After an accident there are many things that need to be addressed. What condition is the car in? Is anybody hurt? And will the insurance cover this? These are all important questions that need to be dealt with yet you might find that you have sustained injuries that are not apparent right after the accident; after all, your health should be paramount.

Trouble sleeping could build up to stress and a lack of sleep could mean difficulty getting through the days, as these problems will escalate and can make life very hard to balance everything you need to do.

So what should you do?

Well, the first step would be to contact a professional. Speak to some one who has a history of dealing with injury claims like Matt (pictured above). He will be able to access your situation and whether you will be entitled to an accident compensation claim.

There is a team of professionals like Matt that are on hand to help you through the claim process and they all offer a ‘no win no fee‘ service that is backed with a team of professional and qualified solicitors.

If you have been unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident then you might be entitled to a no win no fee claim that will provide you with compensation for any injuries sustained. My advice would be to get in touch with Matt or any of his co workers at Claims For You and see if they can help you today.

Health and Safety Tips for the Workplace

Around 5 million people suffer workplace accidents in Europe which result in more than 3 days off work. Studies show that the risks are much higher in smaller and medium sized business especially with ones having less than 50 employees.

These accidents can often be avoided with some simple procedures. In this blog post we will look at some ways to help stop unnecessary accidents.

  • Housekeeping – Low standards of cleaning is one of the main causes of trips and slips at work. Work areas should be kept clean and tidy with access routes especially clear of objects and obstacles. Rubbish should also be taken to appropriate areas outside the workplace building.
  • Flooring – All floors should be even and level and checked regularly for damage. If simple things like loose carpet tiles are present in the workplace, they should be fixed as soon as possible as these can still create some nasty falls. Slippery surfaces should be replaced with less slippery surfaces if possible.
  • Lighting – Good lighting can also stop a lot of common accidents from happening, you are much more likely to fall over something if you can’t see it in the first place. Good lighting is especially important on staircases and access routes.
  • Spills – All spillages should be reported and cleaned up as soon as they happen. Appropriate signs should be provided so all spills can be seen by employees.
  • Cables – Any trailing cables should not be left around access routes or anywhere which could possibly cause trips. Cable ties and covers should be used to avoid these hazards.
  • Stairways – All stairways should have secure handrails that will avoid accidents when travelling up and down them.

There are many more specific tips that can be used to stop other accidents from happening, but these few general ones should hopefully raise awareness and avoid employers having to deal with accident compensation claims.
