Does your work place follow health and safety procedures?
The Prime Minister recently suggested that health & safety in the workplace is a ‘monster’ and that he aims to crackdown on it. Here at the Accident Advice Helpline, we along with our injury solicitor for Woodley understand how important health and safety is in our country. There was once a time when health and safety didn’t exist and people worked to survive, regardless of the consequences. For example, many people in their daily jobs are required to use heavy machinery or work in dangerous situations, if health and safety wasn’t in place, the risk wouldn’t be worth taking.
Health and safety procedures being in place in your work may help you receive more compensation when claiming for an accident. Because your place of work is supposed to provide you with a level of support in your working environment, and if this doesn’t happen, they have failed to provide you with proper health and safety, therefore the compensation pay out could be more.
You don’t need to claim within three years
The majority of compensation cases must be claimed within three years from when the accident took place. However, if you have experienced an industrial disease due to the failure of health & safety in your place of work, you are exempt from this rule. This is mainly due to the fact that some of these diseases take many years to take effect on you.
Our injury solicitor for Woodley understands that there is a list of recognised industrial diseases by the UK Government which are eligible for compensation claims. The professional injury solicitor for Woodley will be able to help you further and tell you almost instantly if your industrial disease qualifies you to claim for compensation. Of course, it is not just about disease but about injuries as well. Some claimants have been injured in the line of duty, possibly as a result of unsafe practice or negligence.
