- Assaults – if you have been assaulted at work and it can be shown that poor work practices such as short staffing, or lack of training and personal protection equipment led to your injuries, then a no win no fee* compensation in East Northamptonshire claim can be made.
- Dangerous machinery – all machinery and equipment should be tested, inspected and maintained on a regular basis. All staff using these machines should also receive thorough training on how to operate them safely. If this is not done and an accident occurs, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
- Falls from height – depending on the nature of your job you may be required to work from height as part of your day to day routine. If this is the case then you should be provided with the appropriate equipment to do this safely, as well as any additional support that might be needed.
- Slips and trips – these sorts of accidents can occur anywhere, including at the work place or in public places. If poor housekeeping standards mean you have slipped over on a wet floor, or have tripped over an unmarked hazard, you could make a claim.
