Do you need to contact Highland accident compensation solicitors after being hurt at a work event?
In order to increase team work and to create an enjoyable working environment, many businesses host events for their employees throughout the year. Some companies host annual gala dinners as well as social evenings for their employees whilst others take part in activity weekends or weeks.
Often referred to as ‘away days’, these events give employees a chance to get out of the office and socialise together. It’s often reported that this can help to bring staff closer together and can improve their performance at work.
One of the most popular types of events for businesses to host at the moment are activity days or weekends. These can involve outdoor activities at adventure parks, such as assault courses and paintballing, and are normally very popular with employees.
Of course, if you do choose to take part in these events, you will need to take care and ensure that you use all the safety equipment which is available to you. If you’ve never taken part in this type of activity before, you will want to take advantage of all the training that’s on offer to try and prevent any injuries from occurring.
If someone is hurt whilst taking part in one of these events, they will need to consult personal injury lawyers or Highland accident compensation solicitors to find out if they will be able to make a claim for compensation. If they can show that the incident wasn’t their fault, they should be eligible to make a compensation claim with Highland accident compensation solicitors. However, they will need to be able to identify who or what did cause the incident in order to make a claim against them.
Although you may have been at the venue because of your employer, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your employer will be held responsible. The venue owners or event organisers may actually be liable for your injuries so your Highland accident claim solicitors would need to assist you in making a claim against them.
