Injured at work? Speak to a personal injury lawyer in Newton Abbot to get your claim underway
Accidents can happen anywhere, often when you least expect them to occur. We always assume that an accident will happen to someone else and not affect ourselves or our loved ones. Unfortunately though, we can sometimes find ourselves injured through no fault of our own, but through the fault of someone else’s negligence.
We spend a large proportion of our lives working — in offices, workshops, construction sites, industrial estates and other public places. If you have become injured as the result of a workplace-related accident that wasn’t your fault within the last three years, then you may be able to pursue a legal claim for compensation.
