    Accident Lawyer in Hastings

    Hastings in a seaside resort on the south coast of the country. Over the years its popularity as a holiday destination has waned and increased several times. But as a residential area it has grown considerably, and with lots of new housing estates has come lots of new businesses.

    People who work in Hastings, just like anywhere else, have the right to expect to be safe when they go to work. If they are injured in an accident at work that was not their fault, they may want to find an accident lawyer in Hastings so they can make a personal injury claim against their employer.

    Can an accident lawyer in Hastings help with a work related compensation claim? 

    Your employer has a legal duty to protect your wellbeing while you are at work. If they fail to do this and you are injured, through no fault of your own, in an accident at work, you could be entitled to compensation. Claiming compensation is a legal process, which is why some innocent victims may be looking for an accident lawyer in Hastings to assist them.

    Many work related accidents could be avoided if more employers complied with health and safety legislation. The numbers of accidents at work has decreased over recent years, but they are still one of the biggest causes of injuries in the UK. The Health and Safety Executive, who act on behalf of the government in these matters, treat employers who flout the law very seriously. They have the powers to close a business until matters are put in order, and often prosecute employers who have allowed an employee to be injured because of negligence. 

    Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim against your employer 

    Understandably, victims of work place accidents are sometimes reluctant to make a claim against their employer because they are concerned about their job if they do. Most employers accept that they have to face the compensation claim after an employee has been injured at work. As they legally have to have employers liability insurance, and this settles the claim, quite often they will assist the employee as much as they can.
