Bolsover no win no fee* compensation claims for work injuries
Unfortunately each year, hundreds of employees are injured as a direct result of accidents that have taken place at work. Such accidents take a variety of different forms but invariably they could all have easily been prevented.
It is as a result of the fact that accidents could have been prevented, yet were not, that Bolsover no win no fee* compensation claims are able to be made in the first place. Legally speaking provided that your accident and the resulting injuries, were not your fault then you will be able to make a Bolsover ‘no win, no fee*’ compensation claim, and Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you do that.
When it comes to establishing liability for a work-based accident, the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline will look at events which lead to your Bolsover ‘no win, no fee*’ compensation claim taking place.
They will seek to identify if your employer could have done more to prevent the accident from happening, and if it is found that they could have, then they will support your Bolsover no win no fee* compensation claim.
All employers have a legal duty of care to their employees – it doesn’t matter what the terms of their contract, how long they work each week or how long they have been with the business. This means that employers must do all they can to ensure that staff are kept safe and protected from accident and injury. If they fail in this duty and an accident occurs, then a Bolsover no win no fee* compensation claim can be made.
One way in which employers can stop Bolsover no win no fee* compensation claims being made against them is to ensure that all members of staff receive the necessary training and guidance to be able to perform their role properly and safely, and to avoid any potential hazards on site. This means offering appropriate training, and keeping records of who has attended what sessions. This means that if a member of staff injures themselves by not lifting an object properly, the employer will not be liable for a Bolsover ‘no win, no fee*’ compensation claim if they have a record that the same employer attended a manual handling course recently.
Training should be offered regularly to keep staff up to date and risk assessments should be completed at least once a year to potentially identify any other areas of training that may be needed.
