Many of us work in the manufacturing industry which brings us into contact with highly dangerous, sharp cutting implements. As a result of this, there are a significant number of individuals annually who suffer injuries which either impair their ability to do their job or prevent them from working altogether.
Cuts and Lacerations? Our Solicitors in Peterculter can help you
At Accident Advice Helpline, our solicitors in Peterculter deal with individuals who have suffered injuries that have either led to his or her not being able to work for long periods or not being able to work at all. With this in mind present or previous employers should have procedures and measures in place to ensure the proper use of machinery which might lead to such injuries.
