Home » News & Knowledge » Oakwood helped Mr B of Liverpool on a no win no fee basis after his unfortunateaccident at work; he approached us for claims advice.

Mr. B from Liverpool was 66 when he was injured by defective work equipment. He suffered from multiple injuries after the accident at work and his compensation helped him to cover the financial losses which his accident caused.

 

Defective work equipment is an everyday cause of accidents that we deal with in this company. Employers do have responsibilities to ensure that items used in work are free from defects which can cause accidents; or at the very least can increase the chances of an accident occurring.

Employers’ Responsibility

Employees are also responsible for their own health and safety in the workplace. You do have the right to refuse to do a job if you believe it is not safe or if you have not been provided with the correct equipment to do the job. Your employer cannot dismiss you or threaten to dismiss you if you refuse to work for genuine health and safety concerns for yourself or your colleagues.

If you have any concerns about health and safety at work you should always talk to your employer first; they may simply be unaware of any problems. If your employer does not listen to your concerns and act upon them as a final resort you may have to report them to the local authority’s environmental health department.

 

Oakwood Solicitors takes on cases on a no win no fee basis if you are unlucky enough to be injured in an accident at work we love helping people with their claims.

We are very upset when employees are injured through workplaces issuing staff with equipment which is not fit for purpose. Our caring professional staff feel that this type of needless suffering is not acceptable.

  • Your employer has a duty of care to:
  • Prevent any risks to your health.
  • Make the workplace a safe environment for you to carry out your work.
  • Ensure that all machinery and plant is safe to use.
  • Ensure that safe working practises have been set up and are being followed.
  • Provide adequate first aid facilities.
  • Inform you about any potential hazards involved in the work that you do.
  • Set up any emergency plans should an incident or accident occur.
  • Make sure that all materials in the workplace are stored handled and used safely.

Should your employer be in breach of any of the above and you have been injured as a result Oakwood Solicitors may be able to help you make a claim.
