How to tell if your employer is at fault for your injury
If you have had an accident at work, you may be able to claim compensation if it was caused due to the negligence of your employer. To make a work injury claim in Mersea Island, you will want to be certain that you have a good case for compensation. If you plan to stay in your job, you need to be sure that you are in the right because this could make your work life difficult and uncomfortable, particularly if you are in the wrong.
Your employer should always be approached before you begin a compensation claim so that you can talk through what you plan to do. In order to avoid a case, your employer may be willing to give you compensation without you having to approach a personal injury law firm. It will also make the process more comfortable for both you and your employer.
How can you tell if your employer is at fault?
Employers have a duty of care to all employees. Everything possible should be done to make sure that workspaces are safe, comfortable and conducive to a pleasant working atmosphere. This can be done by:
- Ensuring that an employee has the right tools to do the job they are paid to do. Being given tools which don’t work or don’t work as well as they are supposed to can lead to injuries. In this case, you are likely to be able to make an injury claim in Mersea Island.
- Ensuring that the workplace is clean and tidy. Messy or unclean workplaces can lead to accident or illness, and if an employee suffers from either because of the condition of the workplace, an injury claim in Mersea Island can be filed. Make sure that any accidents caused by a messy environment were the fault of the employer and not you, though.
- Providing employees with the necessary safety equipment for their job. If your job requires you to wear safety equipment and this has not been provided, then you may be able to claim for compensation if you are injured. If safety equipment has been issued and you were simply not wearing it though, you will not be able to make a claim.
