Is your employer to blame?
When you contact us to discuss your accident in Tamworth our solicitors will talk to you in detail about what led to the accident. In the case of an assault at work they will be looking to find out whether or not your employer was to blame, and therefore whether they were responsible for the accident in Tamworth and the injuries you sustained as a result.
When it comes to staff members being assaulted there are many factors that need to be taken into account, and many safeguards your employer should put in place so as to avoid an accident in Tamworth from occurring.
Employers should always make sure that there are suitable staffing levels to make sure that no member of staff is ever left alone or vulnerable to attack. This is especially true for prison officers, guards and other security forces. If you have been assaulted and injured as a result of an accident in Tamworth then you could be entitled to compensation from your employer.
Employers should also take into account previously bad, threatening or violent behaviour from customers, clients and service users. If risk assessments are not performed or taken notice of then there is always the potential that an accident in Tamworth can occur, and sometimes people get hurt as a result.
Employers need to also make sure that all staff members are suitably trained to avoid accidents, and that they are provided with the relevant personal protection equipment to mitigate the risk of injury should an accident in Tamworth occur. Failure to do so will find them being questioned about the safety of their work environment and the threats imposed on staff.
