Work Accident Compensation
Revisions to health and safety laws have, in recent years, afforded a greater deal of protection for employees working in both hazardous, and non-hazardous environments. Regulations concerning adequate supervision, training and maintenance of equipment have been devised with the foremost aim of accident prevention, and creating a safer working environment for employees. Employers are also obliged to provide a duty of care for employees by assuring basic safety responsibilities are met. Failure to comply with even the most basic of statutory safety regulations constitutes gross negligence, giving rise to the possibility of an accident at work compensation claim.

Injured in The Workplace?
Accidents in the workplace are generally unavoidable. Whilst employers are obliged to carry out adequate safety audits and reviews on a regular basis, it cannot prevent accidents in their entirety, such as falls and those involving machinery. Should you suffer injury as a result of an accident in the workplace, it can significantly speed up the processing of any claim if the accident is officially reported. All employers are required to log workplace incidents within a report book, along with any on-site health assessment carried out at the time. Industrial injuries are regarded more serious in nature, therefore must also be reported to your HSE (Health and Safety Executive).
If you are the victim of a workplace incident, we can help you seek accident at work compensation for both direct, and indirect complications. Speak to one of our trained legal advisers today for immediate advice regarding your circumstances.
