    Injury claim in Tutbury


    Making an injury claim in Tutbury

    The town of Tutbury in Staffordshire is a busy commercial centre, filled with retail outlets, restaurants and bars. Without proper care, work related accidents and injuries can occur quite easily, resulting in serious consequences for the victim. However, many people are averse to the idea of claiming for compensation due to an injury they sustained at work, as they fear repercussions from their employer.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we want people to know this is not the case. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure you and fellow employees have a safe work environment. If you have suffered an injury at work that wasn’t your fault, making an injury claim can not only alleviate your financial concerns and offer you much needed compensation for your ailments, but it can also prevent further accidents from occurring in the workplace. Injuries that can occur in the workplace include but are not limited to the following:

    • Sprains
    • Muscle strains
    • Broken bones
    • Burns
    • Back ailments

    All of these injuries and more affect your ability to work and can often lead to a loss of earnings, putting you out of pocket. Aside from this, mounting expenses such as medical bills, child care costs and perhaps even home care costs all add up, putting you in a difficult situation financially, adding to your stress and making it more difficult for you to recover.

    Your employer should have measures put in place to ensure your safety, but often such measures are not updated or are not good enough to begin with. Your employer is responsible for looking after you whilst you are at work, and if they fail you in this way due to poorly maintained equipment, lack of efficient training or a hazardous work environment, then you may be entitled to compensation.
