    How to claim negligent boss compensation


    It isn’t a nice feeling to think that your boss may be guilty of negligence, but sadly it does happen in workplaces across the UK. Your employer is responsible for ensuring that you stay safe at work, and if they fail to take the necessary steps to prevent accidents from happening, you could find yourself eligible to claim negligent boss compensation if and when you are injured in a workplace accident.

    It’s not just the most obviously dangerous industries, such as agriculture and construction, where negligent bosses can cause accidents – there is the potential for an accident to occur in any workplace, so be vigilant. If you’ve been injured in an accident at your place of work, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim negligent boss compensation, and our lawyers provide a 100% no win, no fee* service.

    What is negligence?

    Negligence is when somebody fails to meet their responsibilities and doesn’t consider the consequences of their actions. Here are a few examples of situations which could be deemed as workplace negligence on the part of your boss:

    • Failing to provide you with the training you need to carry out your job safely
    • Failure to provide safety equipment or PPE
    • Not checking machinery and equipment regularly for faults
    • Failure to give staff adequate rest breaks
    • Providing an unsafe working environment, such as a dirty, messy or poorly lit factory floor
    • Failing to respond to employee reports/concerns about broken machinery or faults
    • Not carrying out risk assessments for dangerous projects such as working at height
    • Allowing unqualified/untrained individuals to carry out work such as driving warehouse vehicles

    Your boss takes ultimate responsibility for the safety of their employees, and if you have been injured and feel they have failed you, claiming negligent boss compensation is an option that’s open to you. There’s no need to worry about losing your job; your boss will have employer’s liability insurance in place to protect them against claims by employees, which will pay out if your claim for compensation is successful. You might also want to report your accident to the Health and Safety Executive, if you feel there is a risk to other employees.

    Life-changing injuries

    Negligent bosses who don’t adhere to health and safety regulations are quite literally putting the lives of their employees at risk, and if you’ve suffered life-changing injuries, such as loss of a limb, after a workplace accident – we can help. Call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out more about the simple claims process or take the 30-second test on our website right now, to see how much you could be entitled to receive.
