Accidents at work often happen when your employer fails to follow the health and safety procedures, this could be through not providing you with the correct protective clothing or even through not providing you with the correct training. If you have been injured at work because of any of those things you might have a potential Employer liability claim.
If you’ve been injured during an accident at work, you could be entitled to compensation. Marley solicitors can help you get that, you have 3 years from the date of your accident to pursue a claim against your employer. Your employer’s duty is to ensure that you are safe at work and if they have failed to do this and as a result of this you have become injured then we encourage you to get in touch with us and discuss what you could do about your accident.

What you should do after you have been involved in an accident at work?
The most important thing you need to make sure you do is let your supervisor or manager know that you have had an accident if you are unable to do so then let your colleagues know so that they can inform your manager and supervisor, they should then write down exactly what happened in the accident report book.
It is vital that you go and seek medical attention because no matter how small your accident was, it could develop into something serious. It is always best to seek medical attention because even though you might not see any symptoms yet, your doctor can help catch out something caused by the accident that would have developed into a serious injury.
