Accidents at Work
Companies and employers have a legal duty to guarantee their employees ‘ health and safetyfor the entire duration of their employment. It requires the procurement of safety gear, the introduction of safety awareness programmes, the implementation of equipment controls and the development of safe handling policies for hazardous materials. Employers are now required to carry out company risk assessments to reduce any possible or potential cause of injury.
Despite these legal obligations towards employers, more employees tend to experience injuries from workplace accidents. These injuries include slips and falls, falls from height, exposure to toxic material, injury from defective devices and other incidents caused by lack of protective equipment. If you have an accident at work, your employer is allowed by law, to reimburse you for personal injuries. Most employers have a short and strict time frame within which injuries at work should be reported for insurance purposes. This is where we come in. Our personal injury support team is on standby to help you collect your insurance in the shortest possible period.
