Using a personal injury lawyer in Chobham – occupational accidents
Occupational accidents are slightly different – in that it is often an employer who was at fault. In practice, the employer may be a company or organisation rather than an individual and the claim may be handled by an insurance company that operates an employer’s liability insurance policy.
The causes of the accident will be looked at in detail and this may include evidence arising from the days or even weeks leading up the accident. There may be a failure to properly risk assess a task or to put together a safe system of work. There may be faulty equipment or equipment that was simply the wrong equipment for that particular job. Sometimes, it is amazing how simple the causes of an occupational accident can be and in other cases it is very complex.
Using a personal injury lawyer in Chobham – slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls can happen anywhere. If they happen when you are at work then they would be classed as a workplace accident but if they happen in a public place (the street for example) then you would be making a claim from the organisation that had responsibility for making that area safe for the public. They probably have a public liability insurance policy that you would be claiming from.
