    Eden Accident at Work

    The law of negligence requires your employer to conduct themselves in a manner that conforms to certain standards of conduct. If your employer’s actions violate those standards, and you suffer an Eden accident at work as a result, the law requires your employer to compensate you for your injuries.

    Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you make a successful claim for your Eden accident at work. With a team of no-win, no-fee solicitors and advisers working together, you can be assured that you will receive the compensation you deserve.

    The elements of negligence

    To create a successful negligence claim, you must prove each of the following elements:

    1. Your employer owed you a duty of care
    2. Your employer breached that duty
    3. The breach led to the accident that caused you harm

    If you were partly to blame for your Eden accident at work, you will still be eligible to make a negligence claim against your employer. However, your employer may call upon a defence called contributory negligence.

    The idea behind the concept of contributory negligence is that you have a duty to act sensibly while you are at work. If you did not act in this way, your employer may hold you partially responsible for your accident.

    If contributory negligence applies to your case, you will still be able to seek compensation from your employer. Your employer will simply calculate your compensation settlement and reduce it to reflect your contribution to the accident.

    For example, if you were entitled to receive £10,000 and your employer determined that you were 25% responsible for your Eden accident at work, you would receive £7,500 in compensation. Even if you were 75% responsible for your accident, you would still be entitled to recover 25% of the total compensation from your employer.
