Injury lawyers in Heston

Injury lawyers in Heston or elsewhere can help you make a claim against a person who you can prove was responsible for an illness you have been diagnosed with.

Accidents at work

If you have an accident at work, you should inform the appropriate member of staff and have him or her record the details of the accident in the accident book. If the accident was not your fault, then you would also need contact details of witnesses and their names to be logged in the book too.

You should seek immediate medical treatment even for what seems to you, at the time, to be a minor injury. Some injuries if not treated as soon as possible can be exacerbated.

Accidents at work include slips, trips and falls from heights. These are the most common types of accident as they can happen anywhere. If you slip on liquid which should have been cleaned up, then you might be able to claim that another person’s negligence was responsible for your accident, for example.

Falls from heights can be fatal and if you are working at heights, then your employer should have provided you with the appropriate protective wear and safety equipment. He or she should also have conducted a thorough risk assessment before you began working at the job. Failure to give you appropriate training could also lead to accidents and injuries and you and your injury lawyers in Heston, could be able to prove that your employer’s negligence in carrying out his or her duties led to you accident and injury.
