Had an accident at work? Contacting injury solicitors in Washington could help
Most people know that by contacting injury solicitors in Washington they can claim compensation for accidents and injury. What many people aren’t aware of is that these compensation claims could cover you if you have had an accident at work. Generally we assume that compensation claims cover car accidents and slips, trips and falls, but actually it covers so much more.
If you have had an accident in the past 3 years, you had to seek medical advice and someone else was at least partly to blame, then an accident injury lawyer could help you claim compensation.
Accidents at work
It goes without saying that you should be able to go to work without feeling that you risk injury by being there. An employer has a duty of care to the people it employs to make sure that they are safe and sound while they are at work – this means carrying out risk assessments and health and safety checks. If you have had an accident at work and this is because something wasn’t done to safeguard you as it should have been, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
It could be that you haven’t had the correct training to carry out a job, or that you have not been given the correct safety equipment before using a piece of equipment. It might just be that the work place is cluttered and full of trip hazards or simply that there are not the right safety procedures in place. Whatever it is, if it has been done incorrectly and has resulted in you being injured, then you could be entitled to make a claim.
It can be hard to know whether you are entitled to make a claim, which is where getting in touch with injury solicitors in Washington can help. By speaking to a firm of injury solicitors you can get help and advice on your claim and whether it is worthwhile to go ahead with a claim for compensation.
