    Teignbridge accident at work claim

    The local government district of Teignbridge lies in Devon in south-west England and had a population of 127,357 in 2014. Home to towns such as Ashburton and Dawlish, it’s predominantly a rural district, with those living here commuting to work in the nearby towns and cities or employed in agricultural roles. If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, making a Teignbridge accident at work claim may be the farthest thing from your mind. But if somebody else such as your employer is to blame for your accident, this may be the wisest move. You could be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, and you could receive a substantial settlement if you have been seriously injured.

    How do accidents at work happen?

    Most of the Teignbridge accident at work claims we have handled are caused by negligence. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim compensation for workplace accidents since 2000, so we have seen it all before. A negligent employer might fail to train staff properly or maintain equipment to a safe standard. They might not ensure the working environment is a safe one or refuse to give staff proper rest breaks. Any of these things could result in an accident happening, with the potential for serious injury to occur. Yet you don’t have to be seriously injured to be eligible to claim personal injury compensation.

    For example if you have sprained your ankle after tripping on damaged flooring in an office, your employer could be held liable and ordered to pay you compensation, which could include compensation for any loss of earnings, if you’ve taken time off work to recover.

    Will I lose my job?

    Many people avoid making a Teignbridge accident at work claim as they’re concerned they will lose their job. You can’t be fired for claiming personal injury compensation and your employer will have liability insurance designed to pay out in the event an employee makes a claim, so there is no need to lose sleep or feel guilty about this. At any rate, you might want to report your employer to the Health and Safety Executive if you’re really worried about safety at work – they usually carry out their own investigations.

    You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out more about making a claim for personal injury compensation or just to get some advice from our friendly team, in confidence of course.
