    If you’re attacked while carrying out your work duties by somebody you’re charged with looking after, there will be a chance that you may be able to use the services of a top personal injury lawyer in Kempton Park to sue your employer for personal injury compensation, if it could be proved that the organisation you worked for had failed to take adequate steps to ensure your safety.

    This will be true even if you work in an environment where the risk of being attacked is higher than might usually be expected, such as in a mental health institution or a prison. You may also be able to launch a personal injury case if you sustain an injury after being attacked while carrying out your duties as a social worker or a substance abuse counsellor. Just because you’re working with people who might be more likely to attack you, your right to claim recompense after being injured after being attacked will not be affected.

    Work-related physical attacks and how a personal injury lawyer in Kempton Park can help

    Some workers are more likely to be attacked than others. Nurses who work on a psychiatric unit are probably considerably more likely to be physically attacked than bank cashiers, for example. Employers know this, which means, if they employ people who are more likely to be put into harm’s way, they have a responsibility to put checks in place that will ensure the safety of their workers.

    If an employee at any such organisation were to be attacked and a personal injury lawyer in Kempton Park could prove that the incident could have been avoided or the person’s injuries would have been less severe if management acted differently, there could be grounds for a personal injury claim.

    For example, a prison or a mental health institution that sent one person to deal with an individual who was known to be violent could face action if that person were to be attacked. In this type of situation, management would have had a responsibility to make sure that the worker was accompanied as a way of ensuring that if anything were to happen, the situation could be dealt with.
