If you are an employer then you will know that you have to do everything you possibly can to ensure the safety and health of your staff.
It doesn’t matter if your staff is part time or full time, been with you 25 years or only started last week. It is your duty of care to make sure that the work environment is safe, that the equipment is maintained appropriately, that all staff are fully trained to do their jobs adequately and safely and that appropriate risk assessments are completed when tasks are being performed.
If you fail to cover any of these areas then you run the risk that a member of your staff will be injured in a workplace accident and they may request the services of an injury solicitor in Stretton to make a claim for compensation against you.
Accident Advice Helpline
Your employee might do something even better than hiring an injury in Stretton. Rather than choose an injury solicitor in Stretton, they might decide to hire us. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our injury solicitors have been helping people make claims for personal injuries for over 15 years. We have helped thousands of people make successful claims against their employers who have failed to ensure their safety. Do you really want us to help a member of your staff make a claim against you?
No matter where you work there is a chance that you can be injured and it is always the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the risk of accident and injury is minimised. Failure to do this can result in an injury solicitor starting proceedings against you on behalf of their client and winning compensation, which you or your insurance provider will have to cover.
This can be a costly and time-consuming situation, one which should be avoided at all times. Therefore, it is imperative that employers get it right in the first place and avoid an injury solicitor having to take these steps to help an injured member of your staff.
Our injury solicitors have helped with numerous cases, for example:
- Broken legs where clients have fallen from ladders which were not fit for purpose.
- Amputated limbs caused by faulty machinery.
- Slipped discs caused by falls on wet floors.
- Industrial disease cases where personal protection equipment has not been provided.
- Back and spinal injuries caused by failure to provide manual handling training.
- Repetitive strain injury caused as a result of risk assessments not being completed.
