Lancaster is known as a county town, and it is the main town in Lancashire. It has a population of around 46,000 and has the advantage of a picturesque spot by the River Lune. The size of the town means you could have a chance of finding no win, no fee lawyers in Lancaster. However, with that said, searching for them locally is not the easiest way to find assistance if you suffer a personal injury.
Accidents in the working environment are uncommon, but we all know they can still potentially occur. If health and safety laws are followed, there should be no reason why anything might potentially go wrong. However, there are still isolated cases whereby people have been injured.
Safety guards at work
It’s worth mentioning safety guards here, because they are in place in many businesses and pieces of equipment and machinery. Factory machinery is a good example of this. Safety guards should be in position to prevent hair and fingers from getting too close to the working parts of the machinery. You could say the same in other settings too though – a butcher’s will have machinery with guards to prevent fingers from being sliced off.
Even the office environment has safety features in it. Think of a printer, for example, and the casing that prevents hair and other items from getting caught up when the paper is being fed through. If that casing was damaged or removed, there would be a greater chance of injury.
Did you get hurt because a safety guard was missing?
It’s easy to see how injuries can occur in these situations. Make sure you find out whether you could claim any compensation if you were hurt due to a faulty or missing safety guard on machinery in your workplace.
