We all recognise that injuries can sometimes occur in the workplace, no matter how effective the health and safety is there. While the majority of employers do an outstanding job with health and safety, some may fall behind in this area. In other cases there could potentially be a situation that might appear where a co-worker may be responsible for someone else suffering an injury.
Negligence can occur in lots of different ways. However in some cases it may be a co-worker who is negligent and ends up causing someone else to be hurt while they are at work. Cases like this could potentially lead to negligent co-worker compensation being paid out.
How can you tell whether you could receive such compensation?
The best way to find out whether you might be able to get negligent co-worker compensation is to contact a lawyer who has extensive experience in dealing with such claims. It can sometimes be difficult to work out whether a co-worker was to blame for causing an accident to happen. While some instances can be easy to assess in this way, others are very complex. This is why a lawyer can be the best person to approach when you have suffered an injury of this nature at work.
Any compensation you may be entitled to would depend on the injuries you sustained in the incident. Some people are unlucky and suffer quite serious injuries that could leave them scarred for life, or leave them unable to work for a period of time. Any loss of income would likely be taken into account in these circumstances.
