If you have been injured in an accident at work in the Manchester region that wasn’t your fault, you might be able to claim compensation. We understand that the idea of making a claim against your employer could be daunting, but you are actually claiming from their insurance policy rather than an individual. What’s more, if it was negligence or the failure of a process that caused your injury, your claim may well ensure that things change at work and no one else has to go through what you have experienced as a result. If your injury has caused you to lose income due to time off work, whether that be through paying out for medical treatment or for items and services that help your recovery, you may be able to include these costs in your claim too.
There are many different kinds of accidents that can happen in the workplace or whilst you are working on location for your employer. Employers have a legal duty of care for their workers to take reasonable action to protect them from hazards in the workplace, which are outlined in The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Employer responsibilities in this area include:
• Conducting risk assessments on work activities to identify the measures needed to comply with the Act and other health and safety guidelines.
• Developing processes and procedures for workers to keep them safe.
• Maintaining all equipment used by workers.
• Providing adequate instruction, training, information and supervision for employees so they can carry out their duties safely.
• Maintaining the place of work to ensure it’s a safe environment for people to use and carry out their duties. Adequate facilities must be provided.
• Taking into account the physical and mental welfare of employees, including potential workplace stress.
If your Manchester employer has failed to carry out their duty of care and you have been injured in an accident at work as a result, you may be able to claim compensation.
The amount of compensation you will be eligible for if your claim is successful will depend on the circumstances of your accident, how severely you were injured and the costs or expenses you have incurred as a result of the injury. You must have had your accident at work within the last three years to qualify for an accident at work claim.
The things that you may be able include in your accident at work claim include:
