    Halton accident at work claim

    It is a legal requirement that employers protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and is not something they have a choice in. There can be all sorts of ramifications for not complying with the law, just one of them being a Halton accident at work claim if an employee is injured through no fault of their own.

    Problems other than a Halton accident at work claim that can result from an employee being injured in an accident at work

    The effects of someone being injured in an accident at work can be more far reaching than some employers realise, such as:

    • If a piece of machinery or equipment is involved, this could be out of action for some time, reducing production and ultimately profits
    • Staff can react badly, particularly if the employer had been warned of a hazard and took no action. They can refuse to work until matters are put right, and there is nothing the employer can do in the way of discipline – it is an employee’s right to refuse to work on inadequate or faulty equipment
    • If the accident is serious it has to be reported to the Health and Safety Executive who will investigate the circumstances surrounding it. If they conclude that the employer was at fault, they have the option available to them of prosecuting the employer, which can result in heavy fines and sometimes a prison sentence.
    • The employer should have employers liability insurance to settle any claims, and although this will cover the compensation and litigation costs, the employer could well have to face an increase in premiums at renewal.
    • From an emotional point of view, if an employee is seriously injured or killed in an accident at work that was caused through the negligence of their employer, they could well have to live with the guilt of their actions for the rest of their lives, something that not everyone would find easy to cope with.
