Accidents at work
An accident in Wealden whilst at work can happen for a number of reasons, and in a wide variety of different situations.
You may be a chef who is injured whilst working in a busy kitchen, you could be a professional driver, who has been provided with a faulty vehicle, perhaps you are an office worker who has fallen down a flight of stairs due to lack of lighting. Whatever the reason for your accident, if it wasn’t your fault then Accident Advice Helpline will do all they can to help you win the compensation you deserve.
Of course it is not always the case, but in the vast majority of the accident that we have dealt with over the years, it tends to be the employer who is at fault.
This is generally because the employer has failed in their duty of care somewhere along the line, and this failure leads to an accident occurring.
Taking the above examples, the chef might have been injured because the employer did not perform a suitable risk assessment on the busy kitchen, or implement a one-way route around the kitchen area to avoid collisions between staff. The driver may have been injured because the employer did not implement a suitable reporting procedure for faults with vehicles, or did not arrange for vehicles to be inspected or maintained on a regular basis. The office worker could have been injured as a result of failings to replace blown light bulbs, or for not installing suitable hand or grab rails on the stair cases.
In all of these situations where an accident in Wealden has occurred the employer would be regarded as being liable as they had made an elementary failure to protect members of staff. It would be our solicitors’ job to help establish precisely which laws, rules or guidelines have been broken by the employer to help prove that they were liable. You will then be able to claim compensation against their insurers.
