Accidents at work are common; unfortunately, whether you work in a factory, shop, farm or an office, potential dangers always exist. Every single employer has a legal responsibility to provide employees with a safe and secure workplace. This means providing:
● adequate equipment and materials
● competent co-workers
● a safe system of work
● appropriate training and supervision
Providing the right equipment such as safety clothing and training for employees to carry out their work is essential. However, many people sustain body injuries or damage to their head, hands or eyes, but they could have been easily avoided.
If you suffer illness or injury because the employer has breached their legal responsibility, this means you could be entitled to make a claim for accident compensation.
Common Accident at Work Claims
It may be that your employer is not the cause of your accident. However, your employer still has a duty of care and they will still be liable for the negligence caused by something in the workplace or another employee. At Ashwood Solicitors, we have dealt with many cases of injuries sustained in the workplace, ranging from minor slips and trips to catastrophic accidents.
Safe working practices aren’t always followed by companies and their safety equipment isn’t always in date or up to scratch. This could leave workers with serious injuries or illnesses, leading to loss of earnings and sometimes even loss of life.
