It does not matter how long you have worked in a job, you have the right to expect the same level of safety. If it is your first day, or you have been in the employment for 20 years is of no consequence if you are injured in an accident at work that was not your own fault.
If this happens to you, you should be talking to Accident Advice Helpline about making an accident at work claim in Cambridgeshire, or wherever else it is you are employed.
Employer’s legal duty to avoid accidents, and avoiding an accident at work claim in Cambridgeshire
All UK employers, no matter what their trade or profession is, have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work. Most employers do exactly that. They make sure the correct health and safety measures are in place, that staff are properly trained for any equipment they have to use and they provide any protective clothing or safety gear that is needed for a job to be done safely.
But there will always be some employers who find it too much hassle, or put profits before the well-being of the workers. These employers may well have to face a personal injury claim if one of their staff is injured in an accident at work. They could also be prosecuted for not looking after the health and safety of their employees.
Making your claim for an accident at work
If you have been injured in an accident at work, you are legally entitled to compensation and we can help you with your claim. Many innocent victims of work-related accidents are concerned about how they will be treated when they return to work. Research shows that most employees return to their job after making a claim with no problems at all, and that often the claim is not even mentioned.
It is thought that this is probably because it is not usually the employer that settles the claim. Legally they should have employers liability insurance, the sort of policy that employers buy every year and very rarely claim on.
For an innocent victim to make a personal injury claim, it could not be easier than if they use Accident Advice Helpline to assist them. We aim to keep all our claims as stress-free as possible, by handling them simply, quickly and efficiently.
