The workplace is usually a safe environment where you wouldn’t expect anything to go wrong, but it can also be very stressful and with so many employees having conflicting thoughts, there is room for negligence to occur. If you believe someone else has caused you to have an injury, then it is within your rights to make a claim against them.

How can an accident in the workplace occur?

An accident can occur at any time in a new workplace, with some common examples of where these might occur including:

·         Accidents which involve electrical equipment

·         Accidents sustained on an uneven surface

·         Accidents caused by unsecured appliances in the workplace

·         Accidents caused by general negligence around the workplace

·         Accidents which occur as a result of poor training

Who could have been at fault?

If you believe that you have been the victim of negligence in a new workplace or that you have sustained an injury then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. There are a number of people who could be at fault in this situation, but in most cases the blame would lie with your manager who inadequately trained you. It is important to remember that you must be able to prove their guilt in order for it to be successful.
