    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Have you suffered an injury due to employer negligence?

    Although injuries at work are decreasing in the UK (the Health and Safety Executive reports that the total number of annual injuries has fallen by around a third in the past decade), unfortunately many hundreds of thousands of people are still injured each year at work, resulting in debilitating long-term injuries and financial hardship. What many people don’t realise, however, is that your employer is responsible for your safety at work.

    You may well be a responsible and independent adult, but you have no control over your working environment or the tasks that you must perform at work, and that means your safety when performing these tasks in this environment is your employer’s responsibility. If your injury is due to employer negligence, you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation.

    Is your injury due to employer negligence?

    While only an expert will be able to tell you for certain whether you have a case for personal injury compensation, consider how your injury happened. Was it over the long term, due to a lack of proper training?

    Was it due to hazards that shouldn’t have been there such as wrinkled carpeting, opened drawers, cables or boxes? Was it due to a spillage that hadn’t been signposted or a faulty electrical appliance? In all of these cases, your employer may be to blame.

    Personal injury compensation is a legal provision which has been created to help those who have been forced to suffer due to someone else’s negligence. It is designed to compensate not just for physical and mental suffering, but also for the financial burden that injury and disability can cause due to time off work and lifestyle changes.
