Employers Liability with Baker Hardman Solicitors
If you have sustained an injury at work because of an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make a “no win, no fee” claim against your employer. Our solicitors are here to support you and help you get the compensation that you deserve.
What are Your Employers’ Responsibilities?
Your employer has a legal duty to provide safe working conditions, including health and safety training. Any equipment used should always be maintained and remains safe. Where necessary, your employer should provide correct protective clothing and complete risk assessments so you can carry out your duties safely. If you have sustained an injury at work, because your employer has not provided the above, you may be able to make a claim. You may even be able to claim if a workplace accident made an existing injury or condition worse.
There are different types of work accidents, some include:
- Falls and slips (including, tripping over wires across a floor.)
- Falling from ladders, rooftops, trees, or scaffolding.
- Back and neck injuries from lifting heavy items.
- Faulty machinery or equipment
- Burns, if safety clothing and glasses are not provided.
- Repetitive strains
- Hearing loss from loud machinery, and vehicles.
