    Accident Solicitor Stevenage

    The town of Stevenage in Hertfordshire is home to a large industrial area and a number of business parks. GlaxoSmithKline is the largest employer in the area, located in the research centre at the end of Gunnels Way.

    Unfortunately, accidents take place in working environments across the UK and Stevenage is no exception. If you have had an accident at work, your claim may fit into one of the following categories:

    • Construction accidents
      While the number of workers injured in construction accidents has fallen in recent years, the construction industry remains a high-risk industry, accounting for around 9% of all reported injuries.
    • Factory accidents
      Factory accidents tend to occur as a result of inadequate training or a lack of personal protective equipment.
    • Industrial diseases
      Industrial environments can lead to serious conditions, such as asbestosis and vibration white finger. Unfortunately, symptoms often take months or even years to appear.
    • Office accidents
      Offices may seem safe, but they often present their own set of unique hazards. Some of the most common accidents include repetitive strain injuries and slips, trips and falls caused by electrical cables.

    I’ve suffered an accident at work – what are my legal rights?

    All employers in Stevenage have a duty of care towards their employees. They must therefore take practical steps to protect your health and safety and prevent accidents from happening in the workplace.

    If you have been injured in a workplace accident and believe that your employer’s negligence may have caused your accident, you will be entitled to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Stevenage. While the prospect may sound daunting, it is important to remember that it is against the law for your employer to dismiss or discipline you for making an accident at work claim. All employers are required by law to purchase employer’s liability insurance and this means that your employer’s insurance company will pay for your compensation settlement.
