All workplaces can be dangerous, as each will offer its own unique potential hazards. Although it’s quite obvious that some jobs are more dangerous than others, like construction work or working around potentially dangerous machinery, for example. But it’s important to remember that it’s your employers duty of care to ensure that you don’t suffer an injury whilst working for their company.
If you’ve had to take a leave of absence after suffering from an injury that you feel was caused by employer negligence, then you may be entitled to claim compensation to help get the help and support you need.

What are your rights and more importantly what are your employer’s responsibilities?
As an employee, you have the right to work in a safe environment, you must be provided with personal protective equipment at no cost to you, you must be fully trained to use any potentiall;y dangerous equipment. Your employer must provide regular rest breaks and annual paid holiday. We can provide information on all other rights if you contact our team directly.
If your employer has not complied with your rights, then you could potentially bring a personal injury claim against them as they have not complied with strict health and safety in the workplace regulations.
Will I lose my job if I make a work accident claim?
By pursuing with a claim against your employer you wouldn’t be putting your job at risk.
