Industrial accident solicitors
By law, it is compulsory for your employer to ensure the health and safety of all employees, in addition to making clear and concise records of any industrial accident that happens in the workplace. It is considered a criminal offence for any employer to not comply with health and safety standards, and as a result your employer may be prosecuted if found to have put employees at risk of harm, illness or injury. However, even if an employer is not considered to be at fault, the sufferer could still be entitled to a number of benefits, as employers have a duty to safeguard the wellbeing of their employees.
Workers in any profession who are injured in an accident that was not their fault could be entitled to make an industrial accident claim in order to receive compensation for their injuries and financial loss. Industrial accidents can occur at any time in any job, which means that the field of industrial accident claims is diverse and sometimes complex. If an accident has happened to you at work in the past and you were unaware you may be entitled to claim for compensation, get in touch with Stephensons and we can clarify if you are still eligible. Unfortunately if there is not sufficient evidence to back up your historical claim this can make things difficult, but our expert team are available to help and advise you in any way possible. If you have a long-lasting injury or illness due to an industrial accident years ago, you may still be entitled to claim.
Some industrial accidents can be much more serious than others, from minor injuries, through accidents resulting in the victim being unfit for work to serious injuries and in some cases death. If you have been involved in an industrial accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the person or company deemed responsible.
