Your workplace may seem like an innocuous environment, especially if you work in a quiet office or a small retail store, but if one of your fellow employees fails to act with care and consideration, you could find yourself in harm’s way.
If you sustain an injury at work in this way, you will undoubtedly have concerns over a range of issues that could affect you and your loved ones. Aside from the pain of your injuries, you are likely to worry about your financial standing, your career prospects and your future health.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand all your concerns, and we are always here to provide you with no-obligation advice on your legal rights.
Careless employees and your legal rights
As you may already know, your employer has a duty of care to protect you from harm, and to minimise your risk of suffering an injury in a Camden accident at work.
However, you may not realise that your employer is also legally responsible for the actions of your fellow employees. Therefore, if you sustain an injury due to the careless or inconsiderate actions of your colleagues, you may be able to hold your employer liable.
We understand that you may feel reluctant to claim against your employer, especially if your employer did not cause your accident. You may feel that your claim will result in your dismissal or may damage your working relationships to such an extent that you will have no other choice but to leave your job.
We encounter these concerns all the time, and we are pleased to report that your worries are groundless. Your employer will not be able to sack you or treat you unfairly following learning of your compensation claim, and if you happen to suffer ill treatment at the hands of your boss, you will be able to make a second claim for compensation with the help of an employment lawyer.
