Accident at work claim in Barry
When looking at accidents at work, we often think about industrial accidents or those involving heavy machinery. While accidents like these are common, and often quite dangerous, injuries can also result from accidents in shops, offices, restaurants and any other workplace.
If you were heading into the office on a rainy morning and you slipped on the marble floor in the lobby, you might not have been at fault if there were no warning signs or your employer was aware of the puddles on the floor but didn’t take action to clear them up.
If you were working in a shop and you tripped on computer cables behind the counter and hurt your arm, for instance, you might have a claim if your employer didn’t warn you about the wires, or take all reasonable precautions to ensure that they weren’t a trip hazard.
In a restaurant, you might have burned yourself in the kitchen because your employer didn’t provide you with adequate protective gear like oven gloves. In that case, too, you could be entitled to make an accident at work claim in Barry.
In fact, no matter how your accident happened, as long as you can prove that your employer was at fault, it’s likely you can make a claim. That’s because legislation requires all employers to have a duty of care to their employees. They must take all reasonable precautions to ensure workers don’t come to harm, whether that’s providing training, adequate signage or protect clothing.
