Industrial injuries claim
Your employer is legally required to ensure your work environment is safe, and this includes any materials or machinery you use as part of your job.
If you have suffered an injury at work and believe your employer failed to take the necessary steps to ensure your safety, you may be entitled to compensation. This can apply if you have been injured as a result of a single incident, or it could be that you have developed an injury due to prolonged exposure to an unsafe working environment, equipment or materials.
Your employer may also have failed to provide the necessary protective equipment, training or other safety requirements, again placing you in a potentially dangerous situation.
Industrial accident claims can be made for a wide variety of personal injuries, from slips, trips and falls to serious injury claims. Examples of a serious injury include damage to your brain or spine, or an amputation.
We can also help if you are suffering from an industrial disease, which may have occurred over a long period of time. Common cases include asthma, skin diseases or skin cancer, asbestos exposure, poisoning, repetitive strain injury, deafness or loss of sight.
How our personal injury solicitors can help
Whatever the nature of your work-related injury, Sheldon Davidson Solicitors will be able to help. Our team of personal injury solicitors in Manchester specialises in cases such as this, where someone has been injured through no fault of their own.
We are able to draw on many years of experience in dealing with industrial injury claims, and as such we recognise the importance of ensuring you receive all the medical attention you need while we attempt to secure you the compensation you deserve.
Personal injury claims involving the workplace are time sensitive, so it is important to get in touch with a specialist solicitor right away. Injuries at work require you to begin your claim within three years of the incident, while for industrial diseases you have three years from the moment you are diagnosed.
We can also provide assistance if you feel you have been the victim of professional negligence. This can occur if you originally made your industrial accident claim through another solicitor, but feel your case was not handled correctly, causing you to be awarded less compensation than you feel you deserve.
Our solicitors can review your claim to see if it could have been handled better, and if so we will revisit the case in order to help you receive all the compensation you were due.
