Industrial Accident Claims
There are many industrial accidents that take place in workstations the length and breadth of the country every year, causing sufferers to miss countless work days as a result. What is particularly galling about this is that many of these injuries could have easily been avoided simply by employers following the correct procedures. Most of these injuries are as a result of gross negligence, despite the best efforts of the relevant health and safety authorities, who do their best to improve workplace safety.
Obviously, there are many types of industrial accidents and injuries that can occur and, as a result, there are a large number of claims that can be made. Construction sites, building sites, factories and warehouses are rife with equipment that can cause serious injury; for example heavy duty machinery, faulty wiring, falling debris and large vehicles. It isn’t just the obvious dangers you should be worried about; there is also industrial deafness, white finger, chemical injuries, asbestosis and other real hazards, so if an injury is suffered from any of the above then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
At Alpha Claims & Hire it is not our intention to scare you off going to work in the first place. You should be aware that in most industrial workspaces, employers will provide more than adequate safety procedures to ensure accidents like this do not take place – indeed most incidents occur in only a small percentage of workplaces.
Yet even though such injuries are relatively rare, that doesn’t mean they won’t happen to you if health and safety regulations aren’t adhered to. Should you be unfortunate enough to sustain an industrial injury, it could well lead to long term health problems that result in a great deal of physical and mental pain, as well as the cost of any treatment and medical bills incurred.
If this happens to you, you may well be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation. All employers must ensure that there are adequate safety measures in place to safeguard the well being of their employees and that they comply with the relevant safety legislation at all times. This means that all machinery must be in correct working order and fully maintained, employees aren’t put in risky or dangerous situations and the workplace remains hazard free.
What often goes unnoticed is that it is also the duty of the employer to ensure that all employees are informed of how to be safe in the workplace. If you have sustained an injury as a result of an employer neglecting to adhere to the relevant health and safety legislation then you need to think seriously about making a claim for industrial accident/injury compensation.
