Accidents at Work

Accidents can occur at any time in any job and in any working environment.

If you’ve had an accident at work, don’t be frightened of claiming against your employer. They have a duty of care to you and to providing safe working conditions. If your employer doesn’t fulfill these requirements, then they are not only putting you at risk, but more importantly, they are breaking the law.

Accidents can happen regardless of where you work, whether in an office, a factory, construction site or out on the road.

Employers have a responsibility to their employees to ensure that the working environment is safe and the risk of any accidents occurring is minimal, not only to protect their workforce, but to prevent employees from claiming against them.

These responsibilities can be met in many different ways, for example, carrying out workplace assessments, testing and maintaining machinery, providing appropriate safety equipment, educating employees in safe working, making them aware of potential dangers in the workplace and how to avoid them.

An employer must also comply with Health and Safety laws and regulations. In order for a work accident claim to be successful, you will need a good understanding of current legislation in order to prove that your employer is responsible.

Going back to work can be stressful too. It is essential that you don’t rush back too soon and have both the piece of mind and the time you need to make a full recovery.


The Accident Team at Abacus can help you in all these areas and enable you to stay financially stable throughout your recovery.
