Claims for personal injury in the workplace – Lancashire

Under the Health and Safety Act it is the responsibility of your employees to ensure that you are protected in the workplace and this means that they should identify and eliminate all possible hazards. There are a number of potential instances where you could fall victim to an injury in the workplace and if you are unfortunate enough to have this happen to you then you could be forced to undergo treatment in hospital, meaning that you could potentially lose out on your income. If you believe that this has happened to you then making a claim for compensation could be the best way of recovering any damages you have incurred.

Where could I look to make a claim?

When it comes to making a successful claim for compensation as a result of an injury in the workplace, there are a number of areas where you may be eligible, including:

·         Claims against a lack of health and safety measures

·         Claims if you have tripped on a wet surface

·         Claims against a failure to supply protective gear

·         Claims if you have tripped on an uneven surface

·         Claims against a defected piece of machinery.

Who could be at fault in this situation?

There are a number of people who could be held responsible if you suffer from an injury in the workplace, with the most common person being your employer. It is their responsibility to maintain an acceptable level of health and safety and ensure that any hazards are removed, so if you believe that this hasn’t been the case then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. You shouldn’t be made to suffer because of someone else’s negligence, which is why making a successful claim could be beneficial as it could help you recover any damages you have incurred.
