When you go to work it stands to reason that you should feel safe and sound – after all, your employers have rules and regulations that they should follow. Of course, accidents do happen and no-one can really promise that they won’t – but what you should be assured of is that you won’t be injured or the victim of an accident due to someone else’s negligence. If you are injured at work and you feel that it is down to someone else, then it could be worth contacting an injury solicitor to see if you are entitled to make a claim for compensation.
Assaulted at Work
Being injured at work is not something you would expect and it is something that is very rare – but it does happen. Of course your employer can’t be responsible for the behaviour of someone else, but if they haven’t taken the correct security procedures to keep everyone safe then they could be responsible and therefore, you have a right to sue them for compensation. If this is something that has happened to you, then contacting an injury solicitor could help you with the correct procedure to follow to make this happen.
Falls From Height
If you work in an industry or work environment that requires you to work from a height then you should have access to the right safety equipment to stop you being injured. Of course your employer can’t be responsible if you acted irresponsibly or without their instruction, but if they are to blame in anyway then you could be entitled to compensation, to make up for the injury you have suffered.
Falling Over Hazards
A work place should be kept clean and tidy, with correct procedures to follow in order to keep the whole place clutter free. If you trip over a hazard that was not properly marked then you could have a chance to claim compensation – after all, you would expect to be able to walk around your work place without fear of injury.
