    Southend-On-Sea accident at work


    Your employer is under a duty to take care of your safety in the workplace. This includes providing you with a safe working environment, adequate training and supervision, and suitable safety equipment and clothing. If your employer fails to provide you with any of these things, and you are involved in a Southend-on-Sea accident at work, you may be able to make a claim against your employer. Often, accidents at work result in significant injuries, and if you need to seek extensive medical treatment and take lengthy periods off work as a consequence of your employer’s actions, it is only right that you exercise your right to receive full and fair compensation.

    Who you can claim against

    Your employer is obliged to take all reasonable precautions to protect your safety. However, your colleagues also owe you a duty of care. This means that they must not act in a way that might put you at risk of an injury. If your employer or a colleague makes a mistake, and you sustain an injury in a Southend-on-Sea accident at work, your employer will be liable for your resulting losses.

    Your employer is also obliged to possess liability insurance. This means that if you receive compensation as a result of making a claim, your employer’s insurance company will pay out for your settlement.

    What you can claim for

    When making a Southend-on-Sea accident at work claim, you will be able to receive compensation for all your losses, including:

    • Your injury.
    • Lost earnings.
    • Home alterations, if these are necessary.
    • Care costs, if you need help around the home.
    • Private medical treatment charges, if you are unable to access timely treatment on the NHS.
    • Psychological damage resulting from your injury.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, our experienced personal injury solicitors will ensure that you receive the full amount of compensation from your employer – after all, you deserve to receive compensation for all the losses that have arisen from your accident.
