If you work in the nuclear power industry and you’ve been injured in the workplace and someone else is to blame, the solicitors in Leiston may be able to help you to obtain financial compensation from your employer.
Visions of nuclear meltdown
When people talk about the nuclear industry and accidents in the same sentence, the imagination jumps ahead, creating scenarios of flashing warning lights, sirens screaming out a warning, and Geiger counters clicking loudly like the continuous amplified buzzing of an angry bee, with the second’s counting down towards radioactive meltdown, and nuclear explosion.
Everyday, humdrum accidents happen in the nuclear industry too
Of course, it can happen; remember Chernobyl? It’s not something we like to countenance happening in the UK, it’s why the ONR (Office for Nuclear Registration) was formed; to be responsible for regulating health and safety at the U.K.’s nuclear sites. Assuming they can keep the unimaginable from happening, it still leaves the reality of ordinary everyday accidents like slips, trips and falls, and musculoskeletal injuries that can happen in the nuclear industry as easily as in any other.
Workers in the nuclear industry have the same rights as workers in any other industry
If you work on one of the U.K.’s nuclear sites and are injured in the workplace through no fault of your own, you’ve exactly the same right to receive financial compensation, as any other worker, in any other industry.
