No matter what type of job you do, you could be at risk of suffering an injury whilst at work. Builders, for example, may be at risk of falling from scaffolding or being injured by heavy duty machinery. Shop workers may be in danger of getting hurt in the stockroom when carrying large boxes or pallets of stock. Even office workers can be in danger of suffering injuries if their equipment isn’t set up correctly.
In order to try and limit the risk of an accident occurring, your employer should conduct regular health and safety checks and they should always adhere to the law governing safety in the workplace. If they don’t and someone gets hurt they could face an investigation, as well as a compensation claim.
Could personal injury claim solicitors in Dorset help?
If you’ve been hurt and work and it wasn’t your fault, you should be entitled to make a claim with personal injury claim solicitors in Dorset. However, many people are concerned about making a claim against their employer as they worry that it could affect their position at work. If you fear being fired or losing a promotion, this shouldn’t prevent you from taking legal action. In fact, your employer shouldn’t be able to penalise you for making a genuine compensation claim.
