100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors in Sindlesham
Have you suffered burns in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Have you received medical treatment for your injuries within the last three years? If you have been able to answer yes to these questions, then you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim with the help of Accident Advice Helpline and our 100% ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors in Sindlesham.
As a burn victim, your injuries may be such that they were sustained in the workplace as the result of another person’s negligence. In the United Kingdom, there are many types of business that require the use of chemicals and solvents, most of which can cause serious burns if they are misused.
Working in an environment where such chemicals and solvents are in everyday use, it is important that health and safety procedures and equipment are in place; along with the correct level of first aid care. Without such protocols and training, the injuries sustained through the misuse of these substances are likely to be much more severe.
As the injured party in a chemical burn accident at work, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim. Accident Advice Helpline and our in-house ‘no win, no fee’ solicitors in Sindlesham are here to help.
My injuries were the result of poor health and safety
The victims of chemical and solvent burns in the workplace should expect to have first aid treatment as soon as it becomes clear an accident has occurred. Failing to provide correct first aid cover in the workplace, is a failure in the duty of care on behalf of your employer. In a workplace where the staff numbers are large, there should be a designated first aid person for every so many employees. For example, if your workforce numbers 20 or more there should be 3 qualified first aid staff; 1 for every 10 staff.
If your employer has failed to provide the relevant number of trained first aid staff plus the correct health and safety training, then they have failed in their duty of care and have blatantly put you and your work colleagues at unnecessary risk.
