Surrey is an affluent county in the south-east of England on the outskirts of London, densely populated, with an approximate 1.1 million people living there. Many people who work in Surrey commute in from London and further afield as there are very good connections on the trains and Surrey is connected to major roads such as the M23, M25 and M3. If you have been injured at work, you many consider making a Surrey accident at work claim and seeking compensation.
Workplace accidents and employer responsibility
If you work in an office, your employer has a responsibility to ensure you are sat at your desk correctly to avoid a bad back, RSI or carpel tunnel. If you work in construction your employer is responsible for making sure you are not exposed to harmful substances or noises. Wherever you work, regardless of industry, your employer must follow Health and Safety laws to keep you safe.
Other injuries you may have sustained may have occurred from a slip, trip or fall. You may have been hit by a vehicle or experienced an injury in a different circumstance altogether. Many workplace accidents happen after Health and Safety procedures have been dismissed or followed incorrectly and this negligence can lead to serious injuries.
If you have been injured after an accident at work from no fault of your own you may be wondering whether to make a claim and whether you would be eligible. Our team may be able to help you by seeking compensation on your behalf with a Surrey accident at work claim.
