    Employers have certain duties towards employees which, if they do not comply with, and an employee is injured through their fault or negligence, could mean having to deal with an injury lawyer in Louth.

    Health and Safety is paramount to avoiding the use of an injury lawyer Louth

    Aside from standard employment law, employers are required to protect the health and safety of employees while they are at work and most of what they need to do is common sense. As well as creating a safe working environment, they also need to make sure that the workplace is kept in a tidy condition and make sure the employees have enough room to work in. Failure to do so can create problems for them in the long term and may mean they have to face using an injury lawyer in Louth.

    The duties don’t stop there

    There are many things that can cause an accident at work. A few examples are:

    • Lack of protection for employees working at height.
    • Lack of breaks.
    • Spillages not cleaned up.
    • Lack of workspace to be able to work comfortably.
    • Excessive twisting and turning.
    • Excessive gripping.
    • Excessive vibration.
    • Obstructions in walkway.
    • Machinery not working properly.
    • Staff not trained properly.
    • Lack of protective clothing which the employer has to provide, free of charge.

    These are just a sample of the things that could be the reason for an accident. If any of them cause you to be injured in an accident, your employer could be liable for a personal injury claim and the employee may use an injury lawyer in Louth.

    Ex Employees

    An ex-employee could become ill after they have left employment, but can still attribute the illness to the time they worked for your employer. For example, this could happen with a small amount of chemicals in the air, which would not affect a person in the short term, but over a period of years could have a bad effect on their health.
