Your employer has a duty to make sure that you are safe at work whilst you carry out your duties. There are various laws and regulations which require your employer to keep you safe and prevent accidents at work. If you are injured due to a breach of one of those laws or regulations by your employer, then you are entitled to make a claim.
Through the process of a claim we can establish exactly what went wrong and how – this is directly in the interest of any employer.
By seeking the appropriate cost for damages, including loss of earnings, the employer can then fully establish the seriousness of potential hazards in the work place and can then make a better informed decision about the correct health and safety procedures to implement.
