Accident at Work Solicitors Coventry
Find out how much your personal injury claim may be worth
Over the years, new rules and regulations have been put in place to reduce accidents at work; however, accidents do still happen. Many employees are subject to suffering injured as the result of accidents at work, some of which are fatal accidents. Most of these accidents could have been avoided by employers implementing the correct measures and procedures to minimise the risk of an accident at work from taking place. If you have sustained an injury at work as a result of an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make a “no win, no fee” personal injury claim or industrial disease claim against your employer.
If it can be established that someone else is responsible for your injuries, such as your employer, a colleague, or a company performing work at your place of work. In that case, you may have the basis of a claim for compensation.
Your Employers Responsibilities
Employers are obligated by law to provide safe work conditions and a healthy environment to prevent employees from suffering an injury or illness.
