Making an accident claim in South Northamptonshire against your employer is often possible because they have a duty of care. This duty of care is designed to ensure that all members of staff are protected, as far as is possible, from any risks associated with their jobs. If an employer fails to protect staff as required by law, then they are regarded as being liable.
Given that the vast majority of work based accidents do occur as a result of failings in this duty of care, many employers are found to be responsible and therefore an accident claim in South Northamptonshire will be made against them.
For example, it is the responsibility of an employer to ensure that all members of staff are fully trained to perform the tasks associated with their jobs. This means that staff must know how to operate machinery if necessary, or how to work in a safe and effective manner.
The local environment should also be free from risks. This can mean ensuring that there is a high level of general housekeeping, with items stored away safely and rubbish is not left lying around. The property should be well maintained as well, ensuring that there are no spillages or loose tiles on floors etc that could pose a tripping or slipping hazard.
If you have an accident at work and your solicitor is able to determine that your employer is responsible, then an accident claim in South Northamptonshire can be made against them. Why not contactAccident Advice Helpline today to find out for certain whether or not we can help you with your claim?
