Employers have a duty of care towards their employees when they are doing the work that they are being asked to do. If you have been injured because of the negligence of your employers then you can claim compensation. An injury solicitor in Petersfield and Accident Advice Helpline will give you advice and information to help you to claim the compensation which you are entitled to for the accident that you have had.
Are workplace accidents avoidable?
Unfortunately accidents within the workplace are a relatively common occurrence and they can happen in every kind of working environment. All work places have their own set of risks and hazards. If these hazards and risks are ignored they can result in injuries. All employers have a legal duty to do what they can to ensure that their employees have a safe environment in which to do the work that they are required to do. Employers are legally expected to do everything that they possibly can to make the risk of any accidents as minimal as possible. One thing employers might have to do is to regularly check machinery and provide all staff with regular appropriate training to enable them to use the machinery safely. If the employer fails to protect their employees from accidents then they can be held responsible and in breach of health and safety legislation. If you have been injured because of a workplace accident that was not your fault you can claim compensation.
