If you work in agriculture and have had an accident at work, have you considered whether your employer was managing risks properly and taking the correct precautions? According to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) figures, some of the most common non-fatal injuries are caused by:
Around 12,000 agricultural workers report illnesses caused or made worse by their work. Your employer has a legal duty to identify hazards and assess risks, and take the necessary precautions so that you can work safely.
What specific injuries need to be RIDDOR reported?
What kinds of minor injuries do I have to report at work?
By law if you have an accident at work, even if it is minor one, you should reported it and have it recorded in your employer’s 'accident book’. It is helpful in a scenario where you might need to take time off work or claim personal injury compensation. Major injuries – for example broken bones, head and crush injuries, and contact with hazardous substances – should be reported to the Health and Safety department at your local authority or the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Certain injuries require a RIDDOR report.

What Are The Causes Of A Serious Injury?
What are the long-term effects of a spinal injury?
Spinal injuries can vary in severity and recovery time. The injuries can lead to temporary or persistent backache, mobility problems or, in extreme cases, paralysis.
Less severe injuries can have a reasonably straightforward recovery time. Bed rest or time off work can sometimes alleviate the pressure on the spine and allow it the chance to recover naturally.
In some cases, recovery becomes more of a case of condition management, because severe spinal injuries can have a number of different physical effects upon a person. Loss of movement or loss of control over limbs or bodily functions can be a direct result of a spinal injury.
Severe spinal injuries can also have a neurological impact. Patient.co.uk lists depression and suicidal feelings as potential major issues affecting people suffering from severe spinal cord injuries.

Can I make a medical negligence claim against my dentist?
As a medical professional, it is your dentist’s responsibility to listen to any concerns you have regarding your dental health and to communicate clearly with you, the patient, regarding any advice and treatment required.
The General Medical Council explains that medical professionals should establish and maintain partnerships with patients and communicate effectively. If you feel that your dentist has not conducted himself correctly, such as not paying attention when you described your symptoms or carrying out careless surgical procedures that seemed only to exacerbate the problem at hand, then you may be a victim of medical negligence and entitled to make a claim.
At Claim 500 our personal injury experts can manage your compensation claim on your behalf. We work on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis and guarantee a smooth, hassle-free compensation process.

What are some of the common plastic surgery procedure claims?
All types of operation involve some degree of risk. These risks can mostly be managed during the procedure though not in cases of medical negligence. Some of the common cosmetic surgery claims for medical negligence come from people who have had breast surgery, weight-loss surgery, nose reductions, facelifts and cosmetic dentistry. Included in this is aftercare for example if it was not satisfactory or if an infection was left untreated. Plastic surgery complications can also happen as a result of damage to nerves, arteries or organs during a procedure, due to medical negligence.

Can I claim for a botched plastic surgery procedure?
This implies that there has been medical negligence or poor clinical judgment that produced an unsatisfactory aesthetic outcome to your surgery, perhaps that has left unacceptable scarring or injury. Cosmetic surgery is like any other area of medical practice and if something goes wrong, it is for the law to decide whether there is any legal liability. You might be able to make a claim for compensation if medical negligence can be proved, though you won’t be able to if you’re simply unhappy because it hasn’t achieved as much as you anticipated.
How do I know my GP has made the right diagnosis?
Your GP will ask you a series of questions about your symptoms, followed by a physical examination if relevant, to help make a diagnosis. Based on the evidence, your doctor will offer you advice, medicines or other treatments. You can ask them to explain in more detail if you need it.
If you think that your GP has not made the right diagnosis and isn’t offering you the treatment you need, you can ask for a second medical opinion from a different doctor. While this isn’t your legal right, it is an acceptable practice. You can opt to see another GP at the same practice.
