    Claiming after an accident at work in Chesterfield


    If you have been injured in accident at work in the past three years, and it was not your fault, you may be thinking about making a claim. To do this, you need expert legal advice, and Accident Advice Helpline can provide this.

    Your employers responsibilities

    Every year, thousands are injured in accidents in the work place. A lot of these are down to the failure of employers to meet legal requirements when it comes to health and safety.

    Obviously, their responsibilities to you at work differ depending on the nature of your job. The construction industry, for example, has a higher rate of injuries than office based jobs and there are more things for your boss to be aware of. Whatever industry you are in, your employer should be carrying out regular risk assessments and taking steps to reduce or remove potential risks. This includes providing you with proper safety training – lifting and bending correctly, using machinery etc.

    They also need to ensure that you are given the correct safety wear and equipment to carry out the job – high vis jackets, goggles, hard hats, dust masks, knee protectors and so on. If they fail to do this, and you end up injured as a result, you may well be entitled to compensation. Even if you are a casual worker, work for an agency or you’re even classed as self – employed, you may still have the same legal rights as a full time employee.

    Accident Advice Helpline can give you all the support and guidance that you need when claiming after an accident at work in Chesterfield.
