    Runnymede Accident at Work

    It is the duty of your employer to ensure that your workplace is as safe as it can be. If your employer fails in their duty of care to you and you are injured in a Runnymede accident at work, you may be able to claim compensation.

    Creating a winning Runnymede accident at work case

    When you file a Runnymede accident at work claim, you will need to prove your employer was negligent and thus responsible for your accident. Typically, there are four requirements for a claim based on negligence:

    • Element #1: Duty of care
      Your first step is to determine whether your employer owed you a duty of care. This is simple, as your employer has a legal duty to ensure your health and safety by protecting you from the risks that may arise from your work activities.
    • Element #2: Breach of the duty of care
      Next, you must establish whether your employer breached their duty of care by doing, or not doing, something that a reasonable employer would have done under similar circumstances. Your employer may have breached their duty of care by, for example, by failing to undertake risk assessments to identify hazards in the workplace.
    • Element #3: Causation
      The third element requires you to show that your employer’s negligence actually caused your injury. For example, you must prove that the slippery floor in your workplace caused you to suffer the Runnymede accident at work that led to your injury.
    • Element #4: Damages
      The final element of a negligence case is damages, which requires you to prove that you suffered an injury and/or financial losses as a result of your accident. You will be able to do this with the aid of medical reports and documentary evidence of your financial losses.
