Many industrial accidents occur as a result of substandard health and safety management within workplaces, which leaves employees exposed to potentially harmful occupational hazards. If your employer has failed to fulfil their duty of care and provide a safe workspace, which has led to you becoming injured in an accident, they can be held responsible for the damage that has been caused.
Common types of industrial accidents
Our solicitors often find that the most common industrial accidents include:
- Trips, slips and falls
- Exposure to harmful chemicals and substances
- Exposure to excessive climates and environments
- Strenuous and overexerting tasks
- Falling or obstructing objects
However you have been injured at work, you can trust our experienced legal team to competently manage your industrial injury claim on your behalf.
Steps to take after an industrial accident
Workers harmed in industrial accidents need to visit their GP or an A&E department if the injury is serious. This will allow you to gain access to the medical support and treatment you need, giving you every opportunity to recover quickly and get your life back to normal.
We also recommend that you contact a specialist industrial injury solicitor such as Roberts Jackson. Our team will be able to provide you expert legal advice on the steps to follow next, and offer information on compensation claims, government funding and any charitable support available.
Pursuing a industrial injury claim
If we believe that making a claim would be in your best interests, our legal team can also handle the case on your behalf and secure you the industrial injury compensation you rightfully deserve.
Once we find out about your industrial accident and injury, gather all available evidence and speak to the relevant specialists and witnesses, we can then use our legislative knowledge and claims management experience to establish a strong case against the responsible party.
Our solicitors can then present your case to the employer at fault and negotiate your settlement so you are fully compensated for the incident.
