Everything you need to know about making a negligence claim in York against your employer
If you have sustained an injury because of a workplace incident you will be exploring the possibility of making a negligence claim in York. This is something a lot of people are sceptical about. They do not want to make a compensation claim against their employer, but of course they want to get the money they are entitled to. Some people fear being sacked or other repercussions. Yet this is something you really do not need to worry about, so long as you handle everything the right way. So, keep on reading to discover everything you need to know.
The first thing you need to do is make sure you have a claim to begin with. The last thing you want to do is make a negligence claim in York against your employer only to discover that you don’t have a leg to stand on. You need to be able to prove that your employer has made an error or acted negligently and this has resulted in your injury. From failing to provide the necessary training to an unsafe working environment, there are many different ways you can show that your employer is at fault.
Once you have done this you then need to make sure you report the incident to your employer and your safety representative. This is imperative. By law your employer is required to report all incidents and injuries in an accident book. If you do not inform them of the incident you could run into trouble later down the line. It is also likely that your employer will need to inform the local health and safety executive of the situation as well.
