If you need personal injury advice in Redditch in order to help you to ascertain whether or not you have a valid claim for injury compensation, you should be talking to our customer support team here at Accident Advice Helpline. With over 15 years’ in the injury claim industry, few people know more than we do about the compensation claim process, especially when it comes down to injuries in the workplace.
Injuries caused by hazardous substances in the workplace
Hazardous substances in the workplace can cause some lasting injuries. That’s why the Care of Substances Hazardous to Health (C.O.S.H.H) regulations were formulated. All substances used in the workplace should be subject to control under the C.O.S.H.H. protocols. In addition, any employees who are expected to work with, or come into contact with these hazardous materials, should have access to all of the C.O.S.H.H. datasheets. More than just having access to this information, applicable employees should be made to read and understand the datasheets, and should sign to that effect.
Obtaining the best personal injury advice in Redditch
If you’ve been injured in the workplace due to exposure to a hazardous substance, and you believe your employer to be at fault in some way, you can get the best personal injury advice in Redditch, by referring to us here at Accident Advice Helpline. If, having consulted with our customer support team, it appears that you do have a valid claim, we can help you to launch a personal injury claim seeking appropriate financial compensation.
The basic rules in terms of qualifying any personal injury claim are very straightforward. The blame for the accident or incident should be attributable to a third party; someone other than the injury victim. The incident or injury needs to have taken place within the past three years, and the injury itself should have warranted medical attention. These are the basic prerequisites of any personal injury claim, whether it’s in terms of exposure to a hazardous substance, or something like a slip, trip or fall accident/injury.
You can get a basic idea about whether or not you have a valid claim and how much that claim could be worth by using the HOW MUCH compensation calculator. This can be found here on our website and is known as our 30-second test. This test (which anyone can take free of charge and under no obligation) will indicate whether or not you have a valid claim in principle. In addition, it will then estimate its value. It’s a fast and convenient way of establishing a potential claim (in theory) without having to talk to anybody.
