Do you work in a dangerous job?
Although many of us opt to work in relatively safe environments or heavily regulated industries, there are some job roles which carry inherent risks. If you experience an injury at work and it wasn’t your fault, your employer could be liable for your injuries and you could obtain compensation against them, regardless of the type of job that you do.
Often, people assume that you won’t be able to make a claim with a personal injury lawyer in Barnsley for a work related injury if it happened during the course of your normal role. In actual fact, a personal injury lawyer in Barnsley could help you to make a claim, even if you carry out a relatively dangerous role, such as:

However, this doesn’t mean that your employers don’t owe you a duty of care and you could still obtain compensation, with help from a personal injury lawyer in Barnsley if you’re hurt at work.

Although many people join the Armed Forces in order to protect other people, sometimes they can find themselves suffering serious injuries in their line of work.
