I had an accident at work, can I make a claim?
Our personal injury lawyer in Aylesford has worked on numerous cases of accidents which have occurred in the work place, so it is entirely possible to make a claim if you have suffered an injury at work.
The first thing that our personal injury lawyer in Aylesford would need to know about your situation is if there is a reasonable grounds for assuming that someone else has been responsible for the accident.
For example, let’s assume you fell down the stairs at your office. Did you fall down the stairs because your shoe laces were untied or because the flooring was uneven and caused you to trip?
If it was the former reason then no matter how good the personal injury lawyer in Aylesford is (and trust us, ours is good) they won’t be able to win any compensation on your behalf. This is because the accident would have occurred as a result of the actions you took (or in this instance didn’t take). By failing to tie up your own laces (which, has to be your responsibility) you put yourself in danger, and ultimately caused the accident.
If however the accident was caused as a result of uneven flooring, or any other maintenance issue with the stairs themselves, then a personal injury lawyer in Aylesford may be in a position to argue that your employers are responsible. This is because legally they have a duty of care to ensure that all members of staff working for them, and indeed anyone else who has legitimate reason to be in the building, are in a safe environment. This would mean performing appropriate safety checks and acting upon anything that warranted a potential hazard or danger.
Failure to do so could result in an accident, and therefore a claim for compensation being made against them.
How much could my claim be worth?
For many people, this is the most important information a personal injury lawyer in Aylesford can provide them with. Unfortunately it is not an easy question to answer. This is because there are many factors which need to be taken into account when determining how much compensation is awarded in a case.
