It’s one of the more unfortunate results of the recession that the old bonds which used to exist between employers and their staff appear to have been eroded. While once upon a time you used to be able to trust that your boss would be there to support you in difficult times, now that’s not always the case. The rise in zero hours contracts means that many people receive no income when they are injured. If that happens then it’s time to find Caerphilly accident claim solicitors who can put right this wrong.
Looking for Caerphilly accident claim solicitors?
The problem with workplaces is even more pronounced when you consider that an alarming number of them are not fulfilling their basic duties when it comes to their own staff. Under the last any company has an obligation to safeguard the wellbeing of people while they are on their property. They will probably take out any public or employee liability insurance to cover them for injuries which occur on their premises.
However, research shows that the number of accidents in the workplace remains surprisingly high, with small and medium sized firms in particular showing a tendency to cut corners in an effort to reduce costs. For this reason, it’s crucial to know what your rights are when you’re injured in the workplace.
Fighting for justice
If you’re injured while at work in an accident which was not your fault, you will be entitled to claim compensation if you can show that it was not your fault and that your employer should have taken steps to remedy the situation.
