The relevant law
All employees are owed a duty of care by their employers, which encompasses a duty to provide safe premises, safe equipment, safe systems of work and safe fellow employees.
Documentary evidence such as risk assessments and accident book entries can be of vital importance in claims of this type. If your employer refuses to admit liability, we will insist on prompt disclosure of the relevant documents and, if necessary, we will make an application to court on your behalf seeking an order for such disclosure before the main proceedings begin.
I was injured at work but I am frightened to claim against my employer. Can you help?
Under the Employers’ Liability (Compulsory Insurance) Act 1969, employers are legally obliged to insure against liability for injury or illness suffered by their employees as a result of their work, so there is no good reason for your employer to bear a grudge against you for bringing a claim. If your employer does treat you unfairly, our Employment Team are here to help.
