Your employer’s responsibility
Your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure that you are safe and not at risk of sustaining an injury whilst carrying out your work. If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault and you have sustained an injury as a result then you may be able to claim compensation.
Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you’re safe at work and has a responsibility to:
- Make sure you’re properly trained in how to do your job, which means providing you with sufficient training in the machinery you use, manual handling, Health & Safety
- Provide you with suitable personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Undertake risk assessments before you carry out tasks
- Manage business activities to minimise risks to your health and safety
- Provide safe working systems
I’m worried about claiming against my employer
It is worth noting that in any claim made against an employer, it is the employer’s liability insurance policy that will pay the claim and not them personally.
All employers must have insurance in place and do so to protect themselves in the event a member of staff is injured at work.
You are well within your rights to claim against this insurance if you have been injured at work and you should not feel worried or apprehensive about claiming.
How long do I have to make my work accident claim?
The law in England & Wales states that there is a 3 year period from the date of an accident in which you are able to make a claim. This is commonly referred to as the “limitation period”.
This 3 year claim period may also commence from the date you first realised the symptoms of your injury or illness may be linked with your work.
Every Spalding based accident at work claim is different and has its own set of circumstances so we always recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible, to avoid your claim falling outside of this 3 year claim period.
Call Nigel Askew Solicitors today on 01507 60907 to discuss your potential claim.
How much compensation can I expect for my accident at work claim?
The amount of financial compensation that you can expect to receive for your injuries depends on a number of factors, including the type of accident you have been involved in, the severity of your injuries or work related illness, how long it might take you to recover and whether you have been unable to work due to the accident and if have suffered a financial loss.
