    Expert injury lawyers in Knaresborough

    You may have been injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault while in Knaresborough or the surrounding area, and so now you could be actively looking for expert injury lawyers in Knaresborough so that you can file a personal injury compensation claim.

    Getting help from expert injury lawyers in Knaresborough

    You may also be searching for expert injury lawyers in Knaresborough if you have been told by your doctor that you have an illness for which another person was responsible. It might be that you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease and you would like to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer.

    Injuries and illnesses at work

    Your employer has a legal duty to protect employees from health and safety hazards. If you contract a work-related illness or an occupational disease, you may be able to prove that this was caused by your employer failing to carry out his or her duty. You could then claim negligence on the part of your employer who was to blame for your illness.

    If you have an accident at work and are injured, this should be recorded in the accident book and reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). If the accident was caused because you had not been given adequate training to do a job, then you could prove that your employer’s negligence was the cause of the accident and injury. For example if you were told to manually lift a heavy object and you had not been trained how to do this with minimal risk of injury and you damaged your back, you may be able to prove that your employer had been negligent.

    If your employer fails to give you appropriate protective gear to do a job, this is also negligence on his or her part and could be grounds for a compensation claim, if you are injured because of it.
