If you live, work, or are on holiday in Kellington, North Yorkshire, it is entirely possible that you have had an accident which was not your fault, or suffered a work-related injury. In both these circumstances, you might have grounds to make an injury claim in Kellington.
You need to file a claim for compensation within three years of first being diagnosed with a work-related illness, or three years of the date of your accident. In both cases you will need to show that your injury or illness was caused by another person’s negligence.
Negligence on the part of an employer could mean that an employee did not receive the proper training before being asked to do a job; if that employee was subsequently injured in an accident, the employer could be seen to have been negligent. Failure to provide an employee with adequate protective clothing could also be construed as negligence on the part of an employer.
The lack of ear defenders, for example, could be a cause of industrial deafness, which happens when someone has been employed in a noisy environment over a period of years. A worker who uses high-powered drills and so on should be provided with the appropriate protective gloves. They should also stop drilling after a specified period of time so that they do not get vibration white finger (VWF).
Office workers and those who work assembling tiny components in a factory can sustain a repetitive strain injury, because employers have not strictly enforced the health and safety at work regulations, which lay down strict guidelines so that employees are not affected by this illness. Failure to comply with the regulations can endanger employees’ health.
