Newtown Accident Claim

0

Workers in the retail sector can be largely overlooked. The retail industry is actually one of the hardest working sectors there is and with that comes a lot of hazards to the employees that work there. Although there are many laws, rules and regulations to keep all employees safe on the premises there is always a window where an accident is possible.

Either by negligence of management or from careless colleagues an accident could happen and when it does you could be entitled to make a Newton accident claim.

What is negligence?

Being negligent to rules and regulations basically means you are not carrying out the procedures you should be. An example would be that any fire evacuation procedure would need all fire exits to be clear ready in case of an emergency. If the exits are blocked by stock or any other obstruction this is negligence.

Negligence can be conducted by anyone and it can cause serious accidents. Such as injuries obtained by someone not replacing safety locks on to machinery or overfilling shelves so that it then falls on to the next person. Either of these accidents could result in a Newton accident claim.

How to make a Newton accident claim against negligence

If you are involved in an accident due to negligence try to get some evidence of what happened. If you have a mobile phone handy this would be ideal to capture the scene of what occurred. Photographs are the best form of evidence you can have as future viewers can see for themselves what the accident scene looked like.

If any colleagues saw what happened ask them for their contact details so that later on a legal representative can contact them in order to get a statement to say what happened on the day of the accident.

Negligence is a very serious offence and could potentially get your employer into a lot of trouble. Laws and regulations are there for a reason which is to prevent accidents from happening in the work place.
