You may be aware that when you are at work, your employer has certain obligations towards your health and safety. These obligations are collectively known as a duty of care and as part of them the employer has to ensure that you are safe as you go about your daily duties.
Should your employer fail in this regard, you could become injured as the result and if this is the case, no win, no fee* solicitors could seek compensation on your behalf.
The law states that with each job role, an employer must carry out stringent checks and risk assessments to ensure that their staff are safe as they go about their responsibilities. In addition, the employer must ensure that all buildings, premises and equipment are safe for use and fit for purposes. The same laws state that if the employer were to fail in this regard and an employee became injured as a result the employee would have the right to seek out solicitors and claim compensation.
As part of the duty of care above, the employer must ensure that any practices he puts into place are suitable for his employees to carry out. These are especially important when it comes to security or finances.
For example, if any cash on the premises such as takings must be banked on a daily basis, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that this is done in such as way that his employees are protected. For this reason, many companies choose to use armoured vehicles with highly trained security staff to collect any cash from business premises.
However, were the employer to fail to provide a safe or secure method of depositing cash and his employees robbed or assaulted as they went about their duties, no win, no fee* solicitors could seek a claim for compensation for the injuries caused to those staff members.
A further example would be where the employer failed to introduce security measures such as automatic locking on doors or panic buttons in a retail area. In a burglary or raid, the staff would have no way of defending themselves or raising the alarm and as a result, although the burglary itself is of course not the employer’s fault, an exacerbation of the situation as the result of their negligence might be found to have caused more injury than if security measures were in place.
Assessing whether you would be able to make a claim for compensation is a relatively simple matter, and Accident Advice Helpline can offer a 30-second test to determine your circumstances.
