Hiring workplace injury specialists in Northumberland for injuries at work
When it comes to making this type of workplace claim the most important thing is being able to prove that your employer is at fault for your suffering. By law, all employers are required to provide a healthy and safe working environment for their employees. If they have failed to do this, then you will certainly have the basis for a successful compensation claim. There are many different ways your employer could be responsible for your injuries. For example, they may have failed to provide the necessary training regarding the risks in your working environment or they may have not provided you with the protective equipment that is required.
Once you have proved that your employer is at fault, the only other things you need to do is make sure you see a doctor and claim quickly. You need to visit a medical professional because they will provide your workplace injury specialists in Northumberland with a report that will serve as proof of the injuries you have suffered. The reason you need to claim quickly is because there is a three-year time limit on all cases. This may seem like a long time but court proceedings need to be issued within this time frame.
It is also vital to make sure you report the incident to your employer or safety representative if you have one. This is because they will need to record it in the accident book, which all employers are required to have by law.
Last but not least, simply get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and we will handle your case for you. All of our solicitors work on a no win no fee basis, which means you will only pay legal fees if your case is a success, ensuring financial risk is minimised.
