In the case of accidents at work, it isn’t always straightforward to assume who is liable for your injury suffered at work.
Each and every workplace accident involves a different set of circumstances. The scenario of each occupational incident means that it can never be predetermined who is liable for your injury suffered at work.
How to determine who is liable for an injury suffered at work
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand the unique nature of every personal injury. As such, we offer a free initial consultation for all victims of work-related injury or illness.
During this free initial consultation, we have the opportunity to discuss the nature of your claim, the ins and outs, creating a fuller picture of the harm and distress you have endured.
Once this information has been uncovered, we can help you determine both where liability may lie and your eligibility to claim.
When we have this information to hand, we can then assess, together, whether to move forward with your case to help you recover the compensation you are entitled to.
When an employer is liable for an injury suffered at work
All employers have a legal obligation to ensure the health and safety of their employees. When they fail in this duty of care, and a worker suffers occupational injury or illness as a result, the employer can be held liable.
Generally speaking, this can be applied to many cases of work-related accidents where insufficient training or poor maintenance of machinery has caused incidents, for example. Yet, without your free initial consultation with Accident Advice Helpline, this assumption of liability cannot be confirmed.
