Employer liability when making an injury claim in Stowe
If you’re thinking of making an injury claim in Stowe after an accident at work, it’s important to know what your employer is liable for. If they have failed to adhere to the law regarding health and safety, they could face serious repercussions.
However, even if they’ve followed the proper regulations, they can still be held liable if an employee is hurt in the workplace. If you suffer a slip, trip or fall over loose cables, for example, you could be able to make an injury claim in Stowe.
Similarly, if you trip on torn floor tiles or hurt yourself on broken office furniture, you could be able to take legal action.
