Accidents at Work
Almost 1.5 million working people suffer from work-related illnesses each year.
While some of these injuries are minor, others can have a long-lasting impact on your day-to-day lifestyle, your physical and mental health, and even your ability to work in the future, which can lead to financial strain through loss of earnings.
If you want to claim compensation for an accident at work, it’s important you can prove the accident was someone else’s fault. Regardless of the type of work you do or who you work for, UK law sets out lots of rules for employers to follow which are designed to protect you while you work.
Your employer has a legal duty of care to maintain a safe working environment and stop accidents from happening. This includes providing adequate training for staff and providing correct safety wear/equipment where needed. Your employer is also required by law to have Employer’s Liability Insurance, so they are insured in the event of an accident. This insurance can be used to cover compensation claims from employees who have been injured at work.
