Are you a council worker who has been injured?
Even though council workers don’t work for private companies or independent firms, this doesn’t mean that they aren’t entitled to the same protection as other workers. According to the law, employers must meet certain regulations and follow the appropriate health and safety guidelines.
If your employer fails to do this, and you’re hurt as a result, you could make a claim even if you work for a government body or for your local authority. If, for example, your employer fails to fix faulty wiring, employees could be put in danger and someone could be seriously injured as a result. If they were to suffer an injury, it could be relatively easy for injury solicitors in Wadhurst to prove the employer’s liability and the injured employee could then be eligible to receive compensation for their injuries.
If you work for your local council and you’ve been hurt at work or whilst performing your duties, you too could be eligible to make a claim with injury solicitors in Wadhurst or a personal injury law firm. If you’re worried about making a claim with injury solicitors in Wadhurst against your employer, there’s no need to be.
Although making a claim against an employer can be a little bit daunting, your employer won’t be allowed to punish you or treat you any differently if you make a genuine claim. In addition to this, your claim could motivate your employer to approach their health and safety issues differently and it could result in the workplace being made safer for other employees.
