You can claim compensation for an accident or injury within three years of the incident. Our client sustained a laceration to her hand when working on the factory floor.
She approached us two and a half years after the accident happened and as she had six months remaining in which to pursue a claim, we were able to act on her behalf.
We obtained an admission of liability from her employers within four months, issued proceedings in court to protect her position and settled her case after only seven months for £6,858.60.
Our client’s representative stated: “I have had the great pleasure of NV Legal sorting my wife’s claim out for a work accident. If anyone would like a solicitor to represent them then this is the company I would recommend. I am highly satisfied with the result. Thank you again to the team at NV Legal, it is much appreciated.” SB
Your employer has a duty to avoid accidents at work by ensuring you complete your work in the safest way possible bearing in mind the type of job that you do, the materials and equipment that you work with and the tasks involved.
Employers need to make sure that the place, or places, where you work and their premises in general are safe for staff. They are also responsible for the heating and ventilation of the premises, the lighting and surrounding areas.
