Whether you suffered an injury to your back while lifting a heavy load, or sustained head injuries because of falling objects, you can rely on Accident Advice Helpline to professionally and effectively handle your workplace accident claims in West Somerset.
Keeping the working environment safe
Employers and business owners are required by law to ensure the safety of their employees, maintain tools and equipment in good working order, and provide any suitable training and protective gear that employees need in order to do their jobs.
If your employer fails to fulfil these responsibilities, and you suffer a workplace injury as a result, then you could pursue an accident at work claim and receive a compensation payout.
Get the compensation that you deserve
As we have seen above, members of staff should be able to perform their work duties without the risk of injury or illness. However, a number of people throughout the country sustain personal injury at their workplace in incidents that could have been avoided, if only the proper precautions had been taken.
Often, suffering a workplace injury can have serious consequences for you and the people who depend on you. If your injuries cause you to take time off from work, this can mean a loss of wages, which may place huge pressures on your finances.
Accident at work victims are also sometimes worried about being sacked if they make a claim against their employers. Fortunately, it would be illegal for an employer to dismiss an employee simply because they made a claim.
You can count on Accident Advice Helpline
At Accident Advice Helpline, our specialist personal injury solicitors will do everything they can to take the stress out of your situation by fighting on your behalf to secure you a payout. We will also deal with your claim in the strictest confidence.
For more than a decade, our team of experienced accident claim solicitors has helped many people to receive the compensation they deserved from accidents at work that were caused by someone else’s negligence.
You, too, could get the compensation you are entitled to, and recover a range of out-of-pocket expenses and lost wages.
