Illness & Injuries at Work
Injury at work might be something you only associate with busy or hectic workplaces like factories and building sites. However, the truth is that avoidable accidents can happen anywhere as all different kinds of work may pose different risks to health.
Possible work-related illnesses and injuries, such as repetitive strain injury at work (RSI) or hearing damage are just 2 of the most common work-related health risks which may be present in your workplace. You need to consider the risks and the different ways that work can affect women’s and men’s health and how to go about claiming compensation in circumstances where one party is at fault.
Serious Injury/Fatal Accidents
It is important that you instruct a lawyer sooner rather than later if you wish to claim compensation for serious injury/fatal accidents. Photographs and details of witnesses are always helpful but if you do not have them we would be able to assist you and advise as to how to go about getting them. In addition, we can advise on the correct level of compensation that you or your family may be entitled to. As you only get one bite of the cherry, it is imperative that you get it right the first time.
Where can you get legal advice?
If you have sustained serious injury at work which were not caused by your fault, make sure to report the issue to your employer. If however, you haven’t received any support or guidance from your employer after informing them about the issue and it’s getting worse, you may be able to claim compensation.
