Injuries at work are extremely common. From faulty equipment to inadequate training, from repetitive strains to lifting injuries, from slips & trips to colleague negligence, our personal injury solicitors have experience in claiming compensation for all types of workplace injury.
The law protects employees who are injured at work as a result of the negligence of their employers or colleagues. There are a great deal of rules regarding health and safety that your employer must comply with – or face the consequences. If you have been injured at work and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation. Claiming compensation for an injury at work won’t prejudice your working relationship with your employer as all claims will be met out of their insurance.
Among the most common causes of workplace injury are:
- Dangerous working practices
- Lifting heavy items
- Faulty, worn, out-dates or unsuitable working equipment
- Tripping hazards
- Spilt products or materials
- Inadequate training
- Colleague negligence
