Uddington is a popular town with plenty of retail and hospitality work available. Sadly, due to this there is also potential for plenty of accidents in these environments as well. Without proper safety measures put in place, work related accidents and injuries can occur quite easily, resulting in serious consequences for the victim. However, many people are opposed to the idea of claiming for compensation due to an injury they sustained at work, as they fear ramifications from their employer.
What should you do if you experience an accident in Uddington?
If you experience an accident in Uddington, the Accident Advice Helpline is here to help. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure you and fellow employees have a safe work environment. If you have suffered an injury at work that wasn’t your fault, our solicitors can not only work to alleviate your financial concerns and offer you much needed compensation for your injuries, but your claim can also prevent further accidents from occurring in the workplace to other people.
Injuries that can occur in the workplace include but are not limited to the following:
- Muscle strains
- Broken bones
- Back ailments
The compensation you could receive can cover not only payment for your injuries but also cover the cost of medical bills, child care costs and even home care costs, helping to reduce your stress and aid you on the road to recovery.
Your employer is legally obligated to have measures put in place to ensure your safety, but often such measures are not updated or are not good enough to begin with. Your employer is responsible for looking after you while you are at work, and if they fail you in this way due to poorly maintained equipment, lack of efficient training or a hazardous work environment, then you may be entitled to compensation. An Accident Advice Helpline solicitor in Uddington can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
