    Injury claims solicitor in Leek

    In need of an experienced injury claims solicitor in Leek?

    Accident Advice Helpline deals with compensation claims for injuries and accidents suffered in Leek and the surrounding area. Some accidents happen when people are at work and workers contact Accident Advice Helpline because they believe the accident was caused by someone else. This is often their employer and compensation claims can be paid out of an employer’s liability insurance policy. Here are some work injury case studies that illustrate a range of workplace hazards in Leek and other areas.

    Protective clothing

    Mr G worked in a butchery department in a meat producer. One of his work tasks was to use a very sharp knife to prepare joints of meat. He did this by removing meat from the bones and cutting it into portions for sale. One afternoon he had an accident – he cut his arm badly with the meat knife and had to be taken to the local Accident and Emergency Department. He lost a lot of blood and required major surgery to repair the tendons and nerves in his forearm. It took many weeks of intensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy rehabilitation to get the full use of his arm and hand back. He finally contacted Accident Advice Helpline because he believed that the accident was not his own fault and that it was the fault of his employer. He thought that he may be able to start an occupational injury case because he had not been provided with any protective clothing. He found some health and safety information that suggested that a chainmail gauntlet reaching to his elbow would have been the best way of protecting his arm. The personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline helped him secure a great compensation payout for his workplace injury in Leek.

    Dangerous chemicals

    Miss F worked in a chemical laboratory. One morning she was asked to mix some chemicals together but unfortunately the mixture exploded violently and she was sprayed with a dangerous chemical cocktail. She suffered serious burns to the skin on her face and hands. This required many months of healing and rehabilitation. Miss F contacted Accident Advice Helpline because she suspected that her employer was at fault for her accident and that she could start an occupational injury claim. Her employer had not carried out any risk assessments at all on this type of work; it was the first time that it had been attempted in the laboratory. Miss F did not have to pay a large upfront sum to access an expert workplace injury solicitor; her claim was on a no win no fee basis. Miss F was awarded an impressive level of compensation for her injuries.
