Finding a personal injury lawyer in North Scarle for workplace injuries at Accident Advice Helpline
A personal injury lawyer in North Scarle won’t be asked to process claims against the local egg packing plant in the future, as they’ve announced the plant is to be shut down along with another plant up in Scotland. Production is being relocated to Oxfordshire. Staff at both of the closing plants are to be made redundant.
The news is a shock. The plant was one of the few employment opportunities near the village. Those being made redundant are going to have to look further afield for new work, and with the economy still not fully recovered finding new jobs is not going to be an easy task.
The dangers of working at a zoo is something of which a personal injury lawyer in North Scarle will be aware
Thankfully, the village is only eight miles outside of the city of Lincoln, where most people will do their job hunting. At least the traveling won’t be too onerous. Tourism is an important player in Lincoln’s economy. The medieval old town, the Roman legacy and the zoo are all important contributors. But if villagers gain employment at a zoo, they’ll need to be aware of the dangers of zoonotic infections. It’s something that a personal injury lawyer in North Scarle at Accident Advice Helpline will know all about.
The dangers of zoonotic infections
Zoonotic infections are diseases that vertebrate animals can pass onto humans. This can happen through physical contact with the beasts themselves, or with their waste products. It’s something of which a zoo’s management must make their employees aware in order to fully discharge their duty of care to them.
Of course, it’s not only zoos that have this particular hazard. Any establishments that have animals on their grounds also carry the same risks — establishment like farms and abattoirs, for example. In order for a worker to be within their rights to launch a claim for compensation, the following considerations must be reviewed:
- Is the infection the fault of the employer?
- Is the illness serious?
- Has the victim been medically diagnosed with a zoonotic infection?
- Has the infection manifested itself in the past three years?
If the answer to all four questions is yes, then the victim may be legally and morally entitled to sue for compensation.
