Work Accidents are the second most common type of personal injury claims in the UK. All UK employers have the responsibility to keep employer liability insurance, which protects them to compensate employees for injuries and losses if they have failed to fulfill their responsibilities. This means that the employer’s insurer takes responsibility to compensate a worker if a worker suffers an injury due to:
- Defective or dangerous machinery, tools or equipment
- Excessive or extensive lifting or carrying of heavy goods
- Exposure to dangerous or harmful substances
- Faulty or dangerous work sites
- Violent attack by a customer
So if you have been injured at work or injured while performing duties on behalf of your employer somewhere other than your work base, we urge you to speak to us to advise you on the merits of your case. We have found in many cases that people assume personal blame for their injuries whereas the liability usually rest on their employers.
