Injury claim specialists in Blackpool
Accidents at work are a far too common an occurrence, with many employees being seriously injured or losing their lives every year. Many of these accidents could be avoided if employers took more notice of the health and safety regulations and complied with them. Then fewer employees would have their lives wrecked by injuries and fewer of them would need the help of injury claim specialists in Blackpool to get the compensation they deserve.
Much of the time, the problems seem more likely to occur in smaller companies. Large employers very often employ health and safety officers who ensure everything is in order. Although accidents do happen with large employers, more happen in smaller workplaces.
Employers sometimes think that the regulations are restrictive and slow production, or that they are too costly. Both of these assertions may be right – but how do you put a price on someone’s life or their well being?
The health and safety rules
There are a huge amounts of rules and regulations relating to health and safety in the work place. Some of them are general and relate to all employers and others relate to particular trades or professions.
It is the employer’s legal duty to find out what regulations they need to comply with for their trade or profession and to ensure they are implemented and known by all staff. Failure to do this could result in someone being injured because of their negligence. The injured party could get in touch with the injury claim specialists in Blackpool or Accident Advice Helpline, for help to get the compensation they deserve.
Using injury claim specialists in Blackpool will not bankrupt your employer
One of the reasons some victims do not make a claim against their employer is the fear of how having to pay the compensation will affect the business, and possibly the jobs of their workmates.
This should never be the case though as employers should have employers liability insurance. It is this insurance that settles the compensation claims. In fact, many employers encourage an injured employee to make a claim, as they feel they have paid these premiums for years with no contributions from the policy, and claiming compensation for injuries is exactly why it is in place.
