Industrial accident claims

If you have suffered a work-related injury, you may be entitled to make an industrial accident claim. The experienced team at Sheldon Davidson Solicitors have dealt with many cases of this nature, and can help make sure this claim is successful.

There are a number of circumstances in which you may be eligible for compensation. It may be that your employer failed to provide you with safe working conditions, protective clothing or did not give you the correct training to use machinery that consequently played a part in your accident.

Furthermore, this machinery could have become defective for reasons outside your control, either because a fault developed and went undetected or because the required safety testing was not carried out.

Your employer should also make sure all workers are insured in the event of an industrial accident. If this is not the case and you feel it has resulted in you being undercompensated, we can help to put this right.

Industrial accident claims are by no means limited to visible injuries. If you have developed an industrial disease such as deafness, asthma or a skin condition as a result of your working environment, Sheldon Davidson Solicitors can help you make a work injury claim.

If any of the above circumstances applies to you, contact us today and let us assess your industrial injury claim. It is vital that you begin your compensation claim as soon as possible after your industrial accident occurs, as there is a time limit of three years in place for injured parties to start their claim.

When your case relates to an industrial disease, the same time limit begins from the moment a diagnosis is made. Either way, it is very important to start proceedings at the earliest opportunity.
