If you have had an accident at work which you believe was the fault of your employer, North Tyneside expert legal help may be able to support you with a claim for compensation against them. All you need is proof that you have suffered an accident and that it was your employer’s fault rather than any fault of your own, and an injury lawyer should be more than happy to process a claim on your behalf.
The reason that many people do not go ahead with a compensation claim after an accident is because they are not sure whether or not they can claim for their type of accident, and are worried about the process being long or complicated. Here are some of the types of claims that you can make, as well as how to claim.
Slips, trips and falls
This is one of the most common types of accidents that you can claim for, and is fairly easily proven as well. A slip, trip or fall will be considered to be the fault of your employer if they have not taken the proper precautions to keep employees safe in the workplace. This could relate to wet floors which haven’t been immediately cleared up or signposted, cracked and broken flooring, or uneven flooring without proper signage.
Long term illnesses
You can also claim compensation from your employer if you are suffering from a long term illness which was caused by your workplace. This could include something like asbestosis from working with asbestos without proper protection, long term hearing damage from loud environments and so on, all of which they should endeavour to prevent.
Manual handling injuries
These are generally caused by doing heavy lifting without the proper safety equipment, training or help, and are most common with more physical jobs.
