There are many ways in which an employee can fall victim to an accident at work. A few examples are:
- Equipment failure.
- Poor safety training.
- Exposure to hazards such as explosive materials, gases and toxic materials.
- Lifting of loads that are too heavy.
- Slipping or tripping on an unmarked hazard or obstruction.
Then there are cases of industrial disease. Workers with long exposure to loud noises may begin to suffer from deafness, or those in the construction industry may be diagnosed with asbestosis. Whatever the nature of the injury, the consequences can be severe; you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Woking for compensation.
Eligibility for an injury claim Woking
If your accident took place within the last three years, was someone else’s fault (in cases of industrial injury, this is usually another member of staff or the employer itself) and required medical attention you may be eligible to pursue a payout. It’s worth noting that in cases of industrial disease, the three-year time limit may be more flexible.
