If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to claim compensation if you employer did not carry out the necessary precautions to prevent the accident from happening.
Your employer is legally bound to ensure they take reasonable care of their employee’s health and safety while you are under their employment. This means that they must ensure their employees are fit to carry out their job role, and more importantly, to ensure that any equipment and tools they provide for their staff are adequate and safe.
Furthermore, if you have been injured by another member of staff, your employer could be held ‘vicariously liable’ for that person’s actions if they have endangered you or your fellow colleagues.
If you feel as though you have a case to bring forward under employer liability, it is imperative that you have the correct legal guidance and advice to help manage your claim. In addition, an employer will always look for ways to pass the responsibility, which makes it even more vital to have an expert personal injury lawyer to fight your case.
