Personal injury in the workplace accident claim facts

An accident in work place is a too common thing in today’s world.  Injuries which occur after an accident in work place can be anything from minor physical injuries, such as cuts and grazes, right through to severe and serious afflictions that can tragically leave people unable to work for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately the worst thing about an accident in work place is that the majority of the time they could be completely avoided.  The biggest reason today for an accident in work place is employers not taking time to carry out health and safety regulations.

If an employer fails to carry out basic health and safety regulations and an employee is hurt in an accident in work place because of this then that employer becomes at fault and to blame for the accident.

An example scenario

Recently we dealt with a claim for a client of Accident Advice Helpline.  This person was hurt in an accident in work place when his employer failed to give proper and up to date COSH training and proper protective equipment to staff who were working with chemical substances.  The workforce were given gloves to wear when handling the substances but were not given protective eye equipment in the event of somebody being splashed.  They were also not given proper COSH training covering the dangers of the substances or what to do and how to act if an accident did occur.

Unfortunately an accident did occur.  The client of Accident Advice Helpline was splashed in the eyes by this chemical substance and suffered severe injuries.  Himself and his colleagues had not been trained in what first aid action to take in this event and so unfortunately they acted in a way that made the injuries worse.  The employee was not at fault, his colleagues were not at fault but the employer was at fault for the following reasons:

  •          Failing to provide adequate protective clothing and equipment.
  •          Failing to give relevant and adequate COSH training
  •          Failing to carry out risk assessment.

For the above reasons the employer was responsible, was to blame and was at fault for this particular accident in work place.  The employee contacted Accident Advice Helpline and we sorted out his claim and he was awarded the cash compensation he needed after his accident in work place.
