Can I claim compensation for an injury at work?
Posted on 10th July 2018
Accidents occur in the workplace on a daily basis. Some appear trivial (tripping over loose cables, falling over objects that have been left lying around), but still can cause injury, and some are downright awful, and can result in serious harm and injury, at no fault of the employee. It's a known fact that many employers, who should know better, and can afford to train their workforce in Health and Safety, often cut corners and choose not to do so.
MG Legal, accident injury solicitors Lancaster, represent the dependants of employees, who have been unfortunate to have accidents in the workplace, resulting in death. Like other personal injury solicitors Preston and Lancaster Solicitors, MG Legal Solicitors, welcomes the news that, as of 1 November 2018, new, clearer rules are being introduced, holding businesses, companies and firms (not excluding Preston Law Firm, solicitors Garstang and solicitors in Longridge), more accountable for fatal accidents in the workplace.
MG Legal Solicitors, your Lancaster Law Firm, are pleased to confirm that the longest sentence for employers found to have breached health and safety is 18 years (for anyone over the age of 18).
