Accidents in the workplace are more common than is sometimes realised, although going to work is a lot safer than it used to be many years ago. All UK employers have to follow health and safety rules to ensure that your working environment is not a hazardous place to be, and failure to do so could mean that workers are injured in accidents that are not their fault. If this happens to you, and you think a solicitor in Whitechapel could help you claim compensation, call Accident Advice Helpline today.
