The commercial centre of Tyldesley town in Greater Manchester is buzzing with business, with almost 20 percent of the population working in retail and wholesale. Unfortunately, the retail industry is one in which accidents at work are extremely common, whether it’s being injured by clothes racks or slipping and falling on wet floors or being jostled by crowds.
What should you do if you experience an accident in Tyldesley?
It is the responsibility of your employer to ensure that your work environment is safe and free of hazards. If you are injured in a work accident that isn’t your fault, it may be that your employer is liable for your injuries. However, many people reject this idea, worried that an angry employer will dismiss them or their claim could get their place of business into financial difficulty.
Accident Advice Helpline want you to know that this is not true. It is illegal for your employer to dismiss you on the grounds that you brought a claim against the business. Employers also have liability insurance to cover such incidents, so you will not be hurting anyone. Why should you suffer in silence when your accident could have been easily prevented?
If you have been involved in an accident at work in the last three years that wasn’t your fault, and you reported your accident to your employer, you could be entitled to compensation with help from a solicitor in Tyldesley. Such compensation can go on to cover medical bills and loss of earnings which can greatly alleviate stress and financial strain you may have been experiencing as a result of your injury.
