    Accidents at work

    If you have had an accident at work then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Of course, your eligibility to make a claim with the support of Leicestershire accident claim solicitors will depend on whether or not someone else is responsible for your accident.

    It is the job of experienced Leicestershire accident claim solicitors to help establish this and make the necessary arguments in a legal manner. This is why it is often best to ensure that you get professional support when making a claim as things can get pretty complicated, pretty quickly.

    Types of accidents

    No matter where you work there are some typical accidents that everyone is at risk of. For example, slipping, tripping or falling. If you work in a warehouse or factory you may also be at risk of being injured by machinery or vehicles. No matter where you work you could be at risk of injury if you have not received suitable training to be able to perform your job properly. In some instances it may not be possible to easily determine who is liable for your accident, and this is where our Leicestershire accident claim solicitors come in.

    Our team recently helped a woman who was injured at work. She slipped on a wet piece of floor and seriously injured her back. At the time of the accident our client was at work in the local swimming pool acting as a lifeguard. When she initially complained to her manager he told her that there was no way that she would be able to make a claim for compensation against her employers because she worked in an area where water was expected. She therefore should have anticipated that there was a risk of injury and acted accordingly.

    However, our client decided to contact Accident Advice Helpline to see if our Leicestershire accident claim solicitors could make progress where she had failed to. Our team looked at the policies and procedures at the swimming centre and determined that no risk assessments had been conducted for the life guards. Non-slip matting was not present and staff were not provided with suitable shoe attire to help reduce the risk of slipping and therefore injury.

    Although it was accepted that there were risks associated with the job, our clients employers had not done enough to minimise or combat those risks. As a result our Leicestershire accident claim solicitors successfully argued that they had breached their duty of care. Consequently our client was awarded compensation for her injuries.

    Could you claim?

    Whether or not you can make a claim for compensation ultimately depends on whether someone else is likely to be regarded as being liable or not. Why not take our 30 second test today to find out if your accident qualifies you for compensation, and then give our Leicestershire accident claim solicitors a call.
