Stafford law firm

Working in any type of extreme conditions can be demanding, but toiling away in low temperatures can be particularly unpleasant if you haven’t been furnished with the right type of safety equipment, clothing or training.

If you work in a job that involves having to brave very cold or wet conditions on a regular and sustained basis, it will be the responsibility of your employer to equip you with the requisite gear and knowledge that will ensure that you don’t come to any harm as a consequence of being exposed to chilly conditions.

If your employer fails in this duty and you end up with a nasty cold-related injury, there will be a chance that you’ll be able to take some form of 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ personal injury action against the company that employs you with the help and assistance of a top 100% ‘no win, no fee*’ Stafford law firm.

Cold exposure injuries and using a Stafford law firm to claim compensation

Imagine that you worked as a soldier or served as a TA reservist and were sent on practice operations to the Hebrides in the middle of a very cold winter. The point of the exercise is to train you in working in the type of an environment. If you were ever sent to cold parts of the world as part of your military service, you would typically be equipped with gear that would keep the cold out and stop you from suffering conditions such as frost bite and trench foot.

However, for some reason, on this training exercise you have not been given the safety equipment and clothing you need. Your superiors obviously did not have Stafford law firm action in mind when preparing your practice operation. After spending a few days in freezing temperatures in the wilderness, you start to notice a loss of feeling in your toes. You’re keen to impress, so do not mention this and literally soldier on.

When you finish your operation and come back to base for a once over, you are told that you have frost bite. Under these circumstances, you might well be able to take some form of Stafford law firm action against the Ministry of Defence for failing to make sure you were properly equipped.
