An accident resulting in injury not only causes physical suffering to the victim, but is also a problem for the family members of the victim. If the victim is the sole bread winner of the family the loss of income resulting from the injury can cause financial difficulty which is made worse by the extra medical expenses for the treatment of the disease or injury.
Negligence of employers at the workplace can cause significant harm to employees. If you are an employee who is suffering from an illness or injury at work because of the negligence of the employer, claiming compensation for any damage is your right. The pain and suffering you experienced as a result of the accident will be compensated in such a claim. Financial losses such as medical expenses, loss of earnings and treatment costs will also be covered in a compensation claim.
In order to avoid such illnesses or injuries at work, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that there is a safe working environment for their employees. As part of this, employers should undertake risk assessments. This will alert them to dangers or health hazards at the workplace and assist them to identify measures that should be taken to avoid these hazards.
In some cases it may be possible to minimise the risks of working with certain machines or substances. This may be done through appropriate safety clothing, devices or equipments. It is essential that employers provide health and safety training to their employees. A failure by employers to provide health and safety training can give rise to them being liable for any injuries suffered in an accident.

We can help pursue your case on a no win no fee basis, whereby you will receive 100% compensation if the case is successful.
