Accidents at workAccidents At Work

Lawyers at Excel law have a history of representing clients who have had an accident at work. There is a legal duty on employers to ensure that whilst at work an employee is working in a safe environment and that safe work equipment is provided to help prevent accidents and injury in addition to safe systems of work being put into place. Many people think that they can only pursue a claim from their employer if an accident occurred within the work place but this is not always the case if an employee has to carry out their job role outside the registered place of work. For example, an employed kitchen fitter could sustain a hernia/back injury whilst being expected by his employer to lift a kitchen appliance at a customer's house, on his own and in excess of 22kilograms, without being provided with any lifting aids manual handling training or other assistance.

Proof Of Employers Negligence

When making a claim for an accident, which occurred at work, a client has to prove that such an injury was sustained whilst at work and that the employer has been negligent in breaching legislation governing safety in the workplace and the safety and provision of work equipment. The evidence that helps prove this is, a log of the accident in the works Accident Report Book and an entry in your medical records confirming that you injured yourself whilst at work. If you have been injured at work and uncertain if you have a claim against your employer, call Excel Law and we will provide you with legal advice.
