Accidents at work
Have you had an injury at work? Was someone else at fault or to blame? If so, then you should contact injury solicitors in Walworth today.
When we think about an accident worthy of making a compensation claim, we generally think that these are for slips, trips and falls, or car accidents where someone else was to blame for the accident. Of course you can claim if any of the above happen to you, but there are other times when you may be entitled to make a claim that you may not have previously realised.
Accidents at work
One of these cases would be if you were injured in an accident whilst you were at work and someone else was to blame for this happening. It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that you have safe working environment at all times, and if this doesn’t happen and you have an accident then you are well within your rights to make a claim.
You should think carefully before making a claim against your employer and should ensure you have a good case to do so. This could be if any of the following have occurred:
- Insufficient or incorrect training for the job or task you are doing;
- Having equipment that you haven’t been trained correctly to use in the safest way;
- Not having any safety equipment to do the job you are doing;
- If you work in an untidy or cluttered workplace that stops you doing the job in the safest way possible;
- Not having correct risk assessments and health and safety procedures in place; or
- Unsafe or hazardous substances not being correctly stored.
If any of the above apply to your workplace and this has resulted in you becoming injured or having an accident, then you must contact an injury solicitor in Walworth to make a claim for compensation.
