    How to claim employer negligence injury compensation


    With thousands of different jobs to choose from and even more people doing them every day, it is perhaps not surprising that a small number of people can occasionally be injured at work. It isn’t that common for accidents to happen in the workplace, although with that said, some careers have higher injury statistics than others.

    Industries such as farming and construction are among those that are potentially more dangerous than others, such as office work for instance.

    However, any workplace has the potential to be dangerous if the employer does not do their duties to keep their workers safe from harm. The Health and Safety at Work Act covers all the things an employer must do to ensure their workplace is safe in every respect. If this law is not followed in some way and someone is injured at work, there could be the opportunity to make an employer negligence injury compensation claim.

    Injuries at work

    People can be injured in a variety of ways in the workplace. Machinery can pose a potential risk of injury if people are not trained in how to use it, or if it is substandard, broken or damaged or not maintained.

    In other situations people may be injured in much simpler – yet still quite painful – ways. A good example would be the presence of a wet or slippery floor that causes someone to slip over and hurt themselves. Similarly a lack of training can lead to a situation where someone is unnecessarily hurt. As you can see, all manner of things can go wrong that can result in injury.
