Claiming compensation for a careless obstruction at work

If you are an employee and are injured in the workplace then you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure that the workplace is up to a safe standard, which means removing any careless obstructions that could inflict injury, so if this has not been the case you could look to make a claim against them for negligence. By ensuring that all obstructions are removed by carrying out regular inspections, your employer can help prevent an incident, but unfortunately this isn’t always the case and people do get hurt. If you are injured at work as a result of a careless obstruction then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Where might you look to claim?

If you are injured in the workplace as a result of a careless obstruction, then there are a number of instances where you might look to claim, with some common examples including:

·         Claims against a failure to provide safe equipment

·         Claims if you have broken a bone

·         Claims if you have been left with cuts or bruises

·         Claims against a manager who failed to provide safety equipment.

Who might be at fault in this situation?

In general, if you have been left with an injury in the workplace as a result of a careless obstruction then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. This claim could be made against a number of people, including the company itself and the manager whose job it is to ensure the safety and welfare of employees. If you feel that they have been negligent in this responsibility and your health has been put at risk, then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence and a claim could be your best option.
