Are you looking for experienced accident lawyers in Mountain Ash?
All employers in the UK have a legal obligation to ensure the health and safety of their staff while in the workplace, as well as their visitors. If they fail in this basic requirement, and an employee is injured because of this failing, the employee may well decide to seek out experienced accident lawyers in Mountain Ash, in order to make a compensation claim. There are lots of things an employer can do to make a work environment safe, such as:
- ensuring that you have enough space in which to work comfortably,
- making sure any spillages are cleared up as soon as is reasonably possible,
- clearing any obstructions as soon as is reasonably possible,
- providing necessary protective clothing,
- making sure that all equipment and machinery is in proper working order and has all the required safety attachments, and
- providing staff with the proper training to operate equipment and machinery safely.
If you think your employer is not doing all they can to ensure employee safety, you can report them to the HSE (Health and Safety Executive). If somebody is injured in an accident through the employer’s negligence, they would be within their rights in making a personal injury compensation claim.
It is worth remembering that when you make a claim against your employer, it is not them that will have to open their wallet — your employer will, or should, have liability insurance for exactly this kind of situation, and it is the insurance company that will ultimately pay out.
An employer can be totally above board, do everything by the book, make sure all safety precautions are in place, and still you could get injured in an accident at work. If this is the case, you may need the help of experienced accident lawyers in Mountain Ash.
