Accidents at Work
If you have been injured in an accident at work which was not your fault, then you should speak to an injury lawyer in Greeba today about making a financial claim for compensation against your employer.
How an injury lawyer in Greeba can help
An injury lawyer in Greeba can help you make a claim for compensation. Making a claim for a personal injury can be a time consuming and complicated process, not to mention emotionally draining, especially if you are making the claim against an employer.
In the cases of claims against employers an injury lawyer in Greeba will need to establish if your employer (or former employer) is indeed responsible (and therefore liable) for your accident. This is what can sometimes prove to be slightly more complicated than in other cases, and often results in the time consuming element.
An injury lawyer in Greeba will need to hear your side of the story – where was the accident, what led to the accident, how you were injured and why you think your employer might be responsible. For example, if you fell off a ladder whilst at work the injury lawyer in Greeba will ask you whether this formed part of your usual daily activities. If not, then it might be argued that your employer put you at risk asking you to do something that you were not used to doing, and no doubt had not been properly trained to do. Equally, it might be the case that the ladder provided by your employer was faulty in some way, and therefore your employer, whether knowingly or not, is liable for any resulting injuries and accidents because they placed you in the way of harm.
Claims against employers
All employers, regardless of the industry in which they work, and the size of the business they run, or the number of employees they have on their pay roll have a duty of care to the people who work for them. This means that they are in charge of ensuring that appropriate risk assessments are performed on all vulnerable staff members (for example, pregnant women, people with disabilities, and those who do not have English as their first language), that all appropriate training is offered, that the work environment is safe, and that all equipment and machinery that is likely to be used is checked regularly and maintained or replaced as and when needed.
If your employer fails to perform any of these duties and you are injured as a result, then your injury lawyer in Greeba will be able to make a strong case for their liability, and you will no doubt win your claim, therefore receiving the financial compensation that you are due.
