Taking legal action after an accident at work
When accidents occur in the workplace, employers should always take them seriously. Even if an employee sustains only minor injuries, the incident should be reported and steps taken to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
In order to protect workers, there are numerous health and safety laws which apply to workplaces. However, some employers fail to adhere to these regulations and people can get hurt as a result.
Even when vigilant employers implement the appropriate safety guidelines, it doesn’t always prevent accidents occurring. If you work in the area and you’ve been hurt whilst performing your duties, you may want to find out more about taking action with injury solicitors in Furners Green.

If you’ve sustained an injury at work, you will need to show that you weren’t responsible for it in order to be able to make a claim with solicitors in Furners Green.

Alternatively, if the workplace wasn’t properly maintained and you were hurt as a result, solicitors in Furners Green could help you to make a claim against your employer.
