If you have been involved in a workplace accident that was not your fault, or have developed an illness or disease as a result of your working conditions, Accident Advice Helpline could help you make a claim for compensation.
Claiming compensation through Accident Advice Helpline
Our specialist personal injury solicitors will need to prove that your injury or illness was caused by somebody else’s negligence. In the workplace, this means your employer, or even a fellow employee.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand the inconvenience as well as the mental and emotional suffering one goes through after an accident at work. More serious injuries can often mean time off from work (which sometimes translates to lost wages) and a range of out-of-pocket expenses.
To recover these costs, you should claim compensation. To learn more about how you can start your claim and receive the full compensation amount for your pain and suffering, call Accident Advice Helpline today and one of our friendly legal advisors will talk you through the claims process.
The duties of your employer
All employers and business owners are required to provide safe working environments for their employees. They must make the necessary risk assessments and take the appropriate precautions to ensure that safety is maintained and the risk of an accident at work occurring is minimised. This includes replacing or repairing faulty equipment.
Employers’ duties include, but are not limited to:
- Repairing, replacing and upgrading tools and equipment
- Maintaining a clean and tidy work environment
- Providing proper training to employees, for example, training staff in the lifting of heavy loads, so as to avoid back injury
- Providing employees with safety gear and protective clothing, such as hard hats, ear plugs, high visibility clothing, goggles, etc. where applicable
Failure on the part of your employer to observe these responsibilities could result in an accident, and, of course, this would be reason enough for an employee to make accident at work claims in Tendring. You may also have a valid claim if the workplace accident was caused by the negligent actions of a fellow employee.
