    Claiming after an accident at work in Copeland

    Your workplace has a duty of care for you when you’re working on their premises. They must undertake all reasonable provisions to make sure the environment is as safe as possible. Although they cannot reduce risk completely they must make sure that the chances of something going wrong are reduced as much as possible.

    If your employer is deemed to have fallen down on that task they may be liable to pay compensation for any injuries that happen as a result. This compensation will be paid out of their employer’s liability insurance policy. This is something that covers them for damages and injuries which happen on their premises.

    Assessing your case

    In order to claim compensation you will have to show that the accident occurred as a result of your employer’s negligence. It could be a piece of machinery that has been left in an unsafe condition, or a stairway which has not been tidied and leads to a slip. If an accident occurs, there is a good chance you will be able to claim.

    There may be things about the environment which can lead to more ongoing issues. These can be more difficult to pick up but are no less serious. For example, in some factories industrial deafness has been a problem for those people who spend too much time in a noisy environment.

    The employers can make various adjustments to machinery and working practices to reduce the danger of damage occurring. For example, they could provide muffling equipment to the machines or they could limit the amount of time people spend in that noisy environment. If they have failed to do so there is a good chance they may have to pay compensation.

    Building your case

    Making a successful personal injury claim means proving liability and the full extent of your injuries. This means working out how badly you have been hurt and how this has impacted on your life. This includes physical issues as well as financial problems.

    Coping after an injury can be expensive. There may be medical bills to pay and if you’re forced off work, you may not be earning as much as you used to. If this happens you should incorporate this into your compensation claim.
