UNITED KINGDOM – 19 Jan, 2018 – When it comes to workplace accidents and injuries and receiving compensation, Shires Law explains it best: “Accidents at work are very common and can happen in any type of job. Your company has a set of responsibilities to ensure where you work is safe and the risk of an accident is minimised. If you are injured at work or whilst carrying out work duties, you should always report any accident or fill in the accident book. This will help with any claim that you might pursue.”
Shires Law explains further that companies are required to have insurance for accidents that happen in the workplace, so if a worker makes a claim for compensation, their compensation will come from the insurance itself and not from the pockets of their employer – the worker’s job is not in any risk if they decide to file a claim.
Injuries can range from falls and slips at work as well as injuries at construction and building sites, injuries due to workplace violence, and injuries from the use of machinery. Burns are also a common form of injury in the workplace, as Shires Law attests.
Shires Law has been of great assistance to some individuals who have been injured in the workplace in the past. One past client, Sean Lee, states, “My last job had compelled me to remain exposed to asbestos fibres for years, which caused me to suffer from Asbestosis. I was about to file a claim with the employer when a colleague showed me (something) through this law firm. Shires Law is a very efficient and friendly team of legal experts; they truly empathised with my standing. They represented me in the court of law and I was soon to be happy with a fair amount of compensation!”
Another client, Kelly Ryder, enthusiastically says, “The service I received from Shires Law was second to none. My solicitor was very informative and always available to communicate with me personally. They achieved an excellent result for me and I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
