Do you need to make a claim against an employer for a work related injury caused through no fault of your own? Rochdale is a large market town in Greater Manchester, and was once an important centre of industry. Working conditions in the UK have improved and workers’ health and safety is supervised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Employers should inform the HSE of any accidents and injuries that occur in their workplace. Accident Advice Helpline can offer free, no obligation advice about making a claim against an employer in Rochdale.
Claim against an employer in Rochdale
You may be searching for a firm of injury solicitors, or one based close to where you live if you have been injured in an accident which you, with their help, can prove was not your fault.
You may also be looking for a claim against an employer in Rochdale or elsewhere, if you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was caused by another person’s negligence.
Accidents at work
If you have an accident at work, you may be able to prove that it was caused by your employer’s negligence. Employers should carry out thorough risk assessments before assigning any new task, so that employees are not subjected to danger.
They have a legal duty to train employees to do their job correctly with a minimal risk of injury or a risk to their health.
Employers should also provide workers with the necessary protective clothing and equipment in order to prevent accidents and injuries, as well as illnesses or diseases.
If an employer fails to carry out his or her duties to employees, then he or she leaves himself or herself open to personal injury compensation claims.
If you have an accident at work, you should inform the appropriate person, who should write down the details in the accident book, along with the names and contact details of any witnesses. This should be reported to the HSE by your employer. If you think this will not be done, you can report it to the HSE yourself and they will investigate.
