With talk surrounding the possible inclusion of new measures to help people who are off sick for a prolonged period of time, what’s being done to help people claim the compensation to which they’re entitled? Here we’ll look at how you can go about claiming for an injury in the workplace and where you can find injury solicitors in Worsley who can help you make a good case.
Finding injury solicitors in Worsley
If you’re forced off work for a period of time the effects can be severe. Not only is there the loss of income to think about, but also the reduced mobility and lack of independence that it brings. It could be a blow to your confidence so you’ll naturally want a little leg up to help you get back on the wagon. Compensation can help you do that – but how do you know whether or not you’re entitled to make a claim?
Under UK law any employer is required to make all reasonable measures to provide a safe and secure environment for the people who work for them. That means working hard to ensure that obvious risks are dealt with and there are no tricky walkways which could lead to nasty accidents.
If you’ve been injured then the most important question is – was there anything that your employer failed to do that could have prevented it?
This applies to one off accidents such as a fall, but they can equally relate to ongoing conditions such as repetitive strain injury or industrial deafness which is common in factories which use loud machinery for prolonged periods of time.
Sometimes there is an obvious fault on the part of the employer, but on other occasions it may be less easy to see. That’s why it’s worth contacting our team at Accident Advice Helpline.
