No Win No Fee* Tendring Claims
As an employee, you might be aware that your employer has certain responsibilities towards your safety. These responsibilities are known collectively as a duty of care and as part of that duty, your employer has to take all reasonable steps to ensure that, whatever the nature of your job, you are safe as you go about it.
Should they fail in their duty of care, you could become injured and if this is the case you have the right to make a claim for compensation from them which you can do by contacting no win, no fee* Tendring solicitors.
The Ladder of Success
The duty of care also extends and applies to any equipment your employer gives you. Irrespective of the nature of your role or how “risky” it might be, any task you undertake and any equipment you use to perform that task is also covered by your employers’ duty of care which means they must ensure its’ safety in order to ensure yours.
For example, if you were to use a ladder at work, you would want to know that the ladder was safe for your use. If not, you could take a fall and no win no fee* Tendring solicitors could seek compensation for your injuries.
Although they may have been traditionally used by builders or window cleaners, ladders now have many more uses by estate agents, surveyors and artists, meaning that their use is more widespread and as a result so is the likelihood of accidents occurring during their use.
Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that any ladder, or any other equipment you use, is safe, fit for purpose and is well maintained. Whether the ladder is wooden or metal, it must be regularly checked and maintained and inspected for any damage or potential damage. Should your employer fail in this responsibility and you sustain injuries as a result of that, you could make a claim for compensation for those injuries with no win, no fee* Tendring solicitors.
It is also your responsibility to ensure that if you notice any damage or wear and tear to a ladder you are using that you report it to your employer. They should then act upon the information you have given to them but if they should fail to do so, you could receive injuries. In a situation like this, no win, no fee* Tendring solicitors could seek a claim for compensation.
