    Hurt at work in Broxburn

    Working behind a bar or in a restaurant or in any busy environment where food and drink is being served can pose a number of health and safety risks. Although sometimes accidents do happen in this sort of working environment, accidents that befall employees that come about as the result of the negligence and irresponsibility of management or the owners of a business are unacceptable.

    Business owners have a legal responsibility to look after the health and safety of their employees, regardless of the industry they operate in. Failing to live up to this responsibility could wind up costing a business dear if an injured employee decided to avail themselves of their right to seek compensation for what happened to them with the help of a top-class hurt at work in Broxburn solicitor.

    Picture the scene; you’re working in an overcrowded bar at the busiest time of the night. You’ve been allocated to look after table service. The place is packed, and as a number of other staff members have called in sick, you and your colleagues are having trouble holding the fort. So much so that important tasks such as making sure spillages and broken glass are cleared up are taking a back seat to making sure customers get the food and drink they’ve ordered.

    While rushing about the place, you trip on an upturned floor tile and fall on some broken glass that has been left on the ground. You sustain injuries to your hands that require a substantial number of stitches and are forced to take time off from work. As you have no right to sick pay, you lose no small amount of income during this time, despite being eligible to claim statutory benefits.

    In this situation, you may be able to use the services of a no win no fee hurt at work in Broxburn solicitor, to take action against your employer. Not only had they failed to make sure it had enough staff on duty to run its business safely, but they had also failed to fix the floor tile that tripped you over. A customer might also be able to take personal injury action under the same circumstances.
