What sort of accident at work injuries can electricians claim for?

Working on old or period buildings may present hidden risks such as fragile floorboards, unsafe stairs or even hazardous materials like asbestos.

Injuries which electricians can claim for include:

 

  • Claims for burns and shocks
  • Claims for chronic injuries at work (eg repetitive strain injury (RSI), back, neck and spine injuries)
  • Claims for serious injuries at work (eg crush injuries, fractures)
  • Claims for industrial disease or work-related illness (eg asbestosis, mesothelioma)
  • Claims for minor injuries at work (eg strains, sprains)
  • Claims for life changing or catastrophic injuries at work (eg brain injury, amputation, tetraplegia).

 

Making a claim for fatal injuries in the workplace

Who pays compensation to an Electrician injured at Work?
