Work Accidents are the UK’s second most common type of personal injury claim. All UK employers are responsible for keeping employer liability insurance, which protects them from compensating employees for injuries and losses if they have failed to fulfill their responsibilities. This means that the employer’s insurer takes responsibility for paying 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 while performing duties on behalf of your employer somewhere other than your work base, we urge you to speak to us to discuss the merits of your case. We have found in many cases that people assume personal blame for their injuries, whereas the liability usually rests on their employers.
