West Hampstead is an area in north-west London, in the London borough of Camden. Its convenient location to the Metropolitan line at Finchley Road and its own Jubilee line stop (West Hampstead), together with a high concentration of bars and restaurants, means that the area is a popular leisure destination for many people.
Such a commercial hub of bars, cafes and retail units often makes West Hampstead a crowded place, and unfortunately such an environment also has the potential for plenty of workplace accidents as well.
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 difficulties with their employer.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we want people to know the truth. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure you and fellow employs have a safe work environment. If you have suffered an injury at work that wasn’t your fault, making an injury claim in West Hampstead will not only relieve 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
The compensation you could receive can cover not only payment for your injuries but also cover the cost of medical bills, child care costs and even home care costs, helping to reduce your stress and aid you on the road to recovery.
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 while 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.
