Do you have a boss who just doesn’t seem to care about their staff? A good boss ensures that not only are their staff members happy, they are also safe in the workplace. By neglecting their duties at work, a negligent manager could cause accidents to happen which could result in serious injuries, to them or to other members of the team.

Your boss has a duty to keep you safe at work – simple. Health and safety regulations and procedures are there to reduce the risk of accidents occurring and ensure that every member of the team carries out their job safely. So if you’ve been injured and you feel that health and safety breaches have occurred, find out today if you could make a claim for compensation.
Losing your job
Chances are, you may not want to return to work at the same company if you’ve suffered injuries caused by a negligent boss. But if you do, there’s no need to feel worried about making a claim for personal injury compensation. Employers will have liability insurance in place to pay out in the event of a successful claim, and you’re entitled to claim if somebody else’s lack of care has caused your injuries. Perhaps you have suffered a broken leg after slipping on a wet floor, or crush injuries after a faulty machine crushed your arm? Whether you’ve suffered minor or serious injuries at work, if somebody else is to blame, you shouldn’t suffer in silence.
The boss who doesn’t care
There will always be bosses who don’t take health and safety seriously, but by taking action and claiming personal injury compensation, you’re ensuring they are not allowed to continue with their negligence. If your boss hasn’t trained you or your co-workers properly and you’ve been injured as a result, or if they ignore requests to fix faulty equipment and you’ve suffered because of this, call Accident Advice Helpline, It’s free to call our helpline on 0800 689 0500, and our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
