Accident at Job Compensation Claim

Workplace accidents are among the most common types of compensation claims that we have to deal with in fact, on a daily basis the majority of enquiries that we get involve accidents which happen in and around the workplace. 

There are fairly substantial laws in place which govern how your employer should act towards you in terms of your safety and security within a workplace and these should be adhered to and abided by at all times. If you feel that your employer has failed to do this then you could look to make a claim for compensation against them to cover any additional costs that you have sustained.

Who could be responsible for an accident at my job?

In the majority of situations the person who will be responsible for any accident that you have in your job is your employer. These accidents will mainly be caused when your employer has failed to provide adequate training, staffing or safety precautions and equipment within your working environment. If they have failed in any of these ways then they can become the direct target of your compensation claim.
