The small village of Ullingswick is located in Herefordshire in England. It is a beautiful town with a stunning 13th century church. The economy of the village is almost entirely agricultural, which is a major source of employment in the town. Unfortunately, as important as agricultural work is to our economy, it can also prove to be dangerous work.
What should you do if you experience an accident in Ullingswick?
While working on a farm, there are plenty of opportunities for workplace accidents involving animals, the environment or machinery. 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 difficulties with their employer.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you. 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 relieve 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.
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. Our solicitor in Ullingswick can help you get the compensation you deserve.
