The London borough of Enfield in North London was once a small market town based in Middlesex. With the expansion of London, it became a suburb linked to central London by fast transport. Did you know that the Barclays Bank here was the first place in the world to have a cash machine, officially opened in 1967? Whatever job you have, if you’ve been injured at work in the borough you could find yourself able to claim Enfield accident at work compensation.
Who’s to blame for workplace accidents?
It’s all too easy to blame yourself if you’re injured in an accident at work – but that might not be the case. Employers have a duty to keep their staff safe at work, and if you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, it could be that your employer is responsible. For example if you’ve suffered repetitive strain injury after your employer refused to allow you to take rest breaks, you could find yourself with a viable claim for Enfield accident at work compensation.
If you have tripped on damaged flooring in an office, your employer could be held liable for failing to ensure the flooring was safe. It doesn’t really matter whether your injures are minor or more serious – what matters is that somebody else is responsible for your accident. If you want to find out whether or not you could make a claim for compensation, you’ll need to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline within three years of your accident.
