Accidents at Work
Workplace accidents are common but injured people are often unaware that it is the responsibility of their employers to ensure their safety by providing a safe place of work, safe work equipment and adequate training and supervision. You should not be concerned about making a claim as your employer cannot terminate your employment if you do so. You should report your accident as soon as you are able to do so by entering your accident details accurately in the accident book. Some of the workplace accidents that our team of Lawyers handle involve:
- Defective/dangerous equipment
- Lifting heavy objects
- Inadequate training
- Negligent work colleagues
- Inadequate work/safety clothes
- Unsafe work access including walkways and flooring.
Your employer is legally required to be insured for claims of this type and to succeed we will have to prove on your behalf that the accident was the fault of your employer and/or the fault of a fellow worker for whom your employer is legally responsible for.
