Each year Accident Advice Helpline handle hundreds of no fault injury claims in Wiltshire from people who have been hurt in incidents that were caused by someone else.
Wiltshire is a county in the South West of England, popular with all kinds of people because of its picturesque countryside. It’s also a great place to work because of the range of industries located in the area and the proximity to large cities such as Taunton, Gloucester, Bristol and Southampton.
It isn’t all beautiful scenery and perfect working conditions, however, as some of the compensation claims enquiries that we’ve received over the years have proven.
The wide range of no fault injury claims in Wiltshire
The accidents themselves vary significantly from a few cuts and bruises after a road traffic accident to broken bones in a sporting accident or serious internal injuries as a result of an accident in the workplace.
Whatever the condition might be, it is always a stressful time for the innocent victim and that’s why we try to make no fault injury claims in Wiltshire as simple as we possibly can.
If you’ve already had to spend time in hospital, that will have been difficult. Then telling your bosses just how long you’ve been signed off for can be just as hard. Especially when it might mean missing out on valuable income for the household.
The thing is, if you’ve been hurt in the workplace, whatever industry you work in, and it could have been avoided or was caused by someone else’s actions, then you may be entitled to claim for compensation.
Take a construction site as an example. These are notoriously dangerous and employees should always be provided with, and should always wear, protective and high visibility clothing to ensure that they stand out.
Despite this, someone operating a vehicle on the site might not see you behind them in the poor weather, causing a broken leg. In this instance you may be entitled to a compensation claim.
The same would be true for an office worker who spends time in front of a computer screen all day, every day. You are required to take frequent breaks from the screen to prevent damage in the eyes or repetitive strain injury from developing in the arms, wrists or back.
However, many employers encourage their staff to hit their deadlines or to work through their lunch breaks, meaning these conditions do frequently develop causing great pain and discomfort.
