    "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 Pannal


    All employers have a duty of care towards their employees and must follow specific health and safety guidelines to stay within the law. Whether you work in a school, garden centre or car showroom, you should familiarise yourself with the applicable laws, ensuring that you make yourself aware of your rights as an employee, if necessary by contacting a lawyer in Pannal.

    Your legal rights

    As an employee, you have a legal right to work in an environment where the risks to your health and safety are properly controlled. In order to fulfil their legal obligations, your employer must carry out regular risk assessments and implement appropriate health and safety measures in response to any hazards they have identified. If you notice any health and safety issues, you have a right to raise your concerns with your employer. In doing so, you will help your employer to maintain health and safety standards within your workplace.

    Steps to take following an accident at work

    If your employer fails to protect you from an accident at work and you suffer a personal injury as a result of their negligence, you must:

    • Record your accident in your employer’s accident book;
    • Check your contract for information about sick pay; and
    • Point out the health and safety problems that led to your accident.

    If you remain concerned about health and safety issues in your workplace, you should contact the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), who are the lead body responsible for the promotion and enforcement of health and safety measures at work.

    If you are considering filing a claim against your employer, you will need to remember that the aim of compensation is to put you in the position you would have been in had your accident not happened – it is not about acquiring free money from your employer.
