A work accident can happen at any place or at any time, quite suddenly and unexpectedly. It does not matter if you live in Fairlie, or in another part of Britain. If this happens to you then it could be your employer’s fault, in which case your boss should have employer’s liability insurance, for such eventualities, so it should not cost them a penny.
You should contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you in making an injury claim.
Your accident at work could have been caused by any number of reasons. For example, slipping on something, machinery that has not been maintained, or even a colleague at work simply being negligent or reckless.
There are numerous injuries that can result from these accidents. For example things like cuts and bruises to major things such as head injuries or limbs being torn off.
Whatever your accident and injuries are you may be able to make an injury claim, and using personal injury solicitors is the easiest way to do this.
Long term effects of an injury-related accident at work
The long term effects of work related injuries can change your life. If you have sustained a serious injury, you might never be able to return to work and could perhaps be reliant on others to look after you.
This can also apply to illnesses and conditions caused through your job, as it does not have to be a one off accident to make a compensation claim.
Some examples are as follows:
- the constant vibration of a piece of machinery may cause vibration white finger, an incurable condition that will cause the victim much discomfort
- constant exposure to certain dusts or chemicals that in small amounts will not affect you, but long term can cause un-repairable damage to your health
- constant twisting of your wrist that might cause repetitive strain injury or carpal tunnel syndrome
- a workstation that is too small for the work you have to do, meaning you are not able to sit properly, which might cause back damage
You may even be able to seek employee compensation if you have a pre-existing illness, which is now made worse by your current employment; it does not have to be a new illness or problem.
