    Compensation for failing to protect staff

    Would you trust your employer with your life? No? That’s what you’re doing every day when you go to work. Your employer is responsible for health and safety at your workplace, and failing to protect staff whilst they are working could mean they are held liable, should an accident occur.

    Employers must adhere to health and safety regulations, taking steps to ensure the working environment is safe and minimising the risk of accidents wherever possible. This doesn’t mean that an accident will never occur, just that it is less likely to happen. However, if you’ve been injured in a workplace accident and you believe your employer is responsible for failing to protect staff, claiming personal injury compensation is an option which may be open to you – just call Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you have a viable claim. We’ve been helping our customers claim compensation since 2000 and are proud to be endorsed by our patron, TV personality Esther Rantzen.

    Should you claim compensation?

    If your employer is guilty of failing to protect staff at work and you’ve suffered as a result, you’re perfectly entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. There are no guarantees your claim will be successful, but our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so we’ll only help you claim if we think there’s a good chance of success. If your employer has been negligent when it comes to health and safety, they should be held responsible, and you shouldn’t feel guilty about making a claim. In most cases, you won’t need to go to court, as most claims are settled before this stage is reached. Your settlement could pay for medical costs and help you to cover your household bills, so you can focus on the most important thing – recovering from your injuries.

    Next steps
