Making an injury claim in Torquay
Tourism is one of Torquay’s biggest business and due to this, there are plenty of hotels, hospitality and retail outlets to be found here. Although as an employee you may not suffer to the same extent as poor Manuel did at the hands of his employer Basil Fawlty, accidents in busy retail and hospitality businesses such as those in Torquay do happen.
Without proper safety measures put in place, work related accidents and injuries can occur quite easily, resulting in serious consequences for the victim. However, many people are opposed to the idea of claiming for compensation due to an injury they sustained at work, as they fear complications with their employer.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we want to reassure you of your rights. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure you and fellow employees have a safe work environment. If you have suffered an injury at work that wasn’t your fault, making an injury claim in Torquay can not only alleviate your financial concerns and offer you much needed compensation for your injuries, but it can also prevent further accidents from occurring in the workplace. Injuries that can occur in the workplace include but are not limited to the following:
- Muscle strains
- Broken bones
- Back ailments
Your employer is legally obligated to have measures put in place to ensure your safety, but often such measures are not updated or are not good enough to begin with. Your employer is responsible for looking after you whilst you are at work and if they fail you in this way due to poorly maintained equipment, lack of efficient training or a hazardous work environment, then you may be entitled to compensation.
