Help is at hand with the Personal Injury Specialists
Furner’s Green is a hamlet in the civil parish of Danehill in East Sussex, England. It has a long and extensive history in the iron industry, though there is little evidence of this in the town today. There are now many light industries here, mainly in retail. A lawyer in Furner’s Green with Accident Advice Helplin are Personal Injury Specialists and we have expertise in all kinds of personal injury, including work related accidents.
Whether you work in retail, agriculture or offices you will be well aware of the health and safety standards expected today in everyone’s place of work. By law all employers and employees need to fully adhere to the standards required by the EU working laws and this is to protect all those within the workforce.
As well as the wider laws, health and safety inspectors carry out regular checks on employment establishments to investigate whether everything is as it should be. This means things like machinery being kept to a safe standard and regularly maintained, that the atmosphere is chemical free and well ventilated and that staff are fully trained to do the job they are employed for, as well as many other requirements. A lawyer in Furner’s Green works with Accident Advice Helpline and has one of the highest success rates at winning work related compensation claims in the UK.
How can I prove it was not my fault?
To find out who is at blame we need to prove that the person is not yourself. A lawyer in Furner’s Green will do this in a variety of ways. We can access CCTV footage, obtain witness statements, medical records and investigate all the health and safety standards surrounding your accident to see if anything is amiss. Things like the incorrect equipment being provided, or inadequate training being given can eliminate you from blame, as well as poor ventilation, slippery floors and many more factors.
Unless for Industrial Disease, all other accident types need to be reported within a three year period in order to be eligible for compensation.
