In the last couple of decades, Wrexham’s economy has changed dramatically from focusing on heavier, more traditional industries to technology, services and high-tech manufacturing.
The largest town in North Wales is home to Britain’s second biggest industrial estate, and there are some big names in the area, from food firms like Kellogg’s and Cadbury to organisations including Sharp and Brother to global chemical and pharmaceutical companies.
While it’s clearly excellent that there are so many diverse jobs in Wrexham, you are just as likely to have an accident at work in the town as you are anywhere else in the UK.
If you’re unlucky enough to have this experience, you can make a personal injury claim for compensation, and doing so is a lot easier than you may have realised.
Any kind of problem can be covered – from twisted ankles to asbestosis.
To be reasonably confident of making a successful claim, you need to make sure that:
- You will be able to prove negligence on the part of your employer
- The accident needs to have happened within the last three years – or potentially longer in the case of some industrial diseases
Understandably, many people are wary of making a claim against their employer. But it’s important to remember that:
- By making your claim, you are hopefully stopping the same thing from happening to someone else
- Your employer should have insurance to cover the cost of your claim
- You cannot be sacked for making a personal injury compensation claim against your employer
