    Solihull no win no fee*


    Solihull used to be the centre of manufacturing in Britain, particularly in the car trade. Factories still play an important part of the local economy today which is why injuries in an industrial setting are more common here than they are in the rest of the country. In this article we’re going to look at some of the issues than can pop up with industrial injuries and how you can improve your chances of getting justice for any claim you decide to make.

    Solihull no win no fee*’ claims

    Whenever you go to work your employer has to undertake to safeguard your safety. Of course they can’t eliminate all risks but they can take all reasonable precautions to reduce them where possible. If they do not this then they could be held responsible for the consequences. Those risks will differ depending on the working environment and for a factory they may be more severe than an office environment. Although given the amount of time we spend sitting at our desks these days, deep vein thrombosis might be considered a danger.

    Daily accidents are a constant danger which is why health and safety regulations can be so strict, but what often goes undetected are hidden threats such as industrial deafness. If you are working in a noisy environment for a long period of time it can affect your hearing. Your employer can and should do lots of things to address this problem. For starters, you should always be supplied with safety equipment such as ear defenders during your shift, but they can also buy muffling equipment to reduce the noise made by the machines and they can also limit the amount of time that you spend in this area.

    Making a claim against your boss

    For many people, making a claim against an employer seems too risky. If they want to return to work in that place they will worry that claiming can hinder their employment prospects. However, the good news is that no employer is allowed to discriminate against you because you decided to make a claim against them. If they do, they could be vulnerable to another claim being made.

    Paying for compensation

    Money can often be short when you’re injured at work because employers are getting increasingly miserly when it comes to paying sick pay. Many will instantly look at ways in which they can reduce your wages. However the good news is that you can get this back, but it means you might be worried about how you’re going to pay for your lawyer. That’s why it’s important to find Solihull no win no fee*’ lawyers who can help you out.
