Health & Safety at Work: When Employers Are Negligent

Going through an accident at work can be traumatic and shocking. What’s more, it can take a long time for you to get your life back on track, especially if you have suffered from a severe accident and your doctor has advised that you cannot return to work right away. This is why, after you have sought medical advice, you should always enquire about receiving compensation if you have had an accident at work.
Unfortunately, it is quite normal for people to suffer from severe accidents at work. An estimated 0.6 million accidents happened at work from 2016 to 2017. But just because it is quite a common thing to go through, this does not mean that you should hold back when it comes to seeking compensation.
It can be quite hard to tell if you are entitled to compensation or not. A lot of factors come in to play and in the heat of the moment after your accident, you may not be thinking as clearly as you should be. That is why it is always best practice to contact a lawyer who specialises in workplace injuries. That way, you will get expert advice and understand how you should be moving forward.
You can also look through our useful infographic below, too. It highlights all of the different ways in which your employer is responsible for your health and safety at work. It also shows how your employer may be negligible for the accident you may have suffered from.
