Having sustained injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Often those injured in an accident have been the victim of another person’s negligence or failure to pay the correct attention to the job in hand. With this in mind, Accident Advice Helpline and our legal help for accidents in Christchurch are here to help secure the compensation you deserve.
There are no limits to the type of accident that can leave someone like you injured. In the United Kingdom annually alone, there are thousands of accidents each year that leave those around them injured through no fault of their own.
For legal help for accidents in Christchurch, our solicitors are experienced in securing the right level of compensation for those who have been injured in accidents caused by someone else. These accidents should have been avoided, but were not, because of a failure on behalf of another to carry out their duties correctly.
I expected to be safe in my workplace
One of the most common places in which to have an accident is the workplace. Every year there are thousands of workplace accidents that should have been avoided. These accidents leave the injured parties unable to return to work for lengthy periods of time afterwards. In addition they put strain on those around to pick up the slack in the absence of an injured work colleague.
In the workplace your employer has what is known as a ‘duty of care’. This ‘duty of care’ means that your employer is obliged, by law, to ensure you and those you work with are as safe in the workplace as is possible. Otherwise, you may wish to seek legal help for accidents in Christchurch.
This undertaking on behalf of your employer involves making sure that all of the necessary health and safety procedures are in place and in force. In addition to this your employer will be tasked with ensuring there is sufficient first aid cover should an accident in the workplace happen.
Failing to provide adequate first aid cover and ensuring health and safety procedures are in place and met, is a failure in the duty of care undertaken by your employer. As well as failing to ensure that you and your work colleagues are safe in the workplace, this lapse of detail can count towards the cause of workplace accidents.
