    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    If you are involved in an accident in which you suffer a severe finger injury, then this can be devastating and possible life changing. You may wish to make an injury compensation claim, using the solicitors in Highcliffe to help you.

    Many severe finger injuries happen in the workplace, due to the lack of health and safety practice’s in place and this is some that your boss should not allow to happen.

    Your finger injury could be your bosses fault and you may want to use the solicitors in Highcliffe

    Every employer in the UK, has a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their staff members and to make sure that their staff have a safe place to do their job.

    Your boss can inform you of the health and safety policies themselves or there could be a health and safety staff representative. You could get a written copy of the policy and your boss should explain it to you, making sure that you understand completely all the rules. 

    This is just one responsibility they could fail in, which would mean if your finger was damaged in an accident at work, his negligence would make him liable for an injury compensation claim which the solicitors in Highcliffe via Accident Advice Helpline helped you to make..

    Report any serious accidents to the HSE

    Your boss should report any serious accidents to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive).

    If you are in a serious accident and you suspect your boss has not told the HSE, then you should do it yourself.

    Unless your finger injury is severe, you may not have to report that, but the ones that should be reported are as follows:

    • Death
    • People being overcome by fumes from gasses or chemicals
    • Any other injury that stops you doing your work for more than 7 days
    • Industrial illness or disease
    • Major injuries, broken arms, legs and loss of fingers
    • Dangerous incidents like the collapse of scaffolding or a wall

    Recording accidents

    There should also be an accident book that records all accidents no matter how big or small they are. The reason for this is mainly for the staff members, in case they need a detailed record at a later date of their accidents at work, but it is also useful for the employers to see what accidents have taken place as they may be able to take further steps to prevent the same thing happening again.
