An accident in the workplace can be a difficult situation to deal with and the fallout can be uncomfortable and upsetting.
You put a large amount of trust in those that you work for, there is an unspoken agreement between the two of you. The agreement is a simple one, you work hard, turn up on time every day and do your job to the best of your ability.
In return, all you expect from your employers is to keep you safe and away from risk while you are at work. If your employers fail to do this, you could be involved in an accident at work and suffer severe injuries as a result.
Your employers have a legal requirement
When someone runs a company and employs staff, they are required by law to follow health and safety protocols.
Legally, those who employ you have to put the necessary health and safety measures in place to ensure the safety of you and your co-workers. If your employers have failed to do this, then they have broken the law. You are entitled to claim compensation and you have the right to claim it.
