    Can I sue for health and safety negligence?


    Can I sue for health and safety negligence?

    Health and safety negligence is a broad term which can apply to an employer, a public place or even a landlord. For example, if you’re injured whilst visiting someone in hospital or shopping in a shopping centre due to health and safety negligence, you could claim for compensation.

    Landlords could be deemed to be negligent of health and safety if they fail to meet their responsibilities; providing their tenants with a home which is safe and fit for habitation, and that includes any furnishings and equipment they include as part of the tenancy.

    Claiming for health and safety negligence

    If you’ve been injured and you believe that health and safety negligence was to blame, you may be able to claim for compensation. You’ll need to prove that the negligence led directly to your accident or injury, and that could have been avoided had the individual(s) in question not been negligent of health and safety. It’s important to seek advice from a professional personal injury compensation lawyer, who is experienced in health and safety negligence claims, and to keep records of your medical treatment, photos and other supporting information which could help your claim.

    Examples of health and safety negligence

    The following are some examples of situations in which you could claim compensation for health and safety negligence:

    • A slip, trip, or fall in a shopping centre due to slippery or loose flooring
    • An injury at work due to faulty equipment
    • An accident at home caused by faulty appliances in a rented property
    • An accident at work where personal protective equipment was not made available to you

    In all these cases, the employer, business owner or landlord has been negligent of their health and safety responsibilities.
