Have you been injured at work in Torbay?
If you are employed and have been injured at work in Torbay which has caused you some form of personal injury, then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for financial compensation.
Duty of care
If you have been injured at work in Torbay then you may be able to make a claim against your employer, assuming of course that the accident in question was their fault, either directly or indirectly.
All employers have a legal “duty of care” to their employees. This means that they have to do everything within their power to ensure that the work environment is safe for you, and your colleagues. This can mean ensuring that the equipment you are using is well maintained, that you have been provided with suitable personal protection equipment to minimise injuries should an accident occur, and providing you with the suitable training to ensure you can do all the roles associated with your job safely.
Why people don’t claim
Even though it is your legal right to make a claim for compensation against your employer if you have been injured, many people decide not to. Those that contacted Accident Advice Helpline to discuss their options often state that they are worried that making a claim will mean that the company they work for will suffer financial repercussions, which will have an impact on the business as a whole.
This is not the case. Our solicitors will be able to discuss the specifics related to your case, and will be able to reassure you that it is a legal requirement for all employers to take out employer’s liability insurance. This is precisely to combat any claims that are made against them as a result of injuries which have occurred in the work place. If your accident in Torbay means that you can make a claim, and you are ultimately awarded compensation, then it will be your employer’s insurance provider who covers the cost of your compensation and not your employer themselves.

To find out how much you might be entitled to claim as a result of your accident, you can take our 30 second test today.
