By now most people are aware that if someone else is to blame for an accident that you had, and it resulted in an injury, you can contact injury solicitors and make a claim for financial compensation. However most people would consider that they can only make a claim if they have had a slip, trip or fall when in reality you can actually make a claim for many accidents including those that have happened at your place of work.
Making a claim for compensation
You can make a claim for compensation whenever an accident that has happened that someone else is to blame for. This must have happened within the last 3 years and you must have sought medical advice and treatment for your injuries.
Accidents at work
When you are at work, your employee has a duty of care over you and should ensure that you are safe at all times. This means that they should follow health and safety guidelines and ensure they do adequate risk assessments. If you have an accident due to the fact your work place has cut corners and not ensured that you are safe then you are more than within your rights to contact an injury solicitors in Wattisfield, or ones based elsewhere, or even us here at Accident Advice Helpline, to make a claim.
Your work place also needs to ensure that when you are doing tasks you have the proper tools and equipment to do this safely and that you have had the correct training to ensure that you can use them. Your work place should be clean and uncluttered so that you are not at risk of having a slip, trip and fall due to this. When an accident has happened at work due to any of the above then you should claim compensation.
Of course it isn’t just at work that injuries happen – you could be involved in a road traffic accident, a slip or fall or even medical negligence by your doctor or health care professional. If your injury is at the hands of someone else then contacting injury solicitors in Wattisfield, or elsewhere, can help you get compensation.
