Crush Injury At Work
You may be able to seek compensation if you suffered a crush injury at work as a result of your employer’s negligence.
Crush injury at work claims
If you suffered a crush injury at work that was not your fault, you may be able to file a crush injury compensation claim. Crush injuries can be devastating to your physical and mental health. They frequently occur in dangerous workplaces.
Crush injuries to the fingers, hands, legs, or, in some cases, the chest is the most common. All of these can have life-altering consequences, ranging from severe pain to the inability to work. Any compensation awarded for a successful claim may assist in your recovery as well as cover any financial losses incurred as a result of the incident, such as being unable to work due to your injury.
A successful claim for crushed foot injury compensation, hand crush injury compensation, or any other type of crush injury caused by a workplace accident must demonstrate that the incident was someone else’s fault and that the employer is liable.
When can you claim compensation for a crush injury at work?
If you were injured at work, you may be able to file a claim under the Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974. You must be able to explain that your employer did not follow these guidelines, for example, by not conducting risk assessments or properly training you.
Employers are required by law to provide a safe and secure working environment for their employees, as well as to ensure that they are properly trained for the job. This includes construction site management companies, contractors, and other industry organizations. They are also in charge of the site’s visitors’ safety.
To be eligible for compensation, it must be proven that the organization in charge of health and safety was negligent and failed to meet its statutory obligations. In such cases, the employer will be held accountable and the claimant will be compensated.
How many compensation claims can you get for a crush injury?
Because each case is unique, there is no one-size-fits-all compensation amount for crush injury claims. Rather, our experienced lawyers will examine your case to determine the severity of your injury and how it has affected your life.
Severe and long-term injuries, such as the inability to use one of your hands, will result in much higher payouts. We will listen to you carefully and work hard to get you as much no-fee compensation as possible. We can also assist with early compensation (interim) payments, which are aggregates of money deducted from the final compensation amount to help you get by while you wait.
