Compensation for a hand injury at work

The workplace is one of the biggest areas where we deal with personal injury claims and as this is an area where you tend to spend a great deal of time, it’s important that it’s also an area where you feel completely safe and secure. The working environment is one area where a number of hazards can lead to potential health issues, and if you do find yourself in this situation then it’s important that your employer recognises any potential hazards and deals with them appropriately.

By law, your employer needs to provide you with a safe and secure environment to work within and if you feel that they have failed to do this, then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred. 

Whose negligence is responsible for an injury of this type?

In general, any negligence within the workplace is directly the responsibility of your employer whose job it is to ensure that every employee has the right to work in a safe and secure environment. Your employer must provide you with adequate safety training and equipment, to ensure that you are able to successfully fulfil your job role and if they fail to do this then you could consider a compensation claim against them to cover your costs.
