Accidents at work
No matter what environment you work in or what you do for a living, you will no doubt be aware that there is always the potential for accidents. For example, if you work with sharp objects you could end up with a nasty laceration, if you work on ladders you may experience a fall, if you work with animals you could be attacked (although of course this depends on the type of animal you are working with).
If you have been injured in an accident at work then you should contact an injury solicitor in Sarre today to find out if you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Injury solicitor in Sarre
An injury solicitor in Sarre can help you make a claim for personal injury if you have been injured as a result of an accident which was not your fault.
Generally speaking, the accident must have occurred within the last three years in order for you to be able to make a claim; however, there are some exceptions to this in the case of minors who must wait until their 18th Birthday in order to make a claim on their own.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have an entire team of injury solicitors in Sarre who will be able to help you make a claim against your employer if you have been injured at work.
One type of area in which our injury solicitors in Sarre have a vast amount of experience is in helping factory workers make claims against their employers.
If you work in a factory, regardless of the type of factory and products that are being made or manufactured, then you will know that they can be potentially dangerous places.
There are a whole number of different ways in which you can be injured as a factory worker and an injury solicitor in Sarre will be able to help you with any one of them.
- Dangerous machinery – factories are invariably full of different kinds of machinery and equipment which is needed to perform various tasks. If you are injured by a piece of machinery that was defective, did not have proper safety mechanisms or was not being operated properly due to improper training, you may be able to make a claim.
- Lifting injuries – items, sometimes very heavy ones, often have to be moved around in factories. If you have been injured as a result of lifting a heavy object because you were not provided with training on proper handling techniques, or did not have the correct equipment to be able to lift a heavy item safely, then you could make a claim for compensation.
- Slips, trips and falls – these are common accidents in any environment, but the nature of factories means that there could be various spillages left uncleaned or unseen hazards from discarded waste that could cause injury.
If you think you might be able to make a claim for an injury you have suffered at work, take our 30 second test today.
