All employers have a legal duty to comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act, which sets out the steps they must take to safeguard your physical and psychological well-being.
If your employer fails to adhere to these regulations, and you are involved in an accident in your workplace as a result of his or her actions, you will have a right to file a claim for personal injury compensation through our team of accident solicitors in Wimborne.
Taking action against your employer following an accident at work
Following suffering an accident at work, you will need to ensure that you make a record of your injuries in your employer’s accident book.
If your employer does not have an accident book, you should create a written account of your accident and send it to your line manager. If need be, you should also ensure that your employer has reported your accident to the Health and Safety Executive.
By law, your employer must possess insurance to cover the cost of accident at work claims.
If your employer has taken out such coverage, you should be able to find a certificate with the name of their insurance company in a prominent place in your workplace. If you can find this certificate, you make a note of the details or, if you are too ill to return to work, ask a colleague to do so on your behalf.
In doing so, you will help our solicitors in Wimborne to file a compensation claim on your behalf.
