Fatal Injury Claim
Due to better health and safety standards and working practices, fatal injuries in the workplace are an uncommon occurrence. Unfortunately, they do still occur and when they do, the devastation left behind is huge.
If this fatal injury was caused by an accident that was someone else’s fault, then there may be a case for a compensation claim.
Whilst this definitely won’t be the first thing that the family members and loved ones consider, compensation could be vital in ensuring the family can carry on. For example, if a husband was the sole earner in a household and was killed in a workplace accident, the family he left behind have no way of paying bills or supporting themselves. Compensation would help enable them to do this.
Here, at Injury Lawyers UK, we can take the stress away from making a claim. We are experienced in making successful claims, operate on a no win no fee basis and will deal with the claim in the compassionate and empathetic way it deserves.
Types of Claim
Employers have a duty of care to all employees to ensure that they are safe from accidents and injuries. This includes providing workers with safety training and adequate and necessary equipment and tools. It also means ensuring that the workplace is free from hazards and safety equipment such as high vis jackets and hard hats are provided.
Common causes of workplace fatal injury include:
• Falling from a height
• Vehicle accidents
• Being hit by a falling or moving object
