Have you been hurt at work?
Even though many businesses and employers implement safety procedures in the workplace, accidents and injuries can still occur at work. Whilst some people assume that accidents are more likely to occur in seemingly dangerous environments, such as on construction sights, a significant number of people also suffer injuries in other working environments, such as offices, kitchens and even in public areas.
As your employer has a duty of care towards you, they must follow the relevant laws and ensure that the workplace is safe. This can involve making sure that there are enough spaces for all employees to work comfortably, that the temperature is appropriate and even that you all have the right equipment to do your jobs.
If your employer has failed to ensure that the workplace is safe or they have breached health and safety laws and you suffer an injury as a result, it could be relatively easy for an expert solicitor in Holmes Chapel to help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
If you’re unsure whether or not your employer has implemented health and safety regulations, you may find it worthwhile to contact an expert solicitor in Holmes Chapel as they could help you to ascertain whether or not you’ll be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Will I be sacked for making a claim with an expert solicitor in Holmes Chapel?
Providing your claim is genuine, you won’t face any negative repercussions for making a claim with an injury solicitor in Holmes Chapel. Although many people are wary about making a claim against any employer, you don’t need to be.
In most cases, employers will have insurance in place so it will be the insurer that pays your compensation rather than your employer, so they won’t face a dramatic loss of finances. In addition to this, your claim could ensure that they make the workplace safer and this could prevent additional injuries occurring.
