Workers in Bristol have a right to feel safe while they are doing their job. There is never any good excuse for being injured during the course of your work, and when someone else was responsible for your accident, you might be looking into a Bristol accident at work claim.
Making a claim following a workplace accident doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful. Our expert solicitors are perfectly placed to help anyone from Bristol with an accident at work claim, and have an enviable track record of success in this highly complex area of law.
Your rights as an employee
As an employee, whether you work in an office, a factory, on a building site or in a shop, you have the same rights to expect to undertake your work in a safe, healthy environment. This may mean you need to:
- Undertake training in order to do your job
- Have regular briefings on health and safety at work
- Be provided with protective clothing or equipment
- Have your tools and machinery regularly serviced
- Work with your colleagues to ensure a safe working environment
If something has gone wrong, and you’ve been put at risk, you should not turn a blind eye to the situation. There is no job role where being injured at work is ‘all part of the job’, so don’t take accidents lying down.
When you’ve suffered because someone at your workplace didn’t do enough to keep you safe, you can and should make a Bristol accident at work claim. Our solicitors are highly experienced in this area of law, and are the best people to have on your side in this type of situation.
