You may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation if you were injured in an accident at work that was not your fault. If you would like to start legal action following your work accident you must be able to prove that your injury was caused by the negligence of your employer otherwise it will be very difficult for you to complete the claims process. Without sufficient evidence to prove a third party lies at fault, it is highly unlikely a compensation settlement will be reached. Regardless of the type of injury you suffered in the workplace, you will need to seek legal advice from a solicitor that specialises in employer liability cases.
Who is at fault for your Workplace Accident?
All employers have a duty to protect anyone, including employees, contractors and visitors, from being involved in an accident and suffering an injury. An employer must take all reasonable steps to ensure that the environment they provide for staff and visitors is safe and free from hazards. Even seemingly ‘safe’ working environments like offices are, in fact, full of hidden hazards. A risk assessment is the best way for an employer to ensure that the workplace is compliant and risk free (as much as it can be).
Not all workplaces are safe but an employer needs to take measures to ensure that all hazards are accounted for and that staff are provided with training on avoiding these in the workplace. You may be eligible to start the work accident claims process, if your employer failed in their duty to protect you from harm, but you must consult a firm of experienced solicitors as soon as possible so that your case can be assessed and liability can be analysed.
