    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Working with people who have the potential to turn violent can be a risky business; but as long as the environment in which you’re doing your job is well managed, you should be able to expect that your safety will not be under threat. If you are employed in any such job, you should be able to rely on your employers to make sure that you will not be put at risk of sustaining an injury that was not your fault in a violent incident.

    In fact, your employer will have a legal obligation to make sure that it does everything in its power to make sure that you do not get assaulted. If it fails in this duty, there will be a chance that you might well find yourself in a position where you can think about retaining the services of a top 100% no win no fee law firm in Gloucester if you were to be injured. You could stand to win a very substantial payout indeed, but this of course will depend on the severity of your injuries.

    Violent workplace attacks and personal injury action

    Maybe you were working as a substance abuse counsellor, when you were injured in a violent attack while doing your job. It might be on the cards that you’ll be able to take some form of action, if for example the panic alarm you were given to sound if it looked like a client was going to start behaving in a manner you found threatening failed. Under these circumstances, your employer would have had the responsibility to make sure that you were able to call for help.

    If you could prove that the fact that you were not able to sound the alarm and get the help you needed contributed to the severity of your injuries, you might well be able to sue your employer for negligence, for not ensuring that the panic alarm you were given was in good working order.

    The next steps

    If you would like to look into taking some form of 100% no win no fee personal injury action against your employer in circumstances such as those outlined above, it will be a very good idea indeed for you to pick up the phone and call Accident Advice Helpline on one of the phone numbers at the top of this web page.
