Accidents at Work

Slips and Trips at Work

Around 150,000 people are injured in an accident at work every year that results in them having to take more than three days’ off work in order to recover. An accident at work can also result in countless more injuries that are less severe.

A large proportion of people who are involved in an accident at work are not to blame for their injuries. Perhaps the responsibility for your accident at work lies at the feet of your employer, a work colleague, or even an external organisation that may have been performing work on your employer’s premises. If you have suffered an accident at work that was not your fault, and resulted in you suffering a personal injury, we can help you recover the compensation that you deserve.

All businesses are obliged to provide their employees with a safe and healthy working environment, in order to prevent any of their staff experiencing an accident at work. This obligation covers everything from assessing all of the possible risks in the workplace, to providing all employees with the appropriate training to make sure they can perform their duties in a safe manner.

The significant improvement in workplace health and safety regulations over the last few years means that there are now specific written laws in place to prevent an accident at work for almost all types of job roles and industries.

When a person has been injured during an accident at work, a health and safety executive will usually be called into the premises to investigate the incident, to observe if any health and safety regulations have been breached, or if there is any ongoing danger to employees that may cause another accident at work.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of being involved in an accident at work that was not your fault, get in touch with us today, and our expert team of personal injury solicitors can advise you about claiming the compensation awards that your accident at work demands.
