Injury solicitor in Carlisle


If you have just suffered an accident in a workplace in the Carlisle area then you do not really have the option of just forgetting about it. You may wish to start a personal injury claim yourself and you may also have to become involved in the legal reporting procedures that are governed by the UK health and safety legislation.

At the scene of the accident the priority has to be ensuring that no-one else gets hurt. If there has been an electrocution, a chemical spill or a collapse of a building or trench then it is very probable that the risks still exist. It may not be possible to make the area safe straight away and so other workers will have to be prevented from entering the area. The second priority is then to summon emergency medical assistance for everyone who needs it.

Personal injury solicitor in Carlisle – accident at work procedures

Accidents at work are important. They should not be hidden or brushed under the carpet. The information gained from accidents plays an important role in keeping workplaces safe for other workers in the future. For this reason there is a legal reporting system for accidents at work.

At the very least, the accident should be reported within the organisation and may need to be entered into an Accident Book. This information can be fed into future risk assessments and can help to identify procedures that need to be improved.

More serious accidents will have to be reported to the regulatory authorities. The information may simply be recorded or there may be an investigation and possible legal action if any laws have been broken. Employers have been charged with criminal offences after accidents at work but this procedure is entirely separate from the legal work carried out by a personal injury solicitor in Carlisle.

In addition to the criminal legal action, some workers choose to start a personal injury claim. Workers who have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault can follow this procedure.

The claim starts when the injured person contacts Accident Advice Helpline because they need a personal injury solicitor in Carlisle. This legal firm will co-ordinate the rest of the process on their behalf. At the start of the procedure Accident Advice Helpline confirms that there are grounds for a claim by checking some basic details about the claim.
