    My accident was the result of inadequate training – can a no win no fee Martin Hill solicitor help me?

    When you start working for a new company, or take on new responsibilities within an existing company, you should be trained to the appropriate level in order to perform those duties. At Accident Advice Helpline along with our no win no fee Martin Hill solicitors, we know the importance of receiving proper training in the workplace especially if there is a need to utilise heavy duty equipment. Without proper training you – or others like you – can end up being involved in accidents that would and should otherwise be avoided. The question is though ‘what is adequate training‘? If you have been transferred to work with new machinery or have started working with new machinery for the first time then your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you are knowledgeable enough to use your machinery safely.

    As an employee you are entitled to training that will ensure you are aware of the advantages and pitfalls of using certain pieces of machinery within the workplace. You are also entitled to an appreciation of how other people perform in their jobs where heavy duty machinery or machinery which is classed as dangerous is used. To this end, Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Martin Hill solicitors have helped many clients who have been involved in accidents as the result of insufficient or inadequate training.

    I didn’t receive the right training

    The right training is as important to being safe at work as wearing the right safety equipment and without it accidents do happen.  Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Martin Hill solicitors know this only too well and have been called upon to provide assistance to many employees who have suffered an accident either because they have not received the right training or because someone alongside them hasn’t.

    If you are asked to use equipment that you are unfamiliar with and an accident occurs then there is a chance you may be eligible for compensation especially if your employer has not provided you with sufficient training on the machinery’s use beforehand. It is easy for many to say you shouldn’t use equipment if you are not familiar with how it is operated but sadly sometimes in the workplace this is something that is not taken into consideration.

    Poor training caused me to have an accident

    You may have had an accident because the training you received was not only inadequate but also poor. If this is the case then you may well be entitled to compensation for the injuries you sustained. To find out if you are eligible to make a claim for compensation and help from our no win no fee Martin Hill solicitor, we will need to make an initial assessment of your circumstances. Our lines are open 24/7 and our experienced and friendly staff are on hand to help. Call us from a landline on 0845 180 4123 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0992 (rates may apply and vary between networks) or text us with the words ‘CLAIM365’ to 88010.
