If you have sustained an injury whilst at work as a result of another person’s negligence, then you may be entitled to a compensation claim.
As your employer, it is their duty to ensure that your working environment adheres to industry standard Health and Safety Regulations. Whether you are based in an office environment or undertake physical duties, rigorous legislation and laws have been put in place to ensure your safety. If, however, your employer does not conform, then they could be liable for putting your health and safety at risk.
