If you are at work and you suddenly have an accident, then you need to prove that the accident was through the fault and negligence of someone else. It might not be your boss’s fault, but maybe the fault of one of your work colleagues or a visitor to your workplace.
Every boss has a legal duty to make sure the working environment is safe for their staff, and also people who visit the premises. They have to make sure that all machinery is properly maintained, that work stations have lots of room for staff to perform their duties, and that the staff have to have the correct and proper tools with the correct and proper protection in place to enable them to carry out the work safely. The workplace generally should be kept in a clean and tidy condition.
What is protective clothing?
Protective clothing is very important as it can prevent you suffering an injury at work. Things like, goggles, hard hats, safety gloves, safety boots and even high visibility clothing that makes you stand out are all aids to try to avoid an accident occurring at work
Cut Related Accident at Work
Lots of the accidents that happen at work are cut related, and the severity of these cuts can vary greatly from a cut finger to serious damage caused to the body and limbs.
If someone else causes your cut accident at work, you may be able to claim compensation and the amount of compensation you receive for your accident depends not only on how severe the cut is but also on the after effects the injury has on your life.
Even if you have a bad cut to your finger, this can stop you carrying out your normal daily tasks and make your life very difficult for you. Every injury claim is different, and two people can have the same cut but can have very different after effects, so each accident at work needs its own careful attention to get you the most compensation possible for your circumstances.
Taking all aspects into account is very important, and that is why you should get proper legal advice from the solicitors in Evesham at Accident Advice Helpline.
