Your employer has a legal responsibility to provide the correct equipment and inform you of the health and safety policy in the workplace.
All accidents in the workplace should be recorded and you should be paid statutory sick pay during the time you are off work.
Reportable injuries include:
Any specifically dangerous incidents that require work processes to be amended.
An injury that will stop an employee from working for 3 days
Any incidents that cause disease
If you were involved in an incident at work and believe your employer did not meet the necessary health and safety procedures you could potentially make a claim for compensation.
You may believe that making a claim against your employer will have an impact on your job or financial position, which shouldn't be the case. It's important that the cause of the accident is identified and the problem resolved so that another individual doesn't experience the same injury.
We at Active Legal have a wealth of experience dealing with accident at work claims and offer a professional approach.
During the claims process we will consider all aspects of the incident, including your injuries and loss of earnings and expenses, in order to calculate the compensation we believe is owed.
From our office in Sutton Coldfield, our specialist solicitors will keep you up to date with the progress of your work injury claim and provide as swift a service as possible.
