Accidents at Work
All employers have a legal obligation to maintain certain health and safety standards. To offer protection from the chance of an accident occurring, an employer must:
- Carry out regular health and safety assessments and risk assessments of working conditions and any equipment used.
- Provide proper equipment for the job
- Provide correct and adequate training for all employees, so they can carry out their jobs safely
- Ensure safety measures are in place and are being followed correctly.
If you suffer an injury in your workplace, the first thing to do is notify your employer. They may have an accident compensation claim system in place themselves; you should also speak to a specialist personal injury solicitor who can let you know your rights and how to proceed with a claim if relevant.
You can make a claim even if you think you may have been partially to blame. We can help you find out where you stand and what your rights are.
