Work accident in Tower Hamlets
Every day people are injured whilst they are work. It doesn’t matter what industry they work in, what environment, or what they actually do, everyone is at risk of potentially serious harm if they are involved in an accident.
All employers have a legal obligation, a duty of care, to their employees to ensure that they are kept safe and free from harm. While this may not always be possible, the vast majority of incidents can, and indeed should, be avoided.
If you think your work accident in Tower Hamlets could have been avoided, and you have been injured as a result, then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Who can claim?
Anyone who is injured in an accident can make a claim. It doesn’t matter what type of work contract you have, you could be full time or part time, work in an office, or on a site, you may even work in a van or other vehicle. Even if you are visiting a place of work, for example, if you are an inspector or even attending for an interview or meeting, you may be able to make a claim if you have been injured. Employers also have a duty to ensure that visitors and other people with legitimate reason to be on site are kept safe from harm.
Such duties mean that it is essential that the building and premises, both internal and external are kept well maintained. This means that pathways are even and kept free from rubbish or other clutter. That stairwells are well lit, and handrails are secure.
You can also make a claim if you think you have been diagnosed with a condition that may have been caused by your work environment. While this may not have been as a result of an accident, it can be as a result of work place exposure, meaning it will be treated as an industrial disease. Our solicitors can help you make a claim for conditions such as eczema, asthma, lung cancer and arthritis. Whatever the situation, please contact us to discuss your case in more detail.
