It’s a sad fact of life that accidents happen. You can suffer a severe injury anywhere and for any number of reasons.

Injuries Caused By Accidents at Work
As an employee, your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure your safety at work. A wide-ranging body of regulations control Health & Safety in the workplace, which are amended and updated annually. The majority of workplaces across the UK stay up-to date with regulations. Though, there are both workplaces and regulations that can slip through the cracks!
Your employer is legally obliged to provide safe equipment, machinery and plant along with adequately trained fellow workers.
If your employer has breached this duty of care or one of these regulations, then they may be liable if you have suffered an injury as a result (within the last 3 years). Feel free to contact us for further details on the law if you’ve had an accident at work.
