Is your employer liable for your injuries?
Although an employer can be liable for injuries which occur at the workplace, they won’t necessary be liable for every injury which happens on their premises. If, for example, you caused the incident which resulted in your injuries, you may be unable to successfully make a compensation claim against them.
However, as an employer has a duty to their employees and must meet certain health and safety requirements, they can be held liable for many of the accidents and injuries which do occur on their premises.
If you work in an office or factory setting and you experience an injury at work, it’s likely that you will have been hurt whilst in or on premises belonging to your employer. However, if your job involves going off site, your employer could still be liable for any injuries you sustained while you’re performing your job role, even if you weren’t actually on their premises at the time of the accident.
