Since the 1970s, conditions have improved in UK workplaces. Fatal injuries have been cut by a staggering 87 percent, and non-fatal injuries, by 77 per cent, between then and the early 2010s. Nevertheless, you might still need to make a St Helens injury at work claim.
Accidents still happen
Work accidents still happen, and may lead to injury. This can happen anywhere, too. It doesn’t necessarily have to involve heavy machinery, either; slipping on a newly-polished floor can, and does, cause painful injuries to people.
When an injury does happen at work, it’s because the working conditions are, in some way, not suitable for the workers. The employer is responsible for ensuring employees’ wellbeing at work, so it’s their fault if, for example, the oil hasn’t been cleaned off the floor, the guard is broken on that piece of industrial equipment, or manual handling training has not been delivered.
Make your St Helens injury at work claim
If conditions such as those described above, or any others, have resulted in your sustaining an injury, then you could claim compensation through Accident Advice Helpline.
We are a law firm whose team of no win no fee solicitors specialise in personal injury cases, and we have been practising since 2000. As a result, we know our field very well indeed. We’ve dealt with probably every kind of work-related injury, ranging from cuts and bruises to loss of limbs; we also deal with industrial disease cases, which involve conditions such as mesothelioma, caused by asbestos exposure.
No matter how complex your case is, making a St Helens injury at work claim is simple and straightforward when you choose Accident Advice Helpline, because we take care of everything.
No court appearance necessary
In fact, most claims can be dealt with entirely via telephone, on behalf of the client. Few of the cases we handle end up requiring a court hearing. Insurance companies usually prefer to settle cases outside court, and so do we, because it minimises the stress that our clients experience. Just having a work-related injury is, after all, stressful enough.
One thing you will need to do, though, should you proceed with a claim, is to undergo an additional medical assessment. It’s also a good idea to keep a file of receipts for any expenses that you’ve incurred while recovering from your accident.
