Why claim for an accident at work?
We always assume that factories are dangerous places to work and while we wouldn’t necessarily argue with this broad statement we should never lose fact of the sight that Health and Safety legislation in the UK is amongst the best in the world and so thankfully serious factory accidents are far rarer than you might think. Of course even one serious accident is one too many and it is vital that you chose the right solicitor if you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident while employed, or indeed visiting, a factory. As mentioned above there are literally thousands of pieces of legislation in place either specific to factory environments or of a more general nature but still covering factory workers. This is of course good news in the main for factory workers as it means that significant measures are in place to prevent accidents from happening in the first place but by the same token it does mean that it can be a legal mine field if an accident does happen as it is essential that the correct legislation is identified and pursued.
