    It does not matter where you live, whether that’s in Melbourne or anywhere else within the UK, you still have to work, unless you have income from another source. Your employer has a legal duty to make sure that your work environment is safe.

    Most businesses, local authorities and other responsible parties take this very seriously and do all they can to ensure the health and safety of all their staff.

    Sometimes though that is not enough, accidents still happen and if you have been injured in one that was not your fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim and you may want the help of the personal injury lawyer in Melbourne.
