If you have heard of the Mendip Hills in Somerset, you will probably correctly be able to guess that Mendip is in the same general area. It is actually a government district which does cover the hills as well as a portion of the Somerset Levels. Of the 112,000 or so people who live in this district, only a tiny minority have ever had good cause to consider trying to get Mendip accident at work compensation.
Accidents can happen in all kinds of places when you least expect it. Yet accidents at work can largely be prevented, just as accidents in all kinds of other locations can be too. Prevention is always going to be far more preferable to finding a cure for whatever injuries someone has suffered.
How serious can accidents at work be?
We’ve all heard of accidents in working environments that have led to fatalities or serious injuries for some of those concerned. It is a relief to know such situations are incredibly rare. However, with that said, there is also the reality of knowing people may experience more minor injuries more regularly when you take the entire country into account.
While many of those injuries will heal fully in time, they can still be upsetting, painful and difficult to cope with at the time. This is all the more real when you realise many of them – if not most of them – needn’t have happened at all. You may know from first-hand experience that an injury can have an effect on lots of other things you would normally do.
How do you know whether compensation is a possibility?
If you are to be paid compensation for an accident you suffered while at work in the last three years, you must be able to provide proof that another individual or your company or employer was negligent. This will trigger the chance to make a no win, no fee claim for Mendip accident at work compensation, if this is where you were hurt.
