You may be able to make an injury claim against your boss using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline if you have been involved in a workplace accident in Somerset in which you were an innocent victim and sustained injuries that needed medical attention.
The criteria for making an injury claim because of a workplace accident in Somerset
There are rules you have to fit to be able to make a compensation claim for any type of accident, no matter if it was a workplace accident in Somerset or any other type of accident somewhere else. These conditions are part of the law relating to personal injury claims:
- You must have been injured in an accident;
- You should have needed to seek medical treatment for your injuries;
- The accident must have happened in the last three years; and
- The accident that must have been the fault of someone else.
Providing your situation complies with these rules, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim against your boss for an accident at work in Somerset, or whoever else was responsible if it was another sort of accident.
The injuries that can result from an accident
There are a limitless number of injuries that could result from an accident, some quite minor and others life-changing. Different types of accidents tend to produce different types of injuries, but generally the ones with which we are asked to deal are:
- Head or brain injuries;
- Facial injuries;
- Knee injuries;
- Elbow injuries;
- Leg injuries;
- Burns or scalds;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Eye injuries;
- Fractures; and
- Back or spine injuries.
Whatever type of injury you have sustained through the fault of someone else, UK law says they should compensate you, but this is a legal process and as such can be complicated. You need help with making your claim, just like you would for any other legal process.
