Your employer has a statutory and common law duty to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries being sustained in the workplace. If your employer fails and as a result you are injured at work, they will be liable to pay compensation for the injury as well as all associated financial losses.
Lex will negotiate the maximum payment you are eligible for while you recover and return to work.
You would be able to claim if you have suffered an injury at work considering there are no health and safety measures taken. If you were the cause of an accident, but as a result of damaged equipment resulting in the injury becoming worse, you would still be eligible to claim. You would be able to claim if the accident resulted in an existing injury becoming worse.
There are measures that the work must take to ensure there is safety in the work place. You employer would also owe a duty with measures being taken to ensure the work setting is a safe place. Some key measures that must be in force are:
- Risk assessments
- The suitable equipment is given to ensure safety
