Could you make a no-win, no-fee* in Sherington claim after your workplace accident?
It might be that you’ve been injured whilst working in the manufacturing industry. Whether you work in a factory or a processing plant, chances are that you are working with heavy machinery on a daily basis. Provided this machinery is well maintained and safe to use, there should be no problem. But faulty or damaged machinery could easily cause an accident that could leave you injured, and ready to make a no-win, no-fee* in Sherington claim. You could sustain serious injuries in an industrial accident, from crush injuries to loss of limbs or eye and facial injuries.
Or perhaps you have been injured in an accident whilst working in retail. Shops may not seem like the most dangerous places to work, but there are still plenty of hazards that could leave you injured. You’re likely to be involved in manual handling, and if you are lifting heavy or bulky items without the proper training then you could suffer a back or neck injury that could take weeks or even months to heal. Faulty ladders in the stock room could lead to a fall from height, whilst a wet floor without a warning sign could cause a slip and fall. You could even be injured by objects falling from height (for example, from shelves or display units) and hitting you.
Have you taken time off work?
Even if you have sustained minor injuries, you may need to take time off work to recover. This can affect your wages and you could find yourself struggling financially to make ends meet. By making a personal injury claim, you could be compensated for your loss of earnings. Many people don’t bother making a claim as they feel their injuries are too minor, or they’re concerned about what their boss will think. Your employer’s liability insurance will normally pay out if you make a claim, and you can claim for even minor injuries, provided you received medical treatment after your accident.
