The government district of Tandridge in Surrey includes the towns of Oxted, Godstone, Caterham and Warlingham. It’s also home to part of the North Downs, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Residents here work in a variety of different industries – but all workplaces have something in common; there’s the potential for accidents to happen. If you have suffered injuries after an accident at your work, you might find you could make a Tandridge accident at work claim. Bear in mind that there’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim, so it’s best to act fast after your accident and get advice from a personal injury specialist such as Accident Advice Helpline.
Common workplace accidents
The type of accidents which could happen at your place of work will largely depend upon the industry you work in and what your job is. We have been handling Tandridge accident at work claims since 2000 and we have gathered together some of the most common workplace accidents to share with you:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Falls from height
- Repetitive strain injuries from carrying out repetitive tasks
- Falls downstairs
- Food poisoning from dining in the work canteen
- Scalds from spilling hot drinks
- Electric shock from faulty office equipment
If you suffer minor injuries that still require medical attention, you could find you’re able to claim personal injury compensation. Our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so even if you have taken time off work and suffered financially after your accident, you can afford to make a claim for compensation.
If you have suffered a life-changing injury you could be eligible to receive a substantial personal injury settlement if you make a Tandridge accident at work claim. At the end of the day, somebody else’s negligence (usually your employer) has led to your accident, so you’re entitled to claim compensation not only for your injuries but also for any loss of earnings you have suffered as a result of your accident.
You might even want to consider reporting your employer to the Health and Safety Executive – but first give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500. We’ll be able to tell you if you have a viable claim and you could even take the 30-second test on our website, to see how much compensation you could claim.
