Clipsham is a little village set in Rutland county in the East Midlands. It lies close to the boundary of Lincolnshire. It is widely famous for its limestone quarries — some of England’s most famous buildings, including the Houses of Parliament and Windsor Castle, are built or repaired with limestone from a local quarry.
The quarry first began major distributions in 1363, and over the centuries has been a prominent employer, some of whom have even migrated here from their country of origin to provide much-needed manpower. Accident Advice Helpline can provide an injury solicitor in Clipsham with much expertise in work-related compensation claims.
Your employer by law has a duty of care to ensure your safety, and if you have injured yourself at work then it is highly likely that your employer is liable for your injuries. An employer is usually at fault if an accident occurred if we can prove that:
- The incorrect training was given;
- Safety gear such as goggles, masks, gloves or ear defenders were not provided;
- You did not receive adequate breaks;
- Your environment was not properly ventilated;
- Machinery was not to a safe standard;
- You were exposed to harmful chemicals; or
- You were worked more hours than the European rules state.
If you are unsure as to whether your employer is liable to pay you compensation, call an injury solicitor in Clipsham at Accident Advice Helpline to find out today. We offer no-obligation advice and will respond to any questions or queries you may have on the freephone number 0800 689 0500, or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993. Lines are open around the clock and there’s always a professional adviser at the end of the line. There’s never any pressure to pursue a claim — we leave the ball totally in your court.
Due to the delicate nature of the relationship between a worker and an employer, people can feel awkward or embarrassed about the claims process and for this reason may not pursue a claim for compensation. We endeavour to work in the strictest of confidence and can pursue your employer’s insurance company for your compensation, keeping as many of your details private as is possible. You are entitled by law to be compensated for accidents and injuries received in the workplace, and we work in the strictest of confidence to help you receive this.
Call our team today to get the best advice and information that applies to your case.
