Accident At Work

Claiming if you have had an accident at work can be a stressful process. It is often easy to feel like your position at your company will be vulnerable following a claim. This should not be the case, as every employer is aware that they have a duty of care to provide you with a safe working environment. And as a result, your employer should have insurance in place, which means it will be the insurer paying and compensation awarded and not your employers. This is the case in every workplace, from a basic office to a complex factory full of heavy machinery.

If you have had an accident at work in the last 3 years which wasn’t your fault. Call us on 0333 443 2466 as you may be entitled to compensation. The accident could have been caused by an unsafe working environment, because you were not trained correctly how to use equipment or perform a task, or because you were not given the correct safety equipment. This list is not exhaustive, so if you have had an accident for any another reason don’t hesitate to contact us.

Accidents at work is a very broad area of the law. Therefore, it is important to have the correct legal advice depending on the specifics of your case. At Simple Legal Solutions, we have access to a panel of solicitors with experience in dealing with all types of accidents at work, this will allow us to find you the legal representation you need to give you the best chance of success with your case.

Factory Accidents

Factories can be dangerous places. Therefore, it is important that you have received the correct training, have access to the necessary safety equipment, and that a proper health and safety policy is in place to try and prevent accidents. Your employer also has a duty of care to provide you with a safe working environment. There are several Health and Safety at Work acts which a company must follow, as well as workplace regulations which must be adhered to. Failure to comply with these could show evidence of liability for an accident.

However, even in the most conscientious of workplaces, accidents can still occur. Some of the most common accidents which occur in factories include:

Due to the nature of the environment which is being worked in, many of these accidents can lead to serious injuries. This can lead to extended time off work, a long rehabilitation period, or ongoing visits to hospital. If you have suffered a serious injury at work, we will treat your case with the sensitivity and compassion it deserves. Contact one of our claims advisers today on 0333 443 2466, if you feel ready to discuss your case.

Industrial Disease

Working in a factory or with heavy machinery can cause long lasting serious medical conditions. As outlined above, employers have a duty of care to provide you with a safe working environment. If you believe you are now suffering with an industrial disease because of the actions, or inaction, of your current or previous employer. Call us on 0333 443 2466 and one of our advisers will be waiting to discuss your case.

Conditions which fall under the term industrial disease include:

The list above does not cover every industrial disease. If you feel you have an illness which has been caused by, or has worsened because of your working environment, get in touch with our expert claims advisers to start your claim.

You are eligible to make a claim relating to industrial disease if the accident or exposure took place in the last three years. Alternatively, you can claim if you only became aware of your illness within the last three years. This is called the date of knowledge, and is usually when your illness was diagnosed.

You can even make a claim if the company you work for is no longer trading. Companies are required to ensure against injury as per The Employers’ Liability Act 1969. The Employers’ Liability Tracing Office carries records of the insurance companies used by employers. If you need to make a claim against a now closed company. Your solicitor will try to track the insurance company liable for any compensation due through this route.

Office Accidents

When you think of dangerous environments to work in, an office is not usually one of the first places which comes to mind. However, if proper precautions aren’t taken the risks of injuries occurring are greatly increased. Offices are no different from any other workplace, they must comply with health and safety legislation. They must provide you with a safe working environment, and can be held liable if you suffer an injury because of an accident which wasn’t your fault.

If you have been injured in the workplace in the last 3 years. Call one of our expert claims advisers on 0333 443 2466 to talk through the circumstances of the accident. We should be able to quickly let you know if you are eligible to make a no win no fee claim.
