Tameside is a borough in Greater Manchester in the north-west of England, well known for its historic market towns, heritage sites and canal network. It’s also named after the river Tame which runs through it. Many people live and work in Tameside and many people commute here for work. Fortunately work accidents are not as common as they were ten or more years ago although if the worst happens it is worth finding out about how to make a Tameside accident at work claim.
Accidents in the workplace
Many workplaces adhere to strict Health and Safety regulations, which prevents accidents from happening. If you are injured at work, it is often dealt with by a dedicated and trained first aider and it may not be a serious injury which requires medical attention or time off from work.
Yet serious accidents can happen when Health and Safety has not been properly followed. There may have been a change in management or something was overlooked which led to an accident. Perhaps you fell? Were you injured by machinery? Did you receive a shock or were you hurt by chemicals?
If you were injured at work following an accident which was not your fault then there may be a case of negligence which could see you receive compensation if you make a Tameside accident at work claim. Your accident needs to have happened in the last three years and you must have sought medical attention to be eligible to make a claim.
