Accident at Work Compensation Claims
No matter what or where your place of work is and what your job is, your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure that your workplace is safe, and they must protect you from every risk that you might face whilst at work.
This is not an ordinary obligation. The law recognises that workers give up their time, skills and energy for the benefit of their employer’s business or service and in most cases, to help their employers to make a profit. Consequently, the law requires every employee’s job and working environment to be as safe as it can possibly be. If there is anything that your employer has not done to prevent an accident from happening, then the chances are that they have broken the law and are liable to pay you accident at work compensation for your injuries.
This is what we are about
At The Claims Partnership in Preston, we are passionate about workers’ rights and about health and safety in the workplace. We use our decades of experience in this area of law to represent our client’s with tenacity, with care and with skill.
Accidents at Work can result in anything from a minor injury, such as a cut or laceration, through to the most severely disabling injuries, or even loss of life. At The Claims Partnership, we have huge experience of dealing with work accidents and injuries of all types.
