If you have suffered an injury in a Huntingdonshire accident at work, it could be that your employer has let you down. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure that you remain safe and secure at work, and if your employer has failed in his or her duties, you may feel unsure as to what to do next.
Important steps to follow in the aftermath of a Huntingdonshire accident at work
In the immediate aftermath of your accident at work, you should:
- Report your accident to your employer
- Record the details of your accident in your employer’s accident book
- Seek medical attention for any injuries you have sustained
- Take photos of the location of the accident and the hazard that caused it
- Request the names and contact details of any witnesses to your accident
- Retain receipts for any expenses you incur
If your employer has fallen short in any area where your health and safety is concerned, and you have suffered an injury in a Huntingdonshire accident at work, you have a legal right to make a claim against them. Your employer should have liability insurance in place, and this is there to cover them against the cost of your accident at work claim.
If you are sure the accident was not your fault, you should not let the fear of the potential consequences put you off filing a claim. Your employer’s role, where you are concerned, is to protect your health and safety, and if they have failed to do so, you should be able to bring a claim against them without putting your employment prospects on the line.
