Proving your employer’s negligence is vital to the success of any accident at work claim. Without evidence of this, you are unlikely to receive any compensation.
Croftons Solicitors will be able to examine all aspects of your case to determine if your employer could and should have done more to prevent the circumstances surrounding your injury.
When Could An Employer Be At Fault?
There are many circumstances in which a workplace accident may occur due to employer negligence.
For example, office workers could slip or trip over damaged carpets or stairs, or suffer a back injury while lifting an object. Even typing has been shown to bring on a repetitive strain injury if precautions are not taken.
Your employer should ensure your workplace is safe and give all new staff the correct health and safety training in order to avoid these problems.
If they have not done this and you are involved in an incident such as these, you may be able to claim.
Even in high risk workplaces such as factories and building sites, employers are still expected to create the safest possible environment.
This means providing adequate personal protective equipment and ensuring all machinery is safe to use. Industrial injuries such as vibration white finger and hearing loss can occur if this is not the case.
Even if your accident is caused by another employee or someone assaulting you at work, you may still be able to claim compensation.
Many employees in this situation are worried about claiming against their employer, but this is nothing to be concerned about as any compensation will come from your employer’s insurance company.
