    Lawyer in Corstorphine

    Lifts and escalators within the workplace or company premises can cause accidents which result in injuries. So even though they save workers from climbing stairs, they can also be dangerous.

    They are usually well-maintained to prevent accidents, but occasionally they do occur. This is why employing a lawyer in Corstorphine is so important, and you can do exactly that through Accident Advice helpline.

    Why call Accident Advice Helpline?

    Accident Advice Helpline is the first place to call when you are injured as a result of injuries that arise at the workplace which are not your fault. You will receive free advice from the trained experts who have a wide range of experience.

    It is extremely important to note that another person must be responsible for the accident or injury if your claim is to sail through.

    If you get involved in a lift and escalator accident that was not your fault and you sustain an injury you need a lawyer in Corstorphine to pursue your compensation claim for damages.

    • Whiplash caused by jerking movements when the lift goes out of control. The patient may require medical attention.
    • Psychological stress can occur due to the trauma and being stuck in the lift for hours.
    • Back injury occurs on impact of a lift that has plummeted to the ground floor suddenly.
    • Panic attacks. Anyone who has been involved in traumatic situations may suffer from panic attacks. Counselling is necessary to overcome these feelings.
    • Amputations. Workers who work with dangerous machinery, drivers of fork lift trucks and work related vehicles are prone to amputations which happen at the scene of the accident or in hospital. If the injured limb is infected, not treated in time or is severely damaged it can be amputated. This can be very devastating. Amputations can also be caused by medical negligence, misdiagnosis and surgical errors. Compensation of damages tries to help the amputee to maintain a high quality of life as much as is possible. Damages include home adaptation costs, care costs, cost of wheelchairs, clutches and prosthetic limbs, loss of earnings and medical costs.
    • Fatality. A faulty lift can go out of control and land on the ground floor suddenly most times at high speed.
