There are actually two places with the name Llanddeusant in Wales. One is on the island of Anglesey, while the other is in the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The name Llanddeusant actually means “the church of the two saints.” The two saints in question are Teilo and David, the patron saint of Wales.
If you live in either of the Llanddeusants, you may be thinking about making an injury claim in Llanddeusant because you have been injured in an accident which was no fault of your own, and you can prove this.
Injury claim in Llanddeusant
You can also make an injury claim in Llanddeusant if you have been diagnosed with an illness or occupational disease which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence. For example, if you have a work-related illness, you could possibly prove that it was caused by the negligence of your employer who had failed in their duty to provide all workers with a safe and healthy working environment.
You could make an injury claim in Llanddeusant if your employer had not given you adequate training before asking you to do a particular job. This may have been manually lifting a heavy object. If you had received little or no training in how to do this with the minimum amount of risk to your back and you were injured, then you could be entitled to compensation for this injury.
If you needed protective gear to do a particular job, such as breathing apparatus, protective clothing or ear defenders, but were not issued with these necessary items, then you could make an injury claim in Llanddeusant against your employer if the lack of these items caused your illness. However, if you were issued with these items but didn’t use them, then you would not be eligible to claim compensation.
Before any new job is undertaken, an employer must carry out a risk assessment. If this was inadequately carried out and you had an accident, you may be able to prove negligence on the part of your employer caused your accident. Employers have a duty to ensure every employee has a safe and healthy working environment, and to ensure that employees are protected as much as possible.
