Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, your employer has a legal obligation to provide you with a safe and secure working environment. This obligation extends from carrying out full risk assessments to providing you with adequate training and personal protective equipment.
Determine whether you qualify for work accident compensation
If you have suffered an injury as a result of a trip at work in London and you believe your injury was caused by the negligence of your employer, you should be eligible to make an accident at work claim. If, on the other hand, you have suffered an injury as a result of your own carelessness, you will not be able to make a claim unless you can prove that your negligence was due to a lack of instruction or supervision.
Let us support your accident at work claim
If you are considering making a claim for a trip at work in London, you may have reservations about suing your employer for negligence. If you have a good relationship with your employer, you may feel concerned about losing your job, affecting your prospects for promotion or entering into a highly personal dispute with your employer.
In many cases, work accident claims can be resolved through negotiation with your employer’s insurance company, but in order to go down this route, you will need to provide evidence in support of your claim. Statements from witnesses, photographs of the accident scene and copies of your medical notes can all help you to prove that you deserve compensation from your employer. If you cannot produce any of the aforementioned evidence, one of the personal injury lawyers here at Accident Advice Helpline should be able to obtain the evidence required to substantiate your claim.
If you make a successful claim, your employer’s liability insurance provider will pay for your compensation settlement, which means that your employer will not be penalised for your actions.
