If you’ve been hurt or suffered an injury, you may be trying to find out if you’re eligible to make a compensation claim. If the injury you sustained wasn’t your fault then there’s a good chance that you could successfully obtain compensation by making a compensation claim in Torpoint.
Although the injury often has to be caused by someone or something else in order to make a claim, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they intended to hurt you or even wanted to cause you any harm. One of the most common type of compensation claims are from claimants who have been injured at work.
Due to the sheer volume of health and safety legislation which applies to employers, they can often be liable when employees suffer injuries. Unsafe workplaces, lack of equipment or failure to make appropriate amendments to the workplace can result in liability if an employee is hurt.
If you’ve been hurt at work and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim in Torpoint and obtain compensation for the harm you suffered. Similarly, if you were hurt whilst visiting someone else’s business or property, you could make a compensation claim.
In addition to being liable for injuries which employees sustained, businesses are often responsible for injuries which occur to patrons or customers visiting their premises. If you enter a shop or place of business and suffer an injury which wasn’t your fault, you could make a compensation claim.
Even walking on a public street or highway can sometimes result in injuries. If public areas aren’t kept safe or maintained properly, members of the public can be at risk of harm. If, for example, you’re hurt as a result of poor signage or uneven pavement slabs, you could make a compensation claim.
Often the company or organisation responsible for maintaining the area, will be liable for injuries which occur on their premises, providing the injuries weren’t the claimants own fault.
