    It is a universally accepted fact that certain job roles carry with them more risk than others. For example, a person serving in the military would be statistically more likely to be injured in their daily duties than a person who worked as a dentist.

    Every job is different and any person who takes on a role which is potentially risky often does so with the knowledge that their job carries more likelihood of injury.

    However, what they should also have is the knowledge that their employer has a duty of care towards their safety. Were their employer to breach this duty of care and the employee sustain injury as a result, the injured employee would have the right to make a claim for compensation which they could do by contacting no win, no fee’ Stratford-on-Avon solicitors.

    Assault

    As has already been mentioned, different job roles carry with them more risk of harm than others. In many cases, the responsibility lies with the employee themselves to carry out their duties with their own safety and the safety of their co-workers in mind. However, just as much responsibility lies with the employer.

    For example, many jobs involve working with the public. There is little legislating which can be done for the general public. Nobody knows how a certain person will react to certain situations and therefore little can be done to risk assess the job in question. Consider a job within a health care facility where people with learning disabilities are being treated. Assault within the workplace might be common because aggression is a factor within the patients and the employee would be aware of that as they took on the job role. Therefore, it might be considered that being assaulted would simply be a risk of the job.

    However, if the employer were to cut staffing levels to save money resulting in too few staff to manage the needs of the patients, and a staff member were assaulted by a patient, the situation changes. In this case, no win, no fee’ Stratford-on-Avon solicitors might seek a claim for compensation based on the fact that the employer was indirectly responsible for the injuries caused to the employee as a result of the decision they made to cut staffing levels.
