    "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."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Charlbury

    Workers can contact a personal injury lawyer to claim compensation if an accident occurs in the workplace. It is important to provide evidence to prove that injuries were caused through no fault of their own.

    Every personal injury claim has its own unique set of circumstances. This means that some workers will receive a pay out in a few months whilst others may have to wait a bit longer.  In most instances, a case is settled without the need to attend court. In cases where a personal injury lawyer is unable to reach a satisfactory agreement with the third party, a court hearing will be necessary.

    Work injury claims

    An employer is responsible for carrying out regular risk assessments to uncover any possible dangers in the workplace. It is important to identify problems such as leaks in the plumbing, pipes or tank, loose or damaged carpet or trailing electrical wires. These hazards should then be repaired or corrected without delay. It is also important to prevent accidents from occurring. For example, a dimly lit hallway could cause someone to lose their footing. Stronger lighting would keep an employee safe.

    Clear and reliable advice

    A personal injury lawyer is highly experienced with workplace accidents. Such a professional will recover compensation for each and every client. An employer should provide a safe and secure working environment.

    • The workplace should always be clean, tidy and safe.
    • All machinery and work tools should be regularly tested.
    • Workers should be provided with the correct tools or machinery to carry out duties safely.
    • If necessary, protective clothing should be provided.

    Although an employer is responsible for staff, this does not mean that people can behave carelessly. If coffee is spilled on the floor, it is important to wipe it up before someone is hurt. If the spillage is reported to management but appropriate measures are not taken to make the area safe, a personal injury lawyer will hold an employer responsible should an accident occur.
