Mansfield is a town in the county of Nottinghamshire, over to the western side of the region. It is a market town and has a population just shy of 100,000 people. Many locals work in the town itself, while others have jobs in nearby areas including Nottingham itself. The overwhelming majority of workers never have accidents while doing their jobs, but you may have found this article precisely because you want to know about Mansfield accident at work compensation.
While the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 has reduced the number of work accidents considerably since it was brought in, things do still happen. It is perhaps unlikely accidents will be completely eradicated. However, most employers go above and beyond their requirements under the law to keep their workers as safe as possible.
How can you tell whether Mansfield accident at work compensation could be payable?
The key element is to determine whether someone else was negligent. In the case of a work accident, your employer may potentially have been negligent in not fulfilling their duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
If this is the case, you may have a chance to seek compensation with the help of a specialised lawyer. In some cases, another worker may have been negligent, or you may not be clear on whether someone was responsible or could have prevented what happened to you. To dispel any confusion you might be feeling, getting a legal representative to assess a likely claim is always going to be the best idea and course of action to take.
