Newark and Sherwood accident claim solicitors
Whilst there are many complex elements to UK employment law, there is one very simple facet: your employer has a legal obligation to ensure your health and safety as you perform your duties. That means making sure that any and all buildings are safe, that the equipment you’re using is safe and that all other measures are being taken to ensure that you can carry out your workplace responsibilities safely.
In return, you have a duty of care to your colleagues and any members of the public you come into contact with.
Should it be found that your employer has been negligent in their duties, has failed to protect you and as a result, you have sustained an injury then you may make a claim for compensation from Newark and Sherwood accident claim solicitors.
Whether you’re a long or short distance delivery driver or use a company car, when you’re driving it during working hours, you have the same responsibilities as any other road user: to operate as safely as possible, to maintain the Highway Code and to drive in a way that is courteous to other road users and pedestrians. Should you fail to do so and an accident occurs, you may be held personally liable for any injuries which befall a third party.
In the same way, when your employer provides you with a vehicle for work purposes, you have the right to expect that that vehicle will be safe, fit for purpose and road worthy. In order to ensure this, your employer should make regular checks of the vehicle, undertake regular servicing and guarantee a full service history before allowing the vehicle to be driven on the open highway.Open Claim Calculator
