Have you been hurt at work? If so, why not spend some time looking at this guide if you want to find the best injury solicitors in Talgarth who can help you with your case?
Whose fault is it?
Under UK law, all employers are responsible to their employees while they are on site. They must make a risk assessment and take all reasonable measures to reduce the risks of everyday life in the workplace. This doesn’t mean that they have to eliminate all risk – that’s not possible, but it is important that they do everything they can.
What those risks will be vary depending on the environment. An office will focus on basic health and safety, while industrial and agricultural environments will inevitably be somewhat more risky.
An employer might have to provide continual maintenance of any machinery and ensure that everything is as safe as possible. That could include introducing ear defenders to prevent a condition such as industrial deafness.
When you’ve been hurt
Employers should carry liability insurance to cover any accidents that happen to staff while on the premises. It will be this insurance policy, rather than the company directly, against which you will be claiming.
Before you start the claim, you should take time to look at your case and find out whether or not it’s worthwhile. To do this you may need to consult an expert, which you can do by logging onto the Accident Advice Helpline website. We have a team of people on standby ready to take your call and offer all the help and support you could need.
Our representatives will look into the details of your case and decide firstly if they think you can win, and if so then what you should do about it. In making this assessment, our representatives will be helped by the information you can provide.
Any evidence, such as witnesses’ contact details or pictures of the scene, will be useful in supporting your version of the events, so you should let us know what you have at this stage. While it is impossible to be certain of what will happen when the case goes to court, the more information you have the better.
