happens, someone inevitably gets hurt. Through the negligence of other workers, an employee may find that they fall, get hit on the head or other part of their body and suffer some kind of injury. You need to know that no matter how large or small the injury is, you can claim.
- Company negligence – if the company you work for is using old and out of date equipment and something goes wrong, such as if a printer malfunctions and electrocutes you, you may have an injury claim in Hinxworth.
- Building injuries – imagine what might happen to you if a piece of scaffolding falls on you? Though the injury it causes is unintentional, it may lead to pain and suffering on your part or even the inability to return to work. This is something that is not your fault and cannot be predicted but it will still affect you on a very personal level. If this is the case, you should contact someone you trust to determine whether or not you have a claim.
An injury claim in Hinxworth is often born out of an injury that has affected a person without their culpability. This means that they had no say in what was happening and were not responsible for what went wrong, but were still injured. If this is the case, know that Accident Advice Helpline is waiting to help you find out if you are due any compensation.
