What are my legal rights after being injured at work? 

No matter which industry you work in, how big your company is, or how the company is structured, you are always protected under legislation. As an employee, you are entitled to a legal duty of care from your employer. 
 
This means that your employer has a responsibility to inform you of, and protect you from, any health and safety issues involved in your job role or workplace. This includes adequate training on any specialist tools, and providing PPE for any exposure to hazardous chemicals or materials. 
 
A more complete overview of what an employer’s duty of care covers, includes: 
 
Ensuring that all employee training is up to date 
Ensuring that the workplace is adequately staffed 
Completing regular risk assessments of the workplace and working practices. 
 
If this duty of care is not met, or is breached in any way, resulting in you being injured in an accident at work, then you are entitled to financial compensation, and can claim this from your employer’s insurance policy
 
This should always be done with the help of a specialist accident at work personal injury solicitor, such as our team at MG Legal. Get in touch with our team of expert solicitors, here, for a no-obligation discussion on pursuing a No Win No Fee accident at work claim.
