    Boston accident at work

    It is a big mistake to believe that accidents will never happen in your workplace. Accidents occur in workplaces throughout the UK and while most of these only cause mild injuries, others cause serious injuries that have long-term consequences.

    Your employer’s duty to prevent accidents at work

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) enforces a range of health and safety at work laws, including the Health and Safety at Work Act and all regulations made under this Act, for example, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations and the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations. Under this Act, your employer is obliged to:

    • Provide you with suitable equipment to carry out your job
    • Ensure your workplace is safe and clean
    • Provide you with any necessary safety equipment to enable you to complete your job
    • Take out employers’ liability insurance to protect against Boston accident at work claims
    • Appoint a competent person to manage health and safety in the workplace
    • Provide you with free health and safety training

    While your employer has a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure your health and safety, they do not need to cover every theoretical eventuality. This means that there will always be a chance that you will be involved in a Boston accident at work during the course of your employment.

    Making a compensation claim for a Boston accident at work

    If you are unlucky enough to suffer an accident at work caused by your employer’s failure to follow health and safety regulations, it may be appropriate to seek advice about the possibility of pursuing a Boston accident at work claim. At Accident Advice Helpline, our experienced team can assist you in making a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ claim for an accident caused by your employer’s negligence.

    Whether you have slipped on a wet floor, tripped down a flight of stairs or fallen from a height, we can work for you on a 100% ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, which means that you will be able to seek compensation for the injuries and financial losses you have suffered as a result of your accident at work. Your employer must have insurance in place to cover the cost of your accident at work claim and this means that your employer’s insurance company will usually deal with your claim.
